It's a cool day, damp underfoot but not raining, so not bad for a November Sunday. There are even a couple of rosebuds and snapdragons lingering in the garden ... on hard frost and they'll be gone.
The EM has stepped up his bird feeding adding an extra feeder for the winter. As I write this the summer birds have gone but the winter visitors are arriving and a couple of coal tits and a blue tit are helping themselves to lunch.
Autumn watch at Casa Worthington :))
On to what I have to show you today.
It's the card I was in the process of making on Wednesday - scroll down and you can see the butterfly stamp in the photo of my desk in the WOYWW post.
Method: I stamped butterflies over the Vintedge Flourish paper, using the second generation of ink technique. The topper is a small square of the paper, measuring 2¼ "x 2", stamped with the wonderful Helen Keller quote from Our Daily Bread, Quote 1, stamp using VersaMark and heat embossed with brown powder. The butterfly was stamped with a brown ink and then dusted with gold mica (set with hairspray) before cutting out and adhering to the corner of the matted topper.
It's Sunday, so I'm going to steal a leaf out of Jules', Always With A Heart, book and not give a list of the materials used. So, it goes without saying, if there is anything you would like further details on, please do not hesitate to contact me, either by comment or email ... always happy to oblige :)
And, also because it's Sunday, it's time to take a trip over to Di's blog, Pixie's Crafty Workshop to check this snippet make into the Crafty Snippets #45 list. Seems that Di's a mighty busy lady at the moment - off on a 'teacher training' course ... oh goody, we can can play hookie and have more play time :))
I see it's lunch time again so I'm off for a cuppa and a bite to eat and then it will be back into the craft space for a session of scrapping. I'm having a great time following Shimelle's course even though it is making me look at how I organise my stash yet again. Currently, I have my 12"x12" sheets organised by maker but I think, after all the rummaging I've been doing, this needs a re-think and perhaps by colour would make more sense. How do you organise yours? What works for you? I'd be really interested to know how your organise your scrapping paper.
In the meantime, I do hope you are having a lovely day, whatever you are doing.
