I hope you've had a good day wherever you are, if not then I can only hope tomorrow is better for you.
I've been out and about today ... lots of errands to do ... and it's been cold, blustery and showery! Just the kind of weather, you'd think, to keep the little neighbour-hood tricker/treaters tucked up warm and cosy at home. You'd think! But no, the little darlings arrived, as they have done every year since we arrived six years ago. They were all dressed up and looked fabulous. Sad to think that we won't be here to see them next year, sigh!
On a more cheerful note, one of those errands we did today was to do some measuring in our new home and just check out the garden. It's an old garden, the house was built in the 1950s, so there are quite a few well-established plants, including two cherry trees on either side of the front gate ... I can't wait to see them in blossom :)
I have a duo of cards to share with you today.
The 'kraft' layer is in fact cut from a manila folder ... found in a box of stationery leftover from my freelancing days, and forgotten - and probably would have stayed forgotten if we weren't moving house ... and it was the perfect shade too.
The topper, from Cardmakers Delight, and the 'kraft' mat were also edged with the brown marker and then it was blinged up with Platinum Stickles.
The embellishments, the lace and pearls, are from stash.
It's not like me to make two identical cards, I much prefer to create one design and then move on, but the patterned paper is A4 size (8.27" x 11.69", about US Letter size) and, at this time, it seemed more practical to use up as much of it as possible rather than add the leftovers to the snippet pile. I may even do the same again ... it didn't take much longer to make the two as it would one :)
It's been a long day for me, time for bed.
Take care and happy crafting,
