Autumn at the Craft Barn

I wonder if I'll be able to catch on the calender's I've missed :) I'd bought the 12 little things when it was announced so need to use them and thought what a nice little gift it would make for some friends and family so if some are not my usual style it's because they are made for someone else
Week 10 is Autumn colour and leaves
Well after making such a rich colour background with my distress inks and gold spray I was going to die cut leaves out of it but changed my mind and stamped in black archival keeping it simple.
Week two is red, hearts and embossing
Yes I know this is a little on the cute side but I like the sentiment which says "three things in life that should never be broken Toys Promises and Hearts"
I stamped and embossed the image as I don't have a memento ink pan and coloured with promarkers, I then drew the patten on the bottom to match the stamp.the hearts are then stamped with the new Festive Berry DI

Yes it's another easel card lol

I like both your calendars! They are so different from each other and so delightful! I guess my favourite, by a nose, would be the Autumn page, but then again....TFS!
