Hedgy Gift


What a difference a day makes - yesterday it was freezing and pouring with rain all day and today we have sunshine and hopefully i'll be able to dry some washing !! I recently gained a bit of a problem on a blog i was following 'Stamps R Us Challenge' - somebody had taken it over and was running it like a soapbox and it was cluttering up my reading list - so i found out from the ladies on the Docrafts forum, how to delete it and while i was doing so, i got rid of another 50 blogs, that had been inactive for the last year - mostly Challenges , that have since shut down.

Today's stamp is one that i bought at The Glitter Pot in the sale and have never used !!, but as there were several 'Autumn' challenges around, i thought it would be ideal, as it reminds me of Alan and H and the 5 bags of cooking apples i now have sitting in my kitchen, that the boys picked, when they were invited round to Alan's old bosses mini orchard last weekend !! The papers are another item that i bought, because i liked them at the time, then i thought the other day why did i buy these !!, now i know why !!, they are - Basic Grey 'Pyrus'. The plain paper has been embossed with - CB 'Victoria', Punched edge - MS 'Modern Garland', Flowers- 'Wild Orchid', Leaves- Sizzix die, Gems - Hobby House.

A lovely image & a great card Sam. Love all the inky edges you are doing of late - is that ink dusters or what? well done you on your blog spring clean too - wouldn't know where to begin with that one but like you I bet I have loads to clear out.
