Papertake Weekly ,,,,,Autumn Skies

Good morning all,, hope all is well with you all :-) I have terrible headache and sore throat so I think i will have a rummage through the medicine cupboard in a minute and dose myself up ,,, hope it's nothing nasty like the begining of the dreaded man flu !!!

Anyway time for a new theme on the Papertake Weekly Challenge :-)


We are sponsored by the lovely Katarina at Whiff of Joy and this week there are some gorgeous brads on offer :-)

I used my lovely House Mouse potpourri stamp, this one is an unmounted one which I think is smaller than the wooden version, and quite fiddly to colour , had to wear 2 pairs of reading glasses to magnify the image lol :-)
I coloured the image with Copics and inked around the edges with Stormy Sky Distress ink. The papers are from a new Basic Grey Pyrus pad ,,, lovely eh !! I stamped the brown plain sheet with leaves and embossed with bronze spaekle EP. I also inked and embossed all the edges with the same powder,,, very sparkly :-) I added a few Robins Nest Dew Drops
the flowers are Prima and rhe rose was in a blog candy so not sure about that one.
The ribbon is SU Chocolate Chip and you can order that from Mandi.

oohh i almost forgot to point out my new Martha Stewart Mouse Punch ,,, will go and get a close up to show you better >>>>

Fab eh !!! perfect punch for all my HM cards !!! :-)

Thanks for looking :-) I am going to make a cuppa tea and take some pills now ,,hope this headache goes cos i have loads of jobs to do. I was in Malta yesterday buying loads of curtain fabric for the flat and Amy's room,, so have lots sewing to do AND there is a car boot sale here soon so I need to get some cards ready for sale ,, have boxes full !! Many of them have big flowers on that will not fit in an envelope so I have to alter them !! Have gone right off those big roses now, look nice but not practical on cards !!
