2 cards using Simon's FAB October 'Season of Thanks Card Kit !!!

oohh my monthly arrived !! not the dreaded one ,, the fabby one that's like a birthday pressie landing on your doorstep every month ! :-)
The Simon Says Stamp Card Kits are fabulous and this new October 'Season of Thanks' kit is GORGEOUSSS :-)

They are selling like hot cakes so unless you subscribe you may be disappointed :-/




I made my card using this gorgeous card by Marion Vagg on the Muse Challenge to CASE 


and this is my interpretation ,,, I 'Autumned' it up a bit :-)


I used the same 'you' die as Marion and I made the 'thank' bit using shrinky dinky plastic and a 'Thanks' die with the 's' cut off  !

Next up is a card I made to enter the Splitcoast Stampers Fan Club Sketch and 'Branching Out' Theme



Thanks for looking, I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)

Love autumn cards so yours are wonderful inspiration, Lorraine. Great take on the Muse card - the sequins are a nice design touch.

Thank you for your reply Lorraine. I had not realised that the bird is wooden, reading your blog you speak of die cuts and shrink but not that!

As i wrote my comment it was with something of a heavy heart because you cards are lovely and it is a pleasure to delete my previous comment and thank you for joining us at Craft-Room Challenge XOXO Zoe

you have captured the essence of Autumn perfectly on your two cards. Both so different but equally as nice. Hugs Mrs A.
