Fab'n'Funky Challenge #557 - Autumn Colours

 Hi everyone..well I was asked by Chris if I would like to join the Design Team of Fab 'n' Funky and seeing as though she has been a dear friend for a long time I said yes! The theme this month is 'Autumn Colours' and it was chosen by the lovely Pat.

I embossed the background and then die cut several leaves and inked them in autumnal colours and then added a verse of the poem by John Keats. I do hope you pop on over and join in the challenge and see what the DT have made.

Thanks so much for all your lovely comments on my previous post and me and 'the hubster' had a lovely day out on our Anniversary. He bought me a Radley handbag and purse which I love! and we also went to Betty's in Harrogate for afternoon tea. Gorgeous scones with jam and cream!
Take fare and lots of huggles xxxxxx Sue xxxxxxxxxxx

Birthday 'Boy'

 Hi everyone! We are having such mild weather here for the last few days...it was nice to get out for a walk with the boys this morning. My card is for our Son-in-Laws birthday (he doesn't do blogger LOL) and the image is from Mo's Digital Stamps...he has a huge collection of game consoles which he has a spare bedroom for! and he's very computer savvy so if I've ever had a problem he's the go too to fix it.

It's our Wedding Anniversary on Saturday so I'm hoping the weather is fine because we are going out for the day ...I have been glued to the television watching all the parades ...I love watching the armed forces and bands marching we do it so well in this country...we will never see a monarch like her again she was devoted to her duty and may she RIP alongside her husband.

Take care and lots of huggles xxxxxxxxxxx Sue xxxxxxxxxxx

Anniversary Card

 Hi everyone...I've been playing with some new Quatro D kits from Toni Darroch (Stamps By Me). It was my very first attempt at using stencils that made up the image and then stamping and then die cutting the image then putting the image in an embossing folder. I know you probably will have done this before LOL but I was rather excited to use a new product.

I've made this anniversary card for my wonderful neighbours next door..we have got on like a house on fire ever since they moved in next to us 10 years ago...but sadly they are both seriously ill..Ted has dementia and Brenda has cancer..to say we are both devastated is an understatement to see them both deteriorate after both being so lively and energetic. Brenda and I both love our gardens and when we bought new plants we always bought each other one...we all did so much for each other it's so terribly sad.

The sad news about the Queen passing she did so much for this country and beyond and will be greatly missed.

Take care and lots of huggles xxxxxxxxx Sue xxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
