Shopping and crafting!

Well so far it has been a weekend of Street Dance (Alex has a dance lesson first thing on a Saturday), shopping (food, pyjamas for Alex, socks for me and trousers for Tim), and crafting.  I am not complaining about the first and last...just wish that shopping didn't take so long, but what do you expect when you are accompanied by a 5 year old who wants every toy he sees!  Anyway, at least it was mostly successful.
Here is the first of my cards, which features a sentiment from JustRite, tapestry stamps, Kaleidacolor inks, rusty coppery embossing powder and a cuttlebug embossed frame.  I am entering this into CCC 'winter/autumn' (you can't get much more autumn than falling leaves!), Kaboodle Doodles 'Autumn leaves falling', SSSS 'Rustification' (the rusty, coppery embossing powder is my rust element), and CCCB 'Bible or inspirational verse'.
My second card used 7Gypsies paper and stamps, as well as a Crafty Individuals corner stamp, and distress inks.  I am entering this card into Creative craft crew 'Birds', PTW 'All creatures great and small', and I took inspiration from the Crafty creations 'photo inspiration' challenge.  That is all from me for now.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend...we are celebrating harvest festival in church tomorrow so I am very excited...it is one of my favourite services.
Love,
Caro

Great use of tapestry stamps :) I've got some of those kicking around somewhere, I should dust them off and give them a try! Thanks for joining us for this week's Simon Says Stamp and Show Challenge!
