GDT spot at MMM

Hi Folks,
I was really thrilled when the lovely people at Make My Monday asked me to do a Guest spot for the month of November.

The theme this month is Autumn, and this weeks challenge is Kraft and String.
For my card I used a cream watermarked carkstock and used a Papermania stamp, (borrowed from my crafty friend Diane - don't know about you, but its alsways great to ge your hands on someone elses stash) .  I masked this and over stamped a script in Frayed Burlap. I stamped the same image on a Kraft tag, again masking and using the same script. I then stamped the image in spiced marmalade, used a nesti to cut the circle and added using foam pads.  Flower is made from TH Tattered floral die, stamped in Spiced marmalade and spritzed with Glimmer mist.

The team at MMM have some fabulous makes to show so please pop over here to take a look, and this week they have a wonderful sponsor who is offering a £10. voucher for Joanna Sheens on line store.

I am entering this is

  Heck of a Challenge - 50 Shades of Autumn
  Come and Get It - Monochrome
  Gingerloft - No colouring (mines all ink)
  PaperPlaytimes - Shades of Autumn
  ABC - Tic Tac Toe (Brown cardstock/Fall Theme/Twine)

Had a great day at the Papercrafts show,met up with a couple of blogging pals - and some real bargains as well!

Thanks for looking.

How lovely - congrats on the Guest spot at MMM - and what a wonderful card to kick it off! I love the text across the tag and background, and that disc picking up the Postcard text and image - so clever. Thanks so much for all your comments - that's some very diligent catching up, and hugely appreciated!
