In the Style of Rennie MacIntosh!

Good Evening to my Crafty Friends, I hope you are well and have had a good day.
Well it is certainly getting cooler here, and dark so much earlier, I guess Autumn is on its way.

Well I should be a choral practise, I'm not playing hooky honest, but I was getting a lift this week with my Buddie as Alistair is away with the car, but unfortunately she text me to say she can't go, so I'm stuck.  Hope she isn't unwell, she didn't say in her message.  Anyway a night off to myself, in fact a couple of days as hubby is away on yet another canoe trip, finishing off canoing the River Spey, but I'm car less.

Thanks to you all for leaving such lovely comments on my last card, I love reading them, so keep them coming you are aways very encouraging.

My card tonight;
I am entering my card into the ;

I use one of the wonderful stamps from  the Macintosh Beauty set and coloured with Promarkers.
Vintage Rose Embossialicious Folder edged with DI
Sentiment from Stamp it Up Australia
Various colours of Core'dinations
SB corners

Hobby House Pearls
Dazzler and Ribbon from my box
Star Dust

I wanted to keep if fairly simple as the beautiful image doesn't need much in the way of embellishments.  It's the most lovely set of stamps, lots of images to create with.

That's me for tonight, hope you evening is a relaxing one for you.

Do you not fancy a tandem canoe with Alastair?
Good luck with your challenge. I think it would also fit the current challenge at House of Cards too if you fancy joining that one as well

Hi Kate,
another super card today.
I love that stamp and they way you have coloured it.
As you say the card doesn't need too much as the Artist was a very minimal and clean lined person.
Love your super bow and the beautiful colour.
Good luck in the challenge.
Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

Kate, this is one gorgeous stamp, and you've done it up proud. Love the coloring in the main image, and that pop of color behind it in the rectangle -- a lovely embossing folder to set off the focal image. Enjoy your 'free time' and have fun. Our weather is a tad cooler this week as well, and dusk draws in a bit sooner. TFS & Hugs
