Autumn Blessings!

Hello Everyone,  another weekend, it's come around so quickly, doesn't seem that long since we were looking forward to going to the concert.....it's a week ago. Anyway, it's now raining, and we have the most stupid film on the TV, but it's just great that we can sit in a cosy room and not care about wasting time in this way, oh retirement is the most wonderful state to be in. Having said that, we were busy around the house this morning and Alistair also took his friend Derek to the hospital to have a cataract removed, that being successfully done has taken him home, so the day has not been all wasted.

Thank you all so much for your kind comments on Woodbeard, I do love to read them and I appreciated your time.

My card today as you can see from the post title is Autumn themed and I'd like to enter into the;
https://caswatercolour.blogspot.com/2019/10/cas-watercolour-october-challenge.html

The leaf stamp is from Creative Stamping magazine, first stamped with ink and them a gold watercolour wash from Gansi Tambi paint. I've splattered gold watercolour over the paper and added little strips of watercolours in the background, The sentiment is from CC and I've finished off with some gold gems.


It's also CAS Watercolour Challenge Blog's 3rd Birthday, so Happy Birthday to them.

That's me for now, enjoy your weekend whatever you're doing and see you soon,

This is a lovely fall card, KAte. I like your modern design. I am always afraid to stamp straight to card as my hand is not always steady!

The maple leaf is so beautifully coloured Kate and love the stripes and spatters in the background and the finishing touches of the sentiment and the three gems go perfectly. Sorry to be a little late visiting but we were away in Yorkshire last week. Being able to relax and do what you want is all part of being retired so enjoy! x
