What a busy weekend I have had. Yesterday was so hectic - I managed a quick trip to Hobbycraft yesterday morning but I can't brag about my bargains as I didn't get any! Most disappointing but I supose there will always be another shopping trip to look forward to. Anyway Baz decided we should have a drive up to the Lakes and enjoy the beautiful scenery. I was so taken with the Autumn colours that I forgot to take my camera out and capture their beauty but I did manage to snap some beautiful fells in their seasonal beauty.
I spent the evening enjoying my Rubber Stamp Madness Magazine that arrived in the post - I really love looking throught this US Magazine. I only get two mags regularly RSM and Craft Stamper. I feel they are the ones that suit my Craft/Stamping Style whatever that is:-)
Now I have had a busy crafting day today and have managed to make this autumn card that will be winging it's way to one of my US penfriends - I got two more this week that makes 12 all over the USA - I really enjoy writing letters and receiving them - we all exchange cards, ATS and all sorts of bits & pieces that fit in and envelope.
Anyway back to the card I used a brass stencil and coloured it using pastel chalks throught the stencil. I then used translucent stencil paste over the stencil and although you can't see it very well it has raised the surface of the pumpkins giving it a lovely glossy finish.

I then went on to make some sweetie treat bags - I have a friend who is organising a stall next week at a local WI Christmas Fair and she was asking if I had any ideas for some child friendly bits to put on her table - I took myself of to Lidl and purchased some Christmas Haribo sweets and some Father Christmas chocolates and made some mixed sweet bags that I hope will be ok. If not I will take them to work and give them out instead of Christmas Cards!
