LIM 41

Hello crafty people, how good of you to drop in :0)
I have made a card or two  for LIM, Chrissie and Mandi have challenged us with a one layer card and they said
 
 The theme for your cards this week is 
LEAVES
 
I had some fun with this one, my stamp is from Elusive images, Wild Meadow and this is one of the ferns, sentiment from Hero Arts, Live Life.  Ink is Adirondak rainbow pad Cabin Fever.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
The second version uses a PTI Mat Stack 2 set and VersaColor rainbow set, Limone, great colours, 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
I'm still struggling to get back to complete health. Went away with my friends at the weekend, we had a gorgeous little cottage in Stratford-Upon-Avon, it was so cute. A two up two down which had originally been a one up one down LOL even after they extended into next door it wasn't big!! The weather was brilliant, warm and sunny.
But I was feeling rough and we came home early, such a shame. It's a gorgeous place to visit with lots of history, we saw some of the town and Shakespeare's legacy but need to do it all again now :0) SOOON!!! LOL

Hi Gay, sorry to hear you're still having health problems - hope things look up soon.
You were only a few miles down the road from me at the weekend (I live in Warwick, quite near to the castle) and yes you're so right when you say its a lovely area - problem is when you live somewhere I don't think you fully appreciate it.
Anyway loving both cards you've done for LIM this week.
Take care

Sally said...

Hi Gay, I love your fern stamps they are so delicate & you've stamped them beautifully. A great OLC. Sorry that your little break had to be cut short, I hope you're feeling better now. Me an' hubby have visited Stratford twice & I agree that it's a very interesting place. If you manage to go again, I recommend a visit to Ann Hathaways cottage. Your little cottage looks delightful, we stayed at a Premier Inn. lol.
