So, the leaves are falling in our pissoir (I know it's an ally way, but the local male population (and some of the girls) disagree and use it as a public convenience). Autumn is on the way, though the weather has been rather lovely, lots of sunshine - though snow is promised for next week.
Rob has been setting up a shop using Frederick. He is selling his photographs in card format or mounted onto board (website when I can find the card I have just misplaced). He has very kindly let me show my cards too - but he is selling far more than me (about 50-1).
This morning, while David and I went to Stourbridge for their open day an American lady visited Frederick and told Rob that she read my blog. I am so sorry I missed her. Please come and visit when you are passing again - I don't get that many readers!)
Meanwhile, I have made only two cards in the last month. This one - a birthday card - and a Christmas card which I'll show next time.
I Cuttlebugged some white card and matted it onto some red which had the bottom edge punched out. Then I wrapped some black velvet ribbon and then some metallic type ribbon around this panel. The metallic ribbon was a pain to stick down - even using glue dots didn't seem to work well.
The panel was then stuck down onto a white card blank using lots of double sided tape to keep the ribbon stuck in place. The red "poppy" was originally a hair decoration from the £1 shop.
