Welcome Everyone

The wonderful world of Zoe is what I hope to share with you all here on my blog. Life isn't always easy, but then that's the case whoever you are. But no matter what each day brings I always try to start and end it with a smile - to look back and know I controlled my day, the day didn't control me!

Autumn Crafty Boots challenge

Morning! (Well there's a little bit of it left as I type)

Today I want to share with you my DT card for the new Crafty Boots challenge which can be found here;

As you can see the theme is Autumn, and everything that goes with it.  My card is a celebration of these wonderful months.

The toppers are from Debbi Moore, and the leaves are from Sheena Douglas's paint fusion, which I coloured with Promarkers. I used Henna, Terracotta, Spice, Ruby, Poppy, Moss, Olive Green, Marsh Green and Pear Green to achieve the blends of colour on the leaves.  They took a while but am so pleased with the effect I created. I also used Core-dinations card which I embossed and spilt into the three panels. This ruby ribbon was a bargain from my local craft shop as it was sold for a £1 a roll, I think there is about 20 metres on it!  The card base is 8 x 8 and is made from snow white Centura Pearl card.

Hope you like my card and would love to see your creations entered into our challenge. Take care Zo x
