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!

Autumnal we say!

Good morning!

I'm back today to share my latest Crafty Boots challenges DT project, and the theme this time is - 


As chosen by me! Yep I have chosen this theme as it is one of my favourite times of the year. I love the colours, smells and the fact that I can start to wear layers - boots with long socks, long tees under short sleeve tops etc. So for this challenge, I want to see Autumnal colours, items, characters, leaves or Pumpkins. As long as it has an Autumnal theme then it's okay by me!!

Here's my make - 

I chose to use one of the new Saturated Canary images called 'Tidy Up' The one thing Autumn does so well is the leaves - all crunchy and colourful. So I thought this image works well. I coloured her with a mix of markers using bold autumnal colours. I then stamped out the leaves using Stampin'Up stamp set 'Wonderfall' Thankfully the ink pads from SU  - Calypso Coral, Lucky Limeade & Raspberry Ripple - matched my colours along with Walnut Stain Distress Ink. A simple green mat set against centura pearl card stock created the backdrop along with a faint script which is the SU En francais script stamp. I used Antique Linen ink. A few Card Candis and 3 pennant punched shapes accented the project.

Here's some close-ups - 

I really enjoyed using these colours and you'll see I've not added a sentiment as I want this card to be suitable for most occasions. 
Take care Zo xx

Stunning work Zoe, your colouring is really outstanding. I love your leaves, they are very unusual.

I think I was enjoying autumn up until last night and after a sleepless night I am feeling like the proverbial zombie this morning.
