Autumnal card with Color Me Autumn DSP

After a busy weekend, I’m back with an autumnal card made with products from the Autumn/Winter catalogue.  It’s very simple, letting the gorgeous DSP do all the work, with some help from these fab little wooden embellishments. 

Saturday I spent all day with crafty friends. The morning was my team meeting, and it’s always nice to get together with friends from my downline. We made stars from the Many Merry Stars kit, talked about forthcoming products and enjoyed a very extensive fuddle. For those who don’t know what a fuddle is, it seems this is a local word and it is what some people would call a “bring and share”. Well we brought so much between us that we were sharing it all day and beyond!

In the afternoon I held a new style of event which I called Craft & Chill. This was a bit like a scrapbooking crop I suppose. I provided the room, the refreshments and a Make & Take, and guests had the option to purchase additional M&Ts if they wished, or create their own projects which they brought along with them.

Everyone said how much they enjoyed the relaxed atmosphere and it gave people the perfect opportunity to finish off their Christmas cardmaking… and help make a dent in the rest of our fuddle!

We also made some stocking filler items for the cat shelter, which held a fundraising event the following day. Unfortunately, I didn’t take any pictures of the cat and dog versions – what was I thinking?
