Sigh.... I just love Autumn, and it's very definitely here..... or is it? It's positively tropical here today. I had one of those gloriously rare moments on my way to work on Thursday this week and darn it, I didn't have my camera on me. I was sat at traffic lights underneath a huge shower of falling leaves - every colour of autumn, gently floating down. I sat there wondering how come there were so many falling when there was barely a gust of wind in the air, and I was wishing like mad that I'd brought my camera. And as I sat there watching them, suddenly a swan flew overhead. It immediately reminded me of a book of fairy tales that I read when I was about 7 or 8 years old - for the life of me I can't remember what it was but for a fleeting moment I was transported back to my junior school.....and then it was gone. The lights changed, the swan disappeared from sight and I was back on my journey!
Over at Tag You're It! this week the theme is Autumn (surprise, surprise!!!) and here is my tag offering. The main stamp is one of the very first stamps I ever made and the 'hair' is made from stamping out lots of little leaves onto Basic Grey paper (perfect for this time of year!!) and cutting them out. You can't really see from the photo but I've been hotfoiling again - lots of bits here and there to highlight the leaves.
Well I have lots of crafty plans for the weekend - Thank You for popping in on your travels, it's much appreciated! ;o) xx
