I'm Here.....

Hello...yes its been awhile ...I'm just about unpacked...just a couple of boxes to go...awaiting furniture...and a little bit of work to be done...including installation of a wood burner...but the cottage is feeling almost like home...I'm so pleased to be here.  I've been out and about getting to know where things are (thanks to the SatNav!) and finding local shops etc.,..its such an adventure..I cant wait to settle into village life.  I've already found a very local crafting centre that do classes and booked myself into a needle felting one on Thursday.  I thought it would help me to meet up with the local ladies...I'll let you know how I get on..

My craft room is just about how I want it I have been having a play and made a card for this weeks Less is More  Colour Challenge...Autumns Bounty....

Sorry about the pic but its a dull old day here....anyway..I had a play with some distressed inks and then cut out the leaves with a new MFT die 'Falling Leaves' and arranges them on a tag cut from a piece of BoBunny DP...the twiggy bit is a Memory Box die that I trimmed and I finished with some  pearl 'berries'.. I frosted the edges of the leaves with a bit of Wink of Stella but the camera hasn't picked that up.
I hope all is well with you...and I hope to be back to share some more cards later in the week.
Happy Crafting
