An autumn theme for Edwin (still on his pencil) !!!


Well another week has gone by, and I have to admit that my turnover of cards really is at an all time low, with an average of one per week!!!! I love the Papertake weekly challenge, and really store up my energy and creativity to produce my weekly entry. The papers I have used this week are from a free download from a wonderful blog site I have been following for some time, and were designed by Summer Driggs. She does some absolutely beautiful work, and produces everything for free. The autumn theme for this week's challenge lends itself beautifully to the papers from her Moments kit, and anyone interested in acquiring these, here is the link to her blogsite http://summertimedesigns.blogspot.com/ I tend to create most of my designs on the computer using the papers I download and there is a link in 'my favourite blogs' section to the freebie digital search engine. I tend to browse this every evening looking for bits and pieces which I store and then use to follow a particular design or theme for my cards.
A big thank you to everyone for the lovely comments you are leaving on my blogsite, it really does spur me on, so please let me know what you think of my entry this week xx
Update: Tuesday 9th September - I have now added the second card of Tilda alongside the original of Edwin. This shows the inside of the card which has a lovely tree losing its leaves - again another image from the freebie website.

OMG you sound so organised, it's quite scary!!! I wouldn't have a clue how to digi anything, but your designs have inspired me to take a look at that clever site for inspiration even if I can't use the stuff. BTW I love your work so much that I've added you to my blog roll so I can get here more easily.
Have a great day!
