Hi Sue. There is something about these autuminalish cards that I just love, I can't put my finger on why, maybe its the colours you chose to use I don't know but it's really lovely and I'll learn more about my tree and Bushel basket when I watch the video. Finding it hard to drag myself away from the curling just now ! So I'll send lots of hugs and hope you have a lovely day xxx

Hello Sue and all
Another rather autumnal card today, we have had a cool change and even though only a little, yay! some rain. Reminds me of Harvest Festival when I was at school in England (won't say how long ago lol ! ). Love the card and so much about it, from the embossing folder to the gorgeous tree and barrel, don't have many of these dies but again, you get us thinking about our priority list Sue

Good Morning Sue. Another lovely card this morning. I think any gardener would love something like this. Personally I am a flower person rather than fruits I would prefer the basket to be filled with flowers.... but.... hey ho would not do one bit for us all to be the same. Well done Sue. Wishing everyone a lovely day. We have some sun shine this morning yyeeaayyyy
Kind regards Ann Toppcards Leeds

Unknown said...

Thanks for the reminder to try out the Majestic Tree, and for suggesting an oval frame with it. Also for the reminder how to make a cloud stencil with the Hills and Clouds set.

There aren't many designers who would think to fancy up the k in thanks, but that's one of the many reasons you reached the top spot.

Suzzette Yandle said...

A cute thank you card with a fun scene. You always impress me with the amount of details you put into designing your dies and cards. The uplifting leaves on this tree die are genius.

Viki Banaszak said...

What a beautiful scene! I love the way the leaves can lift up on the tree.

alimecca said...

Hi Sue,
Gorgeous card and brilliant video. Like Ateph, I am really loving these " Autumnal" cards. Autumn is my favourite season , just the colours are so beautiful, so that's probably why I'm liking the cards so much.
Sending love and hugs to all, Alison xxxx

CraftyJo said...

Hmmm... think I am definitely in the minority today ;) A couple of days ago there were lots of people not really keen on the 'grungy' card which I loved, today I'm the only one not too keen on this one :) I like the frame - the embossed part - a lot though :)

Lynn Dalby said...

Hello Sue.

Lovely card using some great dies. Thanks for sharing.

Best wishes

Pawprintx4 said...

Enjoyable, happy card today. I like the oval frame for the focal. Very effective.
I will be watching Hochanda to see the City-scape Die in action.I have not used mine as yet so good ideas are welcome. This was one of my first must haves from the new launch.

A super cute card. Reminds me if my young days on the farm. Thanks Sue.

Hi Sue,
I love the use of the embossing folder for this card. It really makes that wonderful tree seem like it's in a mist of other trees. Can't wait for the leaves to start budding out. I know it won't be too long as daffodils are in full bloom now.
