Good morning all.

We had a beautiful autumnal day yesterday and look set for another today...then it's all downhill for a week whilst the kids are on holiday!!

Today's share is a quick thank you card which didn't turn out anything like the idea I started with in my head!!

I used a long forgotten Kaleidoscope inkpad to create a graduated background on vellum. The same inkpad was used on the Inkylious stamp. The sentiment stamp is from Imagination.

Less is More - autumn's bounty
Shopping our Stash - fall/autumn colours

  13. I am like Karen...just found a pack of Vellum and wrestled with the idea of donating the varigated inkpad...now I am glad I didn't!

    This is lovely Carol I really like the variagated look of the image...so is striking!

    Will pop through your posts Ihave missed lately...but not sure if I can
    comment on each one as I have to go out and close blogger and reopen and sign in each time I leave a comment! Some weird glitch, I guess!
