LHOSM, Autumn Colours.

Good morning and hello to all you lovely crafters, this feels like my very first post it's been so long since I've added a card I've nearly forgotten how to do it!! Seeing as it's a new computer too and I can't seem to remember which key does what I just hope something shows up!
I've been missing for quite a while as I had an op in June which didn't quite go to plan and I had to be re-admitted with a huge infection which took it's time to heal and left me for the first time in my life feeling weak, vulnerable and unable to work for weeks and as someone that's never ill or off work came as a BIG shock to the system. Even crafting didn't appeal to me. But the body is a wonderful thing is it not, and although it takes time, heals itself from within and hey presto I'm back.
Boy did it feel strange when I sat at my desk to make this card and you know that feeling of  'not really as good as I wanted it' well that's how I felt about this, think I'm rusty!
I suppose we are our own worst critics.
Today sees the beginning of a new challenge over at
and we would love to see your fabulous Autumn colours
and a GDT spot is up for grabs.

Go Kreate - Frilly frames 5 for card shape.
LOTV -  Raspberry Road Designs, Antebellum
Magnolia - Tilda with corn, coloured with distress Inks
Magnolia swirl and cloud dies
Shabby beige frantage
Flowers - WOC and others
Love these leaf dies, but not sure who they are by
Lace from stash.
Off for a catch up now.
Take care.
Sue Xx
