More cards made with Leo's lovely Crafty Templates for October.
There's a great mix of spooky halloween, monsters and quirky Autumn designs in the collection this month and they're great for all sorts of cards.
The first one uses the sweet leaf-trees template and I thought it would be just right for a Get Well Soon card. I liked the layout Leo suggested on her notes so kept to that idea to make the card
The brown card was from my stash as were the papers I used to cut the leaf shapes -these papers were from a pad I bought a few years ago and are all beautifully textured and shades of orange red and yellow - I had the blues version in my hand but didn't buy it as they were quite expensive - I've never seen these pads since so maybe I shouldn't have tried to be good that day!
The striped paper, fibres, ribbons and label are all from the Crafty Goodies Kit and are gorgeous - I think it's lovely how the touch of aubergine/purple really lifts the autumnal shades.
The little garden scene template seemed perfect for a New Home card, so that's what I made.
The base card, papers and ribbon are all part of the Goodies Kit, and I sacrificed one of the envelopes that came with the kit to print the sentiment on. Lots of quite heavy inking and some doodling as I wanted to give this one a more masculine feel - if my cousin manages to find the right house to buy, this one will be for him!
The apples on the tree are red sequins, and I made the little sold sign with scraps of card

I made another batch of Christmas cards yesterday afternoon - I managed 10, which is a pretty good total for a crafter as slow as me. I'll do photos in a minute and share them tomorrow.
I must stop waffling, I have stuff to do and I don't know where to begin so I'm procrastinating again.
Maybe just one more cup of coffee would help...... ;)
