Welcome to my Castle!

Welcome to my Castle!

I'm so glad you accepted the Royal invitation and can take time from your visit with the Queen to stop here a while. I've prepared special projects just for your visit, so please make yourself comfortable...and I hope you will be entertained!

In honour of  your visit the stamp set I have chosen to highlight is Autumn Days to compliment the season of your journey. It lends itself to autumn cards and here are a few for your visual pleasure...

This first card could also be used for a masculine birthday or a Thanksgiving card just by changing the sentiment:

The card stock is Chocolate Chip, Tangerine Tango, and Very Vanilla. The Classic Ink used is Tangerine Tango, Chocolate Chip, Old Olive, Cherry Cobbler, Crumb Cake, Always Artichoke, and So Saffron.

I liked the colours of the maple leaves so much that I made a Thank You note card using just them! And they look beautiful on the envelope as well.

But you can use this set for more than just autumn and Thanksgiving. The next card is a wedding card. Wheat is a symbol of prosperity and security, and that is what I wished for the newlyweds.

The pine boughs and pine cones of course make me think of Christmas - my favourite time of the year! I used them to decorate the gift bag and box below:

And finally I made this Christmas card using the pine bough/cone stamp and the berry stamp from the set. I really like how it turned out, and or course I had to add a couple of 'frozen dew drops' to the boughs!

I hope you enjoyed your visit to my castle! I certainly enjoyed your company.

And please come back and visit again anytime you are out and about the kingdom, my castle will always welcome you!
