Collage card and scrapling

I go through stages and now I just love the collage style. Can't seem to get away from birds or butterflies but I really don't want too, because I have cut out so many that I can just pick one at random for any design.

This first card uses the Clock collage from Hampton Arts which was gold embossed on watercolor paper (yes, I tried it) and cut out and placed on a panel on which I stamped and gold embossed a cling frame from Hero Arts, with dimensional tape. Used punched out leaves, prima flowers and a bird to decorate the clock.

This little scrapling is just as it sounds - scrap-ling.. very small and made from left-overs.

I am going to be a grandma again! Our son Joël told us that in March 2016 their second child shall be born. What a blessing and Sérena (see above) will be a big sister, which I'm sure she will love. I took this photo of her in the summer when they were with us for a week.

We are having beautiful Fall weather, the sun is still hot and such a welcome as it warms the whole house up in the afternoons. This photo was taken a couple of years back but it is always like this and I thought I would share the larger size as it lets you feel the atmoshere of an early morning late in October.

Enjoy the season! I am going to make a cake for the weekend.
