Bye bye summer

Hello lovely people,

It's double trouble from me today with 2 blog posts and the first one for you is for our new challenge at In The Pink where we have the theme...


There are lots of lovely fancy fold designs out there and I always think they make for a really special looking card.  My favourite at the moment is the criss cross card so here is my creation...

I am having to limit the number of Magnolia stamps I buy as they are so lovely I could easily have them all, so I just picked my one absolute favourite from the last release which was the Pink Lemonade collection.  And this is it!
I think I am clinging on to the last bit of sunshine and warmth with this card! Yes, I know it's really autumn now but shhh, no-one has told the weather yet :-)

I made a large pull out tag to go inside but have decided to leave it blank for now until I decide how it should be finished depending on what I do with the card!
