I've used the lovely leaf image from Summer Silhouettes, stamping it twice using my stamp-a-majig to merge them together - and as you can see, this is not just a summer set! It's very quick and easy to get the autumnal effect - the stamp was first inked up with More Mustard ink, then more ink was added to the rubber using markers. I laid the brush tip of the Cajun Craze marker on its side to get the ridged effect you see on beech leaves and then just tapped the other colours more randomly.
I love this little sentiment from Made for You, a set of three really useful sentiments in this gorgeous font (the others say 'happy birthday' and 'especially for you'). I am loving the Naturals white card stock as much as the Naturals Ivory and find it perfect for one layer cards using the nature images I'm so drawn to.
Here's what you'll need to make this card
Stamps: Summer Silhouettes, Made for You
Ink: More Mustard, Cajun Craze
Card stock: Naturals White
Other: Markers in Early Espresso, Always Artichoke, Cajun Craze, Gumball Green, stamp-a-majig

I took this photo of the view towards the Corinthian Arch at Stowe yesterday.
Normally the trees would be a riot of autumn colour but as you can see, they've barely begun to turn. I used to drive up here everyday on the school run which I miss, partly for the view and partly for the entertainment. I'm afraid my youngest son picked up my bad habit of talking at other drivers and on one memorable occasion when we were held up behind a very slow car, he said cheerfully: "Steady on love! We wouldn't want you to burst your engine!"
Good gracious - can you believe it's nearly the end of the week? Time certainly flies when you're having fun! See you tomorrow,
