Hello Everyone,

The weather has turned a lot colder here this weekend so it looks as though I'll be wearing my bigger coat for dog walking later!

I've probably said before that I give quite a few of my cards to an elderly aunt as she has a lot of friends and isn't that well off and she does seem to appreciate them.  This is one I've made for her and the colours were inspired by the latest Passion for Markers challenge.

 It is part of a background stamp called Flora Background from Simon Says Stamp and I've heat embossed in gold and coloured with my Zig markers.  The 'Hello' die is an old one from Spellbinders.  It was quite hard to get this photographed right with the mirri card.  It looks as though there are marks around the circle but it's just shadows.  I must have had about 5 goes but gave up in the end.

I would like to enter:

Passion for Markers - Green/blue/purple
Classic Design - Anything Goes
Rabisco - Anything Goes

Have a good rest of the day and thank you for visiting.
