Autumn

I bought a set of Hero Arts Sentiments ages ago and somehow the right card hadn't presented itself to use any of them... until now.
This one seems just right for this clean & simple card, using Basic Grey, Indian Summer papers and stamp. It seems the more I make this type of card, the more I think that the style is 'me'. They give me the most satisfaction anyway.
I got the idea for this card from Julie over at Paper and Such... her work is inspirational!
Yesterday wasn't very productive, but today I feel that I may get somewhere, I've certainly got a lot to do, the last thing being to join my husband at the Rose Bowl for the first day of Hampshire's last home cricket match of the season. He's just left, but a whole day of a regular match is a bit much for me!
