Autumn Has Arrived

I am sitting here bathed in sunshine. Can you believe that after the deluge we've had all day. It didn't just rain, it was a Monsoon!!! I hope where ever you are this Sunday you've managed to keep dry and enjoy whatever the day had to offer. I only just seem to have dried out after Friday's awful rain too. Autumn seems to have arrived with a bang this year.

Tuesday Taggers theme this week is Autumn, appropriately enough and they are being sponsored by The Craft Barn so it's definitely worth a look if you haven't joined in already.

I've been thoroughly enjoying getting back into tags again lately so I thought I'd do another. The background was done with Mustard Seed, Spiced Marmalade and Vintage Photo distress inks and sprayed with gold glimmer mist. The Crafty Individual trees were then stamped with vintage photo and a little bit of barn door sponged on top of them.

The little leaves where from the Tall Trees EI plate. I gold embossed them and coloured them with twinkling H20's before cutting them out and giving them a little shape.

Thanks for stopping by and for all the lovely comments you leave. I really enjoy reading them and appreciate them very much.

This is beautiful Lisa - very autumnal indeed unlike my latest blog post as you well know!! Weather is horrible here too although our road still looks pretty as it is still covered in yellow leaves albeit wet ones now! xx

Ooh lovely and Autumnal Lisa - yummy and cosy and warm! I had my own Monsoon but involved lots of new money and a new jacket!!!( Girly shopping days are good!) xx

Hi Lisa

A gorgeous tag..I love those trees very much.

We have been travelling this weekend and have been driving through lots of rain both on Friday and today .. .. but Saturday was kind when we went to a wedding - which was the reason for our travels.

I was dreading the wedding day being spoilt by lots of rain.

Hope you have had a good weekend.

Love Jules xx

Gorgeous tag, Lisa! I love those CI trees too and they are just perfect here. Wonderful autumn colours.

I had to drive to Leeds and back today in that monsoon rain. It never let up all the way. Horrible! An hour after I got home the sun came out!

Have a good week! xx

Jill said...

Yes, Lisa our weather has also been monsoon like!!! It did brighten up this afternoon though thank goodness! I am only just starting to get into Distress Inks and your examples are so gorgeous - aren't they always? Hope that you have a good week ahead. Jill x

Oh, that's very pretty. I love how the trees blend into the background as you get to the top of them.

Aren't these just the best colours to work with Lisa and this piece proves the point.

Rain, rain and more rain here since last week and shows no sign uf letting up and certainly no sunshine this end of the Country.
