Hello everyone
Hope your all well.
I had to make the swap card for Camilla's Swap on facebook.
and it's an Autumn theme this month
so wrote a little poem to put on the back

Autumn Leaves

The autumn leaves are falling down
In vibrant colour's
They lay on the ground
And the air is fragrant, crisp and cool

Oh how I love this time of year.
Darker evenings closing in.
Fire a light, and lights down low
it’s warm and cosy, tucked up inside.

I know it’s getting colder
But I really don’t mind.
For winter's on the way
Then it’s nearly Christmas time.

(By Yvonne Tune)

Hello everyone
Hope your all well,
I have just started colouring some of the Digi images myself,
 (not great) but will keep practicing,
haven't enough colours so ordered a few more from Letraset there is a discount code for Sept NEO3475
so if your ordering don't forget to use it, I saved over €10.00 by just looking on line for discount code.

I have my next Creative Card Making Workshop 
next Saturday the 21st of September in 
The New Oak Centre in Carlow
There are still 4 places available,
 if you fancy joining us for the day.
full details on my workshop page.

Happy Crafting

I love cards made with Digi images, and there are so many beautiful one's now to download, so yesterday spent some time looking at different sites, and found Funky Kits 
they sell some digi stamp images, Sugar Nellie being my favourite,
I decided to buy 2, and asked my Son to colour one of them in for me, as I have no confidence when it comes to colouring, and this is what he did for me, they are so cute.

So guess who's going back for more.
and guess who's going to be sick of me, saying can you 
just colour this one in softer shades.
I feel a Pro-marker, shopping spree coming on.
then a few quiet nights, having a go myself.

Our next fun evening has been changed to 
Tuesday the 17th, 
as most of the girls have something on tomorrow evening
please let me know ASAP if you want to come along
many thanks Yvonne
