Autumn Days

Now here is a contrasting card to yesterday's!! This is a recess card which is quite fun and simple to make up. I have used the lovely SU set from the Autumn/Winter mini called Autumn Days and the matching DSP is called Autumn Tradition. It has beautiful colours!

The SU colours I have used here are Soft Suede, More Mustard, Ruby Red, Always Artichoke and Very Vanilla. I actually was drawn to this stamp set more by the little grasses, berries etc. than to the pheasant but I am warming to him!

Update on Ian! He is now talking but mostly cannot be understood. However he has said his name, date of birth, where he lives and where he is now so that is most exciting! He is eating more each day and has moved his right arm and leg a little. So little by little he is improving and will soon go across to rehab.

What a beauty this is! I love the paper and the whole color scheme of this card! I'm with you, I love the berries and grasses in this set. I'm so sorry to hear of your brother's accident! OMG how awful for him and all of you. I'm glad to hear that there is progress and he is starting to show positive signs. I'll keep him and all of your family in good thoughts and prayers. Best, Curt
