Back with Magnificent Maple

Oh me what a dreich day!! 

Need a quick translation?  

A combination of dull, overcast, drizzly, cold, misty and miserable weather. At least 4 of the above adjectives must apply before the weather is truly dreich.

I can testify we are definitely hitting all the adjectives! 

But to brighten my day I thought I'd share this little card with you.  This is my thank you card I made for customers last month.  It's using Stampin' Up!'s Magnificent Maple with a combination of Gorgeous Grunge. 

The card base is Early Espresso with a Whisper White mat.  I stamped the maple leaf in Early Espresso then randomly stamped Gorgeous Grunge on top of it in Calypso Coral and So Saffron. I thought the natural look of the Natural Trim Ribbon helped finish it off. 

My Stampers 6 Ladies always receive a little something extra so I added a handbag made with the Petite Purse Bigz Die filled with some sweets.  They also got some hand gel to put in their real handbags! 

I used Calypso Coral card stock and the Epic Day papers as decoration. The button detail was achieved with the Boho Blossoms punch and a retired brad. 

Did you see the news yesterday?  Lots of extras to be had from Stampin' Up!  Have a look to keep up with all the exciting offers. 

I'm off to be nurse maid to my daughter.  She has been sent home from school with a migraine, poor lamb. 

Keep cosy and I hope it's not dreich with you!  x

Your card is awesome, Aileen, but that purse is spectacular!! I hope the dreich (thanks for the new word!) blues go away soon and you get some sunny fall days! And I hope your lamb feels better. As a fellow migraine sufferer, I can honestly say I feel her pain. I hope she can stay well hydrated. Hugs, Darnell

I do love your purse too-that looks simply gorgeous!
Thank you for the dreich definition-I would never have guessed that one! Do you pronnounce that "d-r-i-k-e or d-r-e-e-k ?

A great thing about yucky weather is the opportunity (excuse maybe) it gives us to go to our craft space and create something fabulous. I absolutely LOVE how you brought that grunge stamp into play with the leaf - its gorgeous! Thanks so much for joining us this week at ATS&M.
