Well what a mad week or so.... my Mojo decided it's had enough of this colder weather and has deserted me completely so to amuse myself I cut out rather a lot of decoupage sheets and of course I'm now in pain and have a hand that does not want to work as it should -  hence my disappearance from Blogland.

Anyway as I missed the Playground last week I was determined to get a snippets card made yesterday and I found this LOTV image I'd got already stamped and coloured with Promarkers. This is a quick CAS design I've used quite a few times in the past and is great for using up paper snippets. I used nesting dies to cut the image and brown card, and the paper is a snippet of Prima Doodle Deux. The leaves are a Uniko stamp (very roughly) cut by hand and the peel-off sentiment from my stash.

I shall enter this in the following challenges

Pixie's Snippets Playground 'use snippets'
Passion for Promarkers 'autumn colours'
Penny Black and More 'autumn'
Stamping Sensations 'autumn'
Creative Inspirations 'halloween / fall'
AAA cards 'CAS + masculine'
Fussy and Fancy Friday 'shades of autumn'
Addicted to Stamps and More 'anything goes'
Craft Stamper 'autumnal creations'
Mod Squad 'the way we were - case yourself' (here is my old card)

Thanks for popping by today and I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend

I can almost feel the pain from hand cramps cutting lots of decoupage Andrea, why do we do it to ourselves I wonder ?

It's a really sweet image, as LOTV always are and the colour of his jacket carries beautifully to the leaves, perfect for our Autumnal themes, many thanks for joining us at Penny Black and More and Stamping Sensations challenges.

Not seen this LOTV image before and I love it, beautifully coloured and a great design.
Seem like a typical farmer, maybe not these days but in the past you would see them looking over a gate just like the image.
Brilliant card.
Hope you hands improve very soon.

LOTV to the rescue. They do come up trumps time and time again. Love your colouring on this cutie. Hope your cutting hand is soon back on form. I'd leave mojo out in the cold when she does decide to return just to teach her a lesson!
