CAS Colours & Sketches - Challenge # 241

Wow, it's Tuesday again so time for another challenge. As this is my third challenge of the month it means it's a colour one.

When I came up with this colour combination, I thought it would be a great one for Autumn. Having said that, this past week has been pretty dull and dreary here in the UK weather wise. So, I decided to  come up with a something a little more cheery and summery with the colours.

Random Act of Kindness (RAK) September Blog Hop

Welcome to the Random Act of Kindness (RAK) Blog Hop. You are visiting me, Fiona Whitten, here in the UK. 

I am shareing the cards that I recently sent and received as part of the Random Act of Kindness Group on Facebook. 

Each month, we each select a few people from the Group to send a RAK card to, the aim is to brighten their day. Please feel free to join the Group if you would like to participate in the RAK cards movement (blogging is not mandatory). #imbringingRAKcardsback #makeacardsendacard

As in previous months, I made six cards and randomly selected people to send them to. In the end,  3 went to the USA and 3 to Australia. I'm now in the process of making my September RAK cards so I'll share those with you next month. I'm hoping that this month more people from the UK take part, as I'd love to send to them.

These are the cards that I sent in August.

Card & A Cuppa with Painted Autumn Suite

My Card & a Cuppa events restarted last week after the summer break, and I decided to use the Painted Harvest Suite for the cards.

I hold these events over at the Grange Chocolate Cafe which is in the Holme Grange Craft Village, Wokingham. As of this month they will be on the 1st and 3rd Wednesday of each month.

Merry Little Christmas Gift Packaging

This past Tuesday, on my Facebook Live,  I shared an adorable gift box using the new Merry Little Christmas Designer Series Paper and the Acetate Card Boxes. As part of the video I showed people how I made the tag on the box.

Gifts, Christmas

I also mentioned that I would post info on today's blog including a tutorial on how I made the box etc. This is now on the Tutorials Page.
