Autumn leaves and evening sky

Hi you all, another week is racing by quicker than I can think! I did not have much crafty time yesterday, as I visited a friend and then spent time helping a neighbour, but I did manage to finish off this tag for Simon Says Stamp and Show where it's all about leaves this week. I would have liked to use some real ones, but most of the leaves here are still green and on the trees....so I made a selection out of scraps of paper and miri card, and popped them into a pocket on a tag. The tag has been inked with rusty hinge and embossed with copper EP, but it doesn't show up to well here. The pocket has been cut from a scrap of leafy DP, and stuffed with some hessian and lots of leaves. 


On Tuesday it was very cold and poured all day, with a storm towards evening. Then, just before it got dark, I looked out of the window and saw this wonderful sky. My apartment faces east, so this was just the reflection from the western sky....





And then I saw the rainbow, so pretty!




A few minutes later it was dark, and the moon rose, what a lovely evening! And something to remember on dark, wet and dreary days like today.

Here's wishing you all a lovely day, take care, and thanks for coming by!

  8. Gorgeous tag, love how you tucked the leaves into a pocket, very clever. Your photos are exceptional, they look like a professional took them. Your view is breathtaking,in the first 2 photos I expected to see a castle off in the distance. Looks like a picture out of a fairytale.

  15. Gorgeous project, Valerie! The photos are amazing! A weird thing is happening on your blog with little labels/tag floating on the screen stating 403 forbidden, this filed removed due to violation of Image Shack. Very strange!
