I MADE IT ......... JUST!!!!!!

Phew!! I was almost late with my October cards but I made it by the skin of my teeth. This month the theme was "Spots" ............ by the time I finished I was seeing spots before my eyes! My parcels contained soooooo many beautiful spotty papers I didn't know where to start. Eventually I made 3 cards from each parcel ......... so let's start with the results of my parcel from Pat, .........

I really wasn't sure where I was going with this one, I wanted to use at least 1 of the lovely spotty circles Pat included ........ I realised it would fit the centre of a small doily and went from there. I puzzled over the topper for a while though but eventually I found this flower one that fitted the circle nice and went with the colours.

I like this one ......... and not just because it's red!!! It's bright and cheerful

Very similar to the one above but I think I used all the inspiration I had on the first one, LOL

So onto my parcel from Liz ...........

All fairly straightforward here, this one didn't scan well for some reason. I put the topper and layered card to the side just for a bit of difference. The topper was from my own stash as it was all I could find that matched!

I like this one, very simple and quick to make. I used my own flowers on it again.

Another very quick & easy one, but probably my favourite of the lot.

So that's the October cards ................ bring on Novembers!!!
