Autumn almanac

Forgive me but I have tried to get into the autumnal swing of things but I just can't seam to get into that particular groove at the mo.  So another festive offering for you and I had such fun in trying to 'create' holly leaves with my Stampin' Up! punches.  I found that they could be achieved by using the oval punch first and then using a trusty post it note to grab the end of the oval, take a circle scallop punch and bite the edges of the ovals with two of the scallops to make the pointy bits.

I will be happily entering this over at fab 'n' funky (bingo - flower, ribbon & stamped image option) and totally papercrafts (clean and simple).  Have a great day everyone and see you soon.

Supplies from Stampin' Up!
Stamps: welcome Christmas.  Ink: real red, tea stain and garden green.  Card stock: garden green, real red, crumb cake and very vanilla.  Accessories: real red designer button, old olive taffeta ribbon.  Tools: large oval punch, scallop circle extra large, top note die and swirl scribbles die.
