S.W.A.T September Sketch

Happy September Everyone!  Spring has sprung and it's also Father's Day and my Sister's Birthday today which all signifies a busy month ahead for us here!  The past few days we have seen some beautiful fine weather but there is still a touch of winter in the air.  I am eagerly awaiting for the first of our Spring orchids to flower and have been checking on them each day to no avail.  But it won't be long now and when they do I will be sure to take some photos.  Our garden is a hub of activity at present with all the birds busily preparing for the mating season, new lambs and goats are all around us on the neighboring properties and today I spotted two baby pelican's following their mother across the pond on the way into town.

Being the beginning of a new month, it means that its time for a new Challenge over at Sketches with a Twist.  It was my turn to decide on the twist this month so I have chosen embossing either dry or heat embossing to be included on your layouts/cards this month.




Here's my card using some lovely Autumn Themed Papers from Stampin' Up! and sentiment from Unity Stamp Co!  The butterfly is also a Stampin' Up! Stamp whilst the flowers are all from my stash.  I used a woodgrain embossing folder to include the twist on this card!

This month we are also teaming up with Outback Scrapping which means you have a chance to win a $50 Voucher to spend at OutBack Scrapping.  So for all the details on how to be in the running please see here.

Also my lovely fellow DT Members have once again outdone themselves with an array of wonderful layouts for your inspiration using the sketch and twist so be sure to pop over and check them all out and I do hope to see you playing along with us this month.

Captivating card but your approach to embellish the card i.e use of flowers and butterfly inspires me a lot...
