Create your day with love from the Homefront . . .

Hello everyone!It`s Tracy Easson here today and I am so excited to be sharing my 1st post with you as a member of Susan K Weckesser's first ever Design Team.  It`s an honour and such a privilege to be creating alongside some amazingly talented ladies.
Below are the beautiful words of inspiration Susan gave us to spark our imaginations this month:
Autumn is the party dress Mother Nature dons prior to wrapping herself in white blankets for a long winters nap.
I have such happy childhood memories,walking to school all wrapped up snug against the cold nip in the air, rustling through all the pretty jewel-coloured leaves that had fallen from the trees.
Sooo, I gathered together Autumn coloured felt, Scissors, Black Versacraft ink pad, Bondaweb and the stamps I fell in love with Unity & Susan K Weckesser Create your Day stamp set
Next I came up with a plan and thought you might like a peek
Now the fun part stamping and cutting . . .
 Using Bondaweb is so easy; cut it to size, pop on the back of the shapes, cover with a damp cloth and then, with your iron on a moderate heat and the no steam setting, press gently for about 10 seconds and allow to cool.
I stamped the house twice so that it could be pieced together.
I added a few of my wonky tonky stitches to give it a little touch of whimsy and then mounted it onto another square of felt.
Still needed that little something to finish it off so rooted around my stash and came up with these little seed beads, scattered and fixed in place with Glossy Accents.
So what have you made I can hear you cry?
Well I can tell you that the fabric box once held a candle and now it houses . . . .nooo sorry I can`t tell you yet because this is my first gift to share for Susan`s Christmas Love Campaign and I want what's inside to be a surprise, but have taken more pictures to share at a later date, promise!
This campaign is so heartfelt and filled with love that
I hope you will join us in sharing too.
Till next time
Happy Crafting
