Craft Nouveau

Hi there , welcome to my room and thank you for calling in .

I think that Autumn is settling into Adelaide as the days are definitely shorter and cooler . Which is fine by me but poor hubby finds it hard not to be able to go out on his gopher . So today he had to settle for a movie on TV and some games on his computer.

Sandy came  for our usual card making morning and seemed to wiz through 3 kits that I had made up . While Sandy was card making I was cuttlebugging ..[ has to be  craft terminology doesn't it?] I love having die cut shapes and images on hand and it uses up some scraps .

One of the cards made today is shared here . But before I do share it , this oldie learnt something new today ..just this minute actually .
The image used is from die cut images from Kraftyhands and which are also depicted in the CD ,   Craft Nouveau. I used this as my post heading and I did not know what Nouveau meant . I checked my trusty dictionary. Then I googled " paper craft nouveau "..yeah , right,  too much information .
rather loosely I think it just means .. "a style of " an image or paper pattern  style that is quite old .
Love the images and that really is all I need to know!! LOL.

  Green card base, ribbon  and  papers  from SU. Image ,diecut from Kraftyhands . Die cut leaves , punched small flowers and bling from my stash .

                                      The beautiful
                             thing about
                              learning is that
                             no one can take it
                               away from you .
