Shades of Autumn

All being well, this will appear while I am out riding...so fingers crossed!!

Well, I failed in doing very little yesterday...seems I can't do "lazy"!!
 I ended up doing housework, then a bit of gardening (it was a shame to waste a glorious day), then I took Suzy for a walk (Mog is far to frail to go very far now) and then I made this card!! I had great fun making it as I love the Autumn, particularly the colours,(although the leaves are only just turning here at the moment) and the earthy smells that you get first thing in the morning when the light is just breaking



I used my lovely Happy Harvest papers again. The cute image came from Squigglefly and was coloured with Promarkers, as usual. I found the lovely rust satin ribbon in my stash, it came in a bundle from Crafty Ribbons

I would like to enter these challenges

4 Crafty chicks #162 - Fall/autumn
Allsorts #227 - Autumn colours

We are in for a warm day apparently so I hope to get the lawn mowed, if it's dried out from the torrential rain and spectacular thunder storms we had on Thursday night!

Whatever you are doing I hope it's a good day xx
