Autumn days

Well Autumn sure feels like its here !!! The Lime trees down our road have been loosing leaves for weeks now !! The weather sure isn't warm any more either !!! I am tying my hand behind my back so I don't reach for the heating switch !!!!

My card is a House Mouse image with the rabbit eating the autumn apples. I coloured the image using water colour pencils, somehow I find I can work with these on these stamps so much easier than promakers !!! I downloaded the paper free from It is from the Fall frolic collection. There are so many lovely papers there !!! The idea with the gems was to look like falling leaves across the page .......... hope it works !!! And of course the punch I used was a Martha Stewart one !!! So as I am trying to not reach for the bling stuff and flowers ........... no glitter, not a Xmas card and bling ......... mmm I guess I failed on the bling as the leaves are gems but no flowers this time !!!! hehe !!! The next card will be a Xmas one tho ................
