Hello Everyone...
Sunday afternoon here in NZ and it is POURING down...what a great day for crafting.. and I did too..
Have to go to work shortly for the tea rounds.. then home to roast lamb..and chocolate mini muds cakes for pudding..YUM!!...well worth getting drenched for the third time today..

I'm here to share my DT card for Lacy Sunshine  and with a new challenge of...

CHANGE OF not really worth doing a Spring card for my DT card for that challenge [as that's where I am at the moment] went for Autumn/Fall..which is really my most favourite season..

And here is my card using the gorgeous Rory Collecting Autumn Leaves 

Rory is coloured with Faber Castell pencils..except for her trousers,I used a copic and shaded with pencils..

There's the front view and the photo has gone a bit wishy washy..sorry about that.....loads of die cut leaves...a real acorn...alphabet resin letters...papers are MME "The Sweetest Thing"...Marianne bird on a branch and fences..

The orange netting had chocolate sweets in it and I bought it special for this card..[fibber]...I needed the chocolate.. and the bag was just lying around and made a real nice bow...all soft and sort of fluffy.

Challenges to enter...

Crazy 4 Challenges  [Leaves or Leaf]

Open Minded Challenges  [Fall/Autumn]

Crafting for all Seasons  [Colours of Autumn]

So there we go...thanks so much for stopping by..October is sneaking up next week..and we went to daylight saving last hour ahead now and have to sort out all my posting schedules..I guess it will safe to say this will go up 7pm my time..I dont know..I hate having to think I'm thinking for "My Lady" everyday..she sure is getting worse...but still going strong.

See you tomorrow..

Hi Chrissy,
I'm back from being almost a week on a hobby fair giving workshops, therefore I haven't been around lately. What a lovely fall card you have made, I love it. Sweet image too. Here in Belgium we are officially in the fall season now but we have just had some very lovely days 'Indian summer' it's called. Very nice. Hope all is well with you big hugs, love Veerle xxx

It never gets old thinking how fun it would be to craft with you. Watching you put all these elements together, helping you eat chocolates for the sake of a gorgeous would be rough, but I'd do it just for you!
Absolutely love your Autumn offerings on this one Chrissy. Sorry to hear about your Lady. You are such a sweet soul to do what you do and have to endure the sadness that sometimes goes with it. I know she appreciates you.
P.s. I hate daylight savings! Screws with my sleep pattern so much.
