Autumn Colours

The days are still flying by at a rate of knots here.  It's mid October and in a blink we'll all be saying it's Christmas.  For now, let's celebrate the season we're in.  After a cold and misty start yesterday, the day improved and we had a lovely sunny afternoon.  Perfect for a garden tidy.

Before I get onto that though I must tell you about the latest challenge over at Diva's by Design, it's,

Autumn Colours

And they are in all their glory at the moment!

So, my card uses a fantastic digi by From The Heart, and some LOTV paper & kraft.


Colouring is by Promarkers and then the card is finished off with ribbon, buttons and a Pippa butterfly.

Sponsoring this weeks Diva's challenge is the wonderful Iva Nova Chest, who are offering the lucky winner a "Charming" prize!
