Harvest Time

Can you believe it, September almost been and gone already, the nights are getting darker quicker and the weather is turning that bit colder - it's Autumn already and heading fast towards Winter!

Today's challenge from Ooh La La, with an Autumn feel is

Harvest Time

Which to me means fruits on the harvest table!  And those fruits just happen to be apples baked in a pie - no four and twenty blackbirds though, just a few butterfly!

It's never a good idea to leave DT work till the last minute as things have a habit of going wrong and what seems like a reasonable plan fails in every respect!  Think my report card this week will read, "Could do better!"

More of my ramblings in a minute, but first the latest challenge over at MAWTT set by Christine, and to feature a sentiment as the focal point - no stamped pics - just a verse! 

So my card uses one of the great Visual Image sentiment stamps I won at the Stamping Sensations Challenge a couple of months back, (thanks again), and combines white and ivory card and several of my favourite dies.

As for the colour of the card - yeah...white and ivory, not beige, and certainly not pink!  Oh the joys of night photography with a failing battery!

Happily Ever After

Today's card was for friends who married this summer, but it's also for the latest Ooh La La Challenge which has been set this time by Wynn as;

Happily Ever After

Now I've used this image before, from the freebie section on the Ooh La La site, and I've combined it with the papers from the Love file on the Shawn Jenkin's CD to make this wedding card.
