Happy Sunday!

Oh boy, it's grim out there today!!  Autumn is definitely upon us.  There is a very soggy and unnattractive carpet of dead leaves all over my driveway but I'm afraid it's way too wet out there to go and gather them up at the moment.  Will this rain ever stop!!

However, Autumn is definitely my most favourite season of them all - each of the seasons has it's own virtues and I love all of them for their own, but Autumn is somehow more special.  It has a magic about it with it's richness of colours and spicy, comforting smells, the crunching of leaves and snapping of twigs and the crackling of bonfires;   I carry nostalgic and romantic memories of Autumn in my childhood around with me all year long and it feels like a big warm hug any time of year.  This is the time of year that I go mad with home-made soups and crusty bread, and I love to make apple charlotte which is something that just doesn't seem to work at any other time of year!

Here are some of my creations for this week. First of all I wanted to show this card which was made using one of Teri's Delicious Doodles - as soon as I saw the image I just swooned!  I LOVE The Green Man, and I bought the image immediately and yesterday I printed out another one and made this card with it.
Check out that quote - isn't is just the most gorgeous quote!!  I found it on the web yesterday and thought it was perfect for this card.

Next up is a Christmas card I made, again using one of Teri's gorgeous images (by the way, they're all available for you to own too!!!!)

Awwww.......  as a Westie 'mum' I couldn't resist this gorgeous little fellow!  But if you're not a Westie person, Teri has lots of alternative cuties in her Christmas Stockings - go see!!

Finally, I'm showing my Keep it Simple offering for this week where the theme is Thank You.  And nothing could be more simple than this card:

The whole thing was made using my Scrapbook Artist kit with a digi scrap kit that I bought from The Creative Cottage - these kits are beautiful and very easy to use.  I printed out two copies and cut out the butterfly on the second image to use as decoupage giving the card a little dimension.

That's my lot for now.  Hope to be back soon!  In the meantime, thank you for stopping by and have a great week ahead! :o) xxx
