CYDA Challenge #32 ~ Autumn

Good Morning All!!

Not quite sure what the weather is going to be like today it's looking ok out the back but rather dismal out the front, trying to see which way it's moving but it doesn't seem to be moving either  At least on the good side I can see the beautiful autumnal colours on the trees, which is always pleasant to see.  Which leads me nicely onto our next challenge over at Craft Your Days Away, which was chosen this time by the lovely Shaz...


My favourite season for colour, the start of cosy nights and hot chocolate...yummm!!

This HM stamp is just perfect for the season, wouldn't it be cute to really see little mice gliding down from the trees like these little fella's.  Though I'm not really a fan of the real things, especially so when Steve went to rescue one from the playful Felix the other day, which promptly made it's escape up Steve's leg on the inside of his jeans, it didn't bother Steve but if it had been me I'd of been running around the garden like a mad  But Steve calmly got the fella out and moved him to safety from the cat.  Anyway continuing with my card, I've coloured it with Promarkers, and the papers are from a selection of Prima scraps.

I've not entered any challenges for a long time, but I've been browsing through this morning and found some challenges to enter for a change...

House Mouse - Falling
Oldie But A Goodie - Forever Autumn
Crafty Creations - Leaves & Autumn Colour Pallette
Simon Says - Anything Goes
Charisma Cardz - Anything Goes
One Stop Craft - No Sentiment
Sweet Stampin - Anything Goes

We do hope you'll be able to join us for the challenge this fortnight.  Don't forget that the clocks 'fall' back an hour in the early hours of tomorrow, an extra hour in bed and darker evenings.

Have a lovely weekend everyone!!
