The colours of autumn

Autumn is such a beautiful season for colours , the leaves changing and some lovely autumn flowers is the garden , my favourite plant is sedum , with its many varied colours , always a welcome Autumn sight.

My card today uses another tattered lace die , yes I am addicted to them . I've used the charisma country meadow and used the matching images from the mcs cd rom . We may think of roses as being summer plants but many happily flower in autumn . The sentiment with matching dies is from Just Right ,friend antique labels one.

challenges entered :
allsorts : feels like autumn (autumn colours)
get creative : autumn / fall (autumn colours)
fab n funky : for a friend (stamped sentiment)
craft rocket : something begining with "F" (flowers)

still achy today , but not as bad , sore throat too , must be a cold as my hubby is feeling the same and he is off work , most unlike him . I'm having a quiet day spent mostly in my craftroom as my Tattered lace subscription magazine has just been delivered   , so not all bad.    
enjoy your day . jane x

Wilma with rose

Afternoon crafter's , hope your well . Today I've got a real cutie to show you . One of my old Magnolia stamps , Wilma with rose , she reminds me of a young version of my very old toy poodle Hudson .
The papers are from a 12x12 pad from the Works , called pretty red classics, a bargain at £3 for 24 , double sided sheets , they are excellent quality too .
My die cut sentiment is from first edition . The fancy border die is from spellbinders and the heart circle is from sweet dixie .
I've used gold mirri card and coloured stamp in with promarkers . I stamped the image with rich cocoa memento ink .

 challenges entered :

well the winds forecast here last night where not too bad , I feel so sorry for the people in other countries suffering terrible weather , people losing their homes and even their lives . My son showed us a clip from sky news , a ladies home had been destroyed , all her possessions gone and then suddenly her little dog appeared out of the rubble , she was over joyed and said one of her prayers had been answered . 
stay safe and happy crafting . jane x
