Embracing Autumn!

Well, here in the UK there can be no doubt that Summer is over and Autumn is upon us. We have had loads of rain, high winds and it has definitely gotten a bit chilly at times over the last week or so!

But one thing I certainly do love in Autumn is to watch the leaves turn and the beautiful colours that are all around us when this happens.

we have a lot of trees where I live so, when I look out of my window I see shades of red, gold and orange all around and it really gives me a moment of wonder.

And that's one of the reasons why I love the Nitwits papers that I used for this card. They are from the Go Nuts set, and they are a gorgeous combination of Autumn and Halloween type colours, which feature a lot in my crafting at this time of year.

I have had some real fun colouring in this gorgeous Besties stamp with my pro markers, matching the colours to the papers…and I even managed to add in some bling in the form of glitter glue and pearl paints.  :-)

So there are some lovely challenges this week so here are the ones I would like to enter with this card:

Thanks for stopping by today :-)
