It feels like Autumn is coming.....

Hi everyone.

Are those of you in the UK starting to notice a chill in the air of an evening...even on the sunniest day? Well I certainly am, and one thing is for sure, summer is over and autumn is coming!

Now I am sure that I am not alone in loving autumn as a season  - the bright crisp mornings, the beautiful colours.......... I just hope it does turn out that way, rather than cold, grey and damp

So, in honour of the season, here is my first autumnal card, for this weeks Cute Card Thursday challenge, which is 'AnythingGoes'.

I think this little lady is pretty cute, don't you? She comes from the Octavia range over at Polkadoodles, where you can buy her as a digital image.

I coloured her with my Spectrum Noir pens and left it a bit 'messy' as I really wanted her to have a windswept look......hope that idea worked!

I have used some lovely autumnal backing papers which are ones that I had previously printed, and kept in my stash.  I wish I could remember where they were from!!

Anyway, thanks for coming to visit me today, and I hope you will come and join us over at Cute Card Thursday too.
