So....last week we had autumn and this week l have jumped a season to winter, l started out by heat embossing the tree in white then played around with my inks. Finally stamping the deer, birds, foliage and sentiment. I wanted to do my moon a bit different so went for a reddish colour. We get the most amazing night skies here and as l live out in the country the stars are just fantastic.

I know one or two of you may be wondering what has this to do with autumn..... Acorns are plentiful and dropping and the beautiful leaves are changing colour which l have tried to achieve here. I spent a good few hours colouring and blending this with my neglected prisma pencils and have decided not to make a card with it but will look for a frame to put in the childrens room.

Continuing with my quest to get my christmas cards done early this year l went for this sweet polar bear stamp from LOTV, the gorgeous sentiment is from the new christmas release which l bought on pre release along with a few other PB's that just happened to fall in my basket from Crafts U Love, l can see lots of use from the set this year.


As l prepare this post l am looking out on the garden and it definately looks like autumn has arrived. The rowan tree is full of red berries and the leaves are turning the most beautiful golden /orange shades. I have managed to collect quite a few seed heads to store ready for next year. I have decided to grow more flowers for cutting in the veg garden next year and cut back on the veg. The onions have been a disaster again this year so will free up that space.

Hope to see you over on the challenge x Susan x
