Autumn Meeces

It seems such a long time since l have been a regular blogger and l apologise in advance for not being a faithful follower - summer holidays happened then my inspiration took off somewhere and then well - l just could not be bothered.  The dark night are almost upon us so l will hibernate in my craft room.
I went to the Papercraft show at Harrogate with my grandaughter yesterday and bought a few bits and pieces, the show seemed quieter this time but we still managed to stay most of the day. My grandaughter is 9 and is a 'crafter in training' she thoroughly enjoyed the show and was thrilled when she got her money out to pay for card blanks on Anna Maries stand and the chap asked her if they were for her and told her she could have them free .... perhaps she should have made my purchases for me lol.

So on with the card - this is with one of the House Mouse stamps l bought from my lovely friend Angie - thanks Angie, l hope you like what l have done with the stamp.  I am going to send this one to my niece who is  living and working in Jamaica, she is missing the seasons and autumn is her favourite.
