Hi there everybody out there in blogland, I hope you are all feeling well even though it has been very soggy and cold (well at least here in Nottinghamshire)!  This is a card for the OSAAT challenge and as you can see this one is to do with autumn.  I have enjoyed myself soooo much blending Distress Inks on paper to make the colours for the die cut leaves - naturally I had ink everywhere superbly aided and abetted by the fluffy monster known as Biscuit who jumped onto my desk right in the middle of the blending procedure.  I've mentioned before that he has paws the size of coal shovels!  Needless to say I sent the maestro running after him with a wet wipe!  It was all worth it though, just look at the colours of the autumn leaves below.


7" x 7" Linen Finish White card blank - Anna Marie Designs

Why not join in our challenge this fortnight, you can make anything you like as long as you use the colours of Autumn or for my friends across the pond - Fall.

Lots of hugs to you all and take care in this horrible weather!

Love Suexxx
