... so what we would like to see is anything on your card that reminds you of autumn .. whether it's an image, shapes or just autumnal colours. As always, the only rule is that we need to see at least one Penny Black stamp or sticker on your creation.
This week we have an absolutely fantastic prize ... our own dear Carole has donated this gorgeous stamp from the latest PB Christmas 2009 range - "Hand mailed" - how cute is that? You've got to be in it to win it, so we look forward to seeing your creations.
Here's my card for this week ... I treated myself to a couple of new Daisy Bucket papers in autumnal colours, and then I couldn't resist inking up this cute li'l mouse swinging from a branch (first time I've inked him up - naughty!!) as I thought the flowers complimented the flowers on the paper. This card is very different from my usual colour palette, but I kinda like it (and of course it allowed me to buy some paper and flowers so I'm more geared up for future autumn cards lol!)
Indeed, life being short and all that, I'd also like to enter this card for 2 other challenges that have an autumn theme this week .. namely the new Crafty Calendar Challenge (where I have also included the optional extra of plants and vegetation) and One Stop Craft Challenge #49.
