Officially Autumn!

Well hello lovely bloggers! In my book it's officially autumn as I'm back from my summer holiday! We- me, husband and Mathilda spent 2 lovely weeks in a cottage (well, converted tractor shed!) on the North Yorkshire moors- fabulous! I've never visited this part of the country before and had no idea how beautiful it is! Mathilda (my Great Dane pup) loved it...fields, pheasants to chase (dead rabbits to play with...yuck!), moors and beaches.. she spent every evening in a comatose heap! (so peaceful for us!)... anyway back to the DT make for Sweet Stampin'. If you haven't already guessed the theme this week is Autumn, we are sponsored by Cuddly Buddly and the Ribbon Girl.
This card isn't at all how it started out to be... I found it really hard to get back into crafting after my break! On the plus side I did use a long neglected Gorguss Girl... and the brads are even older! Thanks so much for taking the time to read this, please pop by the challenge blog to check out the fabulous creations from the rest of the team...  hopefully you'll be inspired to join us this week.
