Colours of Autumn

It's time for a new Challenge over at Sweet Stampin', the theme for this fortnight is
 'Colours of Autumn'.

I made a couple of tags using Distress inks, stencils and some Lavinia stamps. I love these colours.

 I'm having a peaceful hour, Marvin is enjoying his bone in the garden - after a battle of wills, he would prefer to chew it on the carpet...but I won!

Here are a few of his holiday photos as promised. There was a wonderful walk just across the road from the cottage- through the park and an orchard and fields and woods- you can see how much he enjoyed it!

At the end of the walk as we came back to the village there was this beautiful surprise- a lovely display of wild flowers beside a little stream.

He had a wonderful time on the beach-
he ran straight into the sea... a big wave went over his head and bowled him right over- he just shook himself and went back for more

Thanks for visiting- don't forget to check out our challenge at Sweet Stampin' and have a great weekend.

Beautiful autumn ornaments. Your colours are just perfect for the season, and I like how you managed to squeeze so many little details onto your tags. I can imagine they'd look wonderful on some bare branches in a vase - like Easter decorations, but more autumn-ish. Thanks for joining the Alphabet challenge.

Hugs, Veronika

Your autumn tags are just gorgeous. The colours are so so beautiful. Oh Marvin has had a great time by the sounds of things. When our wee dog was a pup he hated the water and would even avoid a puddle lol. said...

I love your autumnal tags they are really beautiful with all the lush colours of Autumn and adorable embellishments too. My o my Marvin has got so big but still as cute it looks as if he absolutely loved his holiday too. Take care, Michelle x
