Autumn leaves card

Hi friends, it's looking and feeling a lot like Autumn now
here. Brrr the heating had to go on last night and
 for a while this morning too.
 
 
I am posting another 'Less is More' card once again.
It's a colour theme and.....
 
 
 
"For our Colour challenge this month we have chosen 
Autumn's Bounty
Sounds kinda poetic doesn't it...
so we'd love to see autumnal shades in your cards."




This is what I came up with, not my usual colours,
but I am quite liking these for a change.Pop on over
and look at all the other cards over at 'LIM' too. There
 are some real beauties, so lovely to see all the autumn
 colours and leaves too.



ps. So busy yesterday with family birthday celebrations,
our son's 40th this time! The third one this year in our
 family. As usual they all came to us so I am still
 recovering!

The parties have become more frenetic lately, serving/
moving food around two crazy running toddlers and a
 crawling baby arghhh!

Phew that's the last party until Xmas, so I hope for a
bit of relaxation and card making now ;)



I will show you the teeshirts I designed for hubby in
 another post as it will be very photo heavy as you 
can imagine. He was very pleased with them I am
 glad to say! Enjoy your week everyone ;)
