A new month and a new challenge!!



September is here and in the UK the children go back to school next week , that means I am back to work too.  I have had a fabulous summer and this week things have changed alot at home.  My daughter Francesca moved out on Tuesday, she is going back to Uni to do her teacher training and I am missing her already!!  Tristan has started as an apprentice joiner so he is also back to college one day a week.

A new month means a new challenge at Hero Arts,  I have made this card with Autumn in mind, its been a lovely day here but the evenings are beginning to get a chill in the air and some of the leaves are changing colour.  I am really short of Autumnal stamps so had to make do with the ones I have got.  This card is also a window card so fits two of the challenge requirement's.

I am looking forward to another sunny day tomorrow and hubby is taking me out for a pub lunch, Lovely!!

You are so quick off the mark, and I am feeling the same way, I just love the colour combo this month, thank goodness, I really struggled the last two months! This is again a really gorgeous card Sally and I love how you made a window out of that frame! Your leaves are beautiful! Sorry to hear that the kids are kind of leaving, I still have many years before that happens, but I cannot even bare the thought of it! Hugs, Brenda (Have fun with hubby! Nothing like an English pub lunch!)

You've captured autumn perfectly with this card! I love it.
There definitely is a chill in the air, but I refuse to put the heating on yet. Enjoy your lunch tomorrow! :)x

Sally, I love your card! You really captured the look of autumn leaves - beautifully colored! And once again, there's that frame that we all love! Great idea to use it for the window part of the challenge!
