The Seasons are Rolling by.......................................

Good morning to you all,
Now I was up really early this morning, not sure why, the body just sort of made me.  Matt has gone to work and from there is going to his fishing match, I do hope he catches loads.

before I move on I would like to thank the ladies at "Sparkles Forum Challenges" for selecting one of my creations for a top three, THANK YOU ladies :)

Yesterday felt a little weird, as I had nothing to post or link!!! but I am enjoying my DT time out, the new role is going well, I think I can see the end of  the tunnel on the pile up of work, it is far in the distance, but a little blue sky is showing through, and I am optimistic that in a couple of months, things will be back to normal :)

Today is looking promising so far the sun is out and the rays are shining into my office, making it feel really warm.  

It is that time, to announce the new challenge at the 

But before we move on, I hope you have already seen the DT call for the Secret Crafter, but if you have not please pop over - you will see the call in the right hand side bar at the top

We are looking for 5 new Design Team Members.  The DT call will close 30th September.

The theme this week has been chosen by the wonderfully talented Bridget

The Colours of Autumn

now although the challenge did not really cause me a problem, what I created did, and although others have said how lovely it is, some how it is not sitting quite right with me, not sure why?  You see I have used one of my favourite critter stamps, maybe it is the papers I have used or the lace, just not sure, but here it is anyway
The base papers are a mustard/yellow, the dp are K & Co, one of my very old 6 x 6 packs but the colours were in the Autumnal theme. I added some lace, now you see looking at it again, did I do this because I think the space needed it or was I trying to hide the papers? The image of course is House Mouse and coloured in copics, now this was a very hard one to colour, so much detail, but loved colouring it.  I added some liquid pearls and could not miss the floral spray out, and there you have it.

Please don't forget to pop over and see what my other fabulous teamies have created.

I would like to welcome all my new followers and wish you all well in the 400 follower candy.   For those of you that have not yet entered the 400 follower candy you can do so here

I still cannot believe I am at 472 followers, you guys are all amazing thank you,  if you are already follow me please don't forget to put your name in the hat :)

As always and very importantly I would like to say thank you to all my wonderful visitors who take the time to leave such inspirational comments on my blog, allowing me to hop back over to see your own beautiful work. THANK YOU!!
