I love this image so much, and I love colouring it. It is the new challenge for this month October over at Sir Stampalot. The theme is Autumn Breezes, Buttons And Bows. So I created this easel card, I used wooden buttons to go with the Autumn feel, and my Distress Inks got really good usage for this one. I have added stickles along the leaves, rain drops, ground and branch to make it look like rain, but as always it isn't showing very much on the photo.

The prize for this month is:-

I would like to enter this into the following challenges:-

1. Stamptacular Sunday - challenge # 78 - Seasons Change, Fall Colours

2. Simon Says Stamp - It's Autumn

3. ABC Challenge - E is for Easel card

4. Craftalicious - challenge 9 - Autumn Colours

5. Stampin For The Weekend - challenge 48

I have been struggling this last couple of weeks, last week I started with a bad back and was put on 4 lots of tablets, some very strong that made me terribly drowsy, I hate that feeling and it did make it hard to blog. Then Monday I woke up with a bit of a sore throat, by the afternoon I couldn't even swallow water, I managed to get in at the doctors and he said I had severe tonsilitis, they have even bled, which I didn't know could happen. Yesterday my 4 year old Bobby started with a virus which includes a sore throat, so it's probably from me, but he's at home with me and no school, and were giving each other lots of warm cuddles.

But hopefully i'm on the mend now, but feel I have missed so much in blogland and If I have done anything on the computer over this time it has been mainly DT Work. So a big apology for not visiting you and hopefully i'll back into the swing of things shortly.
Thank you for being so understanding and for all your well wishes.
