Autumn Leaves






















Hello, it's Monday again, it comes round so quickly. I hope you’re all OK and have had a lovely weekend.
It is time for another theme over on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge, this time it was our lovely Heathers turn to choose the theme and she chose "Autumn Leaves"  I used HMKR1045 Turning Over A New L:eaf, and decided to do a card that's ideal for a masculine card.  There's some skeleton leaves on there but they  haven't been captured very well on camera.
Of course you must use a House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie to join in.

Thanks for looking, the DT have all made gorgeous cards for your inspiration so hop on over to the HM&F Monday Challenge to see them.

So what do you do with a seven year old who is bored on a Saturday night?
Go in the scrap drawers, get some little bits of card and paper out, that's too small to do much with, yes I save nearly every scrap rather than put it in the bin.  And give them a butterfly punch, and an empty tub.  Bobby sat for ages punching away at my desk, and doing an awful lot of swivelling too, I kept thinking he'll break my chair any minute.  So  now I have lots of little butterflies to use to embellish my cards, and he punched a lot of white ones that I'll be able to ink.  So now every time I use one of those little butterflies they'll be that little bit more love gone into my card.
