Autumn is here

Good morning peeps, I hope you are all hunky dory. Lovely and cool here this morning as we had torrential rain through the night and everything is refreshed.

This week on Flutter By Wednesday is another free week so just create a card with a Butterfly or Fairy and upload with a direct link to Mr. Linky and if you upload to SCS or PCP please use the keyword, FBW.
Dottie´s World, Crafty Cardmakers and Crafty Calendar have all set the theme of Autumn which are colours I never use so a real challenge in itself for me and can you believe these are now my favourite colours.


I have coloured Madison, with my copics, just getting the feel of them now. Main dp is from KCo, prima flowers, spacers , brads, charm and braid are from my stash and I had fun making my wee dangly, yep that wire sure is useful!
Be sure to stop by my teamies on FBW Ann, Cassie, Chris, Christine, Danni,Harriet, Heather, Jodi, Kristie, Kim, Lelia, Michelle, Nancy, Stef, and Taylor as their cards are always so inspirational.
