Autumn is most definitely my favourite time of year, and as there are a couple of autumn themed challenges at the moment, I just couldn't resist!

I really love tree stamps and this one is by Penny Black. I stamped it in brown Stazon and have just added a few orange gems for a bit of sparkle.

I shall be entering my card into the Crafty Calender Challenge, a brand new challenge blog run by my lovely bloggy buddy Georgia who is only 13 years old and makes the most amazing cards, and the theme for this month is hop on over and join in the fun!

There is another autumnal challenge at Penny Black Saturday Challenge, so I will be entering my card into this challenge as well!

Well I'm just about recovered from my over indulgence last night...I didn't have any Thornton's this week for watching X Factor and Strictly, so I got some Haagen Darz out instead. I put the tub on my lap and kinda scooped a bit out now and again as it melted. Before I knew what had happened, half a tub had disappeared and I ended up feeling pretty ill afterwards as a result!

So no ice cream for me for the next round of X factor tonight....believe that and you'll believe anything lol.
