1 Card 2 challenges

Morning Ladies, quite a lovely Autumn morning here in Edinburgh, just that crisp Air, the kind that is my favourite, all the beautiful colours on the trees, a hint of blue sky, Gorgeous, makes you glad to be alive, even when you are full of the did'nt go away just kept coming and now it has settled on my chest. Anyway enough off that we had a superb day yesterday with the kids from Dundee, I met my step-granddaughter Stevie for the 1st time, she was quite shy, but what a beautiful girl, and a great addition to our family, our fireworks were not too good, so I think Brian is going to go back to Morrison's today and complain, not one of them did what it was supposed to do, but young John laughed at the colours and kept us amused.  The homemade Soup and Dumpling was perfect for keeping everyone warm, mmmm dumpling still left, I think I can hear it calling, "eat me" LOL.....

This card is for 2 challenges, 1st I followed the Sketch given by Chris at Incy Wincy Designs, such a great sketch to use, I teamed it up with the challenge from Passion for Promarkers WK24 who wanted us to use the colours GRASS & CANARY, nice colours to use at this time off year and a wee change, I used my Tilda with kitten isn't she cute.  Promarkers have £10 to spend at Joanna Sheen's on-line store, now that would be a great prize to win.

I will be back with another challenge later on today, I have been busy in my shed, a couple of things you won't see until later in the week, but I have had fun, trying out different things, suffice to say, I am now wanting a wee sink in my shed........LOL.  Brian is going demented to the point that he is looking for somewhere in my house for me to use again......I have a wee toilet downstairs that I use because I struggle with the stairs, and he is saying we could get rid off that and make a craft room, now girls if we were to sell this house, do you think Craft Room/Downstairs Toilet.......?

Hi Avril Ann,
Great card and love the colour combo. Tilda is so sweet in that get up. You're right it's a gorgeous morning in this neck of the woods - the frost on the grass first thing and the blue sky and sunshine - Brilliant.
