Feeling a little autumnal!

Oh my goodness! Have you noticed anything different about my blog? I'm so happy - I've gained a shiny new badge in the side bar! The wonderful ladies at Sweet Sketch Wednesday have awarded me with their top three badge for last week's spooky cupcake card - thank you ladies! Its always a pleasure to use Arlana's fab sketches each week, and I love stopping by all the wonderful DT blogs to see what they've been up to. I've had a rather stressful evening and it was so nice to come home and find this lovely surprise - it made my evening!

Without further ado here is this week's card for the new Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge:


I've actually turned the sketch on it's side...I hope thats ok! In the original sketch the flower is on the righthand side....take a peek at the SSW blog and see all the gorgeous DT cards.

I'm also entering this card in two other challenges - both monthly challenges with an autumnal theme.

Penny Black at Allsorts called for a project featuring colours of autumn, and of course a penny black image. As you know I love these cute little mice, they feature on a lot of my cards at the moment! I also love all the gorgeous colours at the moment, deep and vibrant - reds, oranges, browns and whats left of the greenery!

The other challenge I'd like to enter this into is the monthly Sir Stampalot challenge. This month the theme is Autumn Breezes, Buttons and a Bow. For the autumn breezes I decided to opt for the colours of autumn, I have hidden my button on my flower and one of my mice is wearing a red bow!

Pop along to both the monthly blogs to see all the fab DT cards for some inspiration.

Right, I'm shattered....well, there is nothing new there! Thanks again to the wonderful SSW ladies, I was so chuffed to see my name on your blog!

Thanks for stopping by today,
Wedgie xxx

Hi there

Such a sweet card and a nice take on that sketch.

Another PB image that seems to have evaded me, but it really is so cute, love the row of bunnies with their daisies. And clever whow you have incorporated the bow.

Thank you for sharing with us at Stampalot and Penny Black Challenges and good luck.

Hi Wedgie

You have produced a really cute little card here .. .. I too love the Penny Black mice .. .. my very first Penny Black stamp was a mouse so I think that has something to do with it!! LOL!!

Love how you have used and coloured yours here and the way you have matched the daisies in your image with your button flower. Great touch.

Thank you for playing along with Penny Black at Allsorts this month.

Love Jules xx
