Hello to everyone!! Hope is all well with you today. I can honestly say that I had one great weekend. My grandson Hayden spent the whole weekend here. We played a lot which I'm starting to get old sitting on the floor. We took him school shopping. We have always bought his shoes since he was born. Had some take out food and watched these cartoons that was kind of weird from the ones I watched when I was little. It's Wonderful to be a Grandma!!

Toadstool Printables is our wonderful sponsor this week. Joyce has a great etsy store for you to see with a wide variety of different items. I was lucky that I was allowed to use her printable "Gnomes With Cardinal." Very cute image with the beautiful cardinal and cute little gnomes sitting in leaves. I used a piece of chipboard that has the word "Autumn" so that's what I call this card. Let's have a look;

Here is how I made my card this week. The first thing I did was color the image to see what colors I could use and find paper to match. We had to add a bow and I can honestly tell you that for some reason I just could not make one that looked good. I didn't feel right to just add a bought bow for it. So, I finally made this and put a gold glitter leaf on the middle. Then used many different Autumn flowers that are glittered and put them together with a dark orange leaf. I wanted to put the word Autumn on it but didn't want more white on the card. I was lucky and found this in a tote full of chipboard. Used Items:

Cardboard -- Close To My Heart
Paper -- DCWV
Handmade Bow -- Offrey Ribbon
Glittered Flowers --  Autumn Flowers From My Autumn Stash
Autumn Word Chipboard -- The Paper Studio
Glittered Leaves -- Dress It Up
Colored Markers
Colored Pencils

This card just makes me want fall to come with the colder temperatures and beautiful fall leaves. Hope to see some Glitter and A Bow in our challenge this week. Just hop on over to The Robyn's Fetish Challenge Blog and enter those cards. Have a Lovely Week ahead and see you at the next new challenge.
