The nights are fair drawing in ...

Hi Bloggers,

Well, we are now mid October and as we say in my little part of the world - "The nights are fair drawing in".  It is now dark before 7pm and when the clocks change at the end of the month, the nights are going to be longer than the days.  Roll on the spring, is all I can say!

With this thought in mind, I've created a fun little hanging for two challenges ...


Anything But a Card - Challenge 4 - Fall or Halloween or Fall Colours
Fashionable Stamping Challenges - Challenge 32 - Shades of Autumn/Fall




The background is made with distress inks. Autumn leaf and owl stamps are Stampin Up, I used alphabet peg stamps for the sentiment, all inked in Verafine Vintage Sepia. Tim Holtz diecut leaves, and some sparkly autumn ribbon to finish.

Thanks for coming to visit. Time for lunch now but first I need to get my teenage son out of his bed!!

See you soon.

Suze xx

So cute and a lovely mix of colours. I haven't heard that saying for a while. It was well used at this time of year when I was growing up in Peterhead!

Such a cute image Suze! Love the autumnal colours you've used. The ribbon is an inspired finishing touch. Those Tim leaves look fab - I have that die but it's so small and fiddly that it doesn't come out very often - well done you!
So glad you shared your project at Anything But A Card.

This is lovely! Those Stampin' Up background leaves are really fun, and the diecut leaves add a lot of texture! I love the coppery leaves on the cloth (I think it's cloth?) strip, too.
