Dream Valley Challenge 66 - Autumn


Well it's all happening now, isn't it? The nights are drawing in, I've dug out my cosy pj's and I've even started sorting through that hat-scarf-and-glove box.....

AUTUMN is on it's way!

I've had a really lovely summer this year, despite everything with my poor old hip (which, I'm very happy to say, is now almost better....!) but there's something really comforting about Autumn. Everything is a bit cosy and snuggly. Yummy stews and casseroles after coming in from the cold. Hot chocolate at bedtime. And I love the beautiful colours of the leaves. Every year we go hunting for conkers and pine cones with the boys. I'm looking forward to this year's trip :-)

Anyway, you may have guessed that this card has an Autumn theme for Dream Valley's latest challenge!

This card is for my lovely Father in law whose birthday it is today. I've used a gorgeous pic from one of LOTV's art pads - Vintage Boys.....

And I used one of their lovely Country Gent paper pads too - both bought on my recent shopping trip to Leeds.... :-)

A bit of ribbon, some card candi and a bit of raffia to make the sheaf of wheat and hey presto!

Please pop over to Dream Valley to find out what the rest of the DT have made!

Love 'n' hugs,

This is lovely Mel. I love the image - they are so handy those art pads aren't they.
The papers and design are gorgeous.
Hugs Sharon. x
