Autumn colours at Lexi's Creations

Morning friends, happy September!!!!
It's coming up to my favourite months of the year.....I love Autumn & Winter......the dark nights, the dark mornings, wearing boots, scarves & huge woolly jumpers. Filling the slow cooker with stew, Halloween, the smell of Bonfire night, crunchy golden leaves! Watching my Nic play rugby on cold frosty, I could go on & on & on...........!!
 So bearing that in mind the new challenge over at Lexi's Creations where the theme is
"Autumn Colours" is right up my street!
We have the fabulous My Heart Pieces sponsoring us this time with a prize of  3 digis, you have until
September 15th to play and you can make any craft item you like just so long as it 
fits the theme!

As usual, you can see some fantastic inspiration from my lovely teamies over on the main
challenge pop over, you won't be disappointed!
I used the sugar & spice paper & chipboard flowers from Dovecraft for my card, some chocolate
 brown card, a cream doily edged with walnut ink, some gingham ribbon,  & that's it!
That's it from me for today......going to get the school uniforms ironed......don't know who's more
excited - me or the kids!
Hope to see you at Lexi's!
