Colours of Autumn

Good morning to you!  I just couldn't sleep last night so I have been up since 4!! Showered, dressed, bed made and two loads of washing done and its not even 7 lol!!  In case you're wondering if I made the bed with Dave in it, he's lying in the conservatory with the cat!!! Anyway the reason I am here is to announce that we have a new challenge starting at Crafty Sentiments and the theme this week is to use the Colours of Autumn!  Here is my make:

I have used sweet Petal Fairy available from Crafty Sentiments here.  I coloured her with my Copics adding some Art Institute Fine Glitter to her wings.  I cut the image out using Dienamics Pierced Rectangle Stax and matted onto some Kraft and then added a fine line of the Art Institute Glitter around the edge.  The papers are Raspberry Road "Autumn Thyme".  The mat around the central paper is made using Cheery Lynn Mini Pearl Square Doily die and the Sunflower is also a Cheery Lynn die with a Marianne die for the leaves.  The sentiment is Waltzingmouse and I used Spellbinders Labels 18 to cut it out.  I coloured the pearls with my Copics to match.

We have a fabulous prize this week for the lucky winner:

Please head over to the Crafty Sentiments blog to see all the details and the brilliant work by the rest of the DT.

Challenges I would like to enter:

Bearly Mine - Autumnal Colours
Creatalicious - Flower Power
Dies R Us - Fall Festival
Mema's Crafts - Fall Colours
Sparkles - Things With Wings
2 Cute Ink - Fall
Bunny Zoes - Lace

Gorgeous card Suzie, love the papers you have used.

Made me laugh you saying your hubby asleep on the sofa with the cat, that's where mine sleeps every night until he wakes in morning about 2 and gets to bed lol! I used to wake him up before I went to bed but have given up on that so now just leave him!!! You will no doubt feel very tired by this evening.

Love & Hugs

These are great, understated autumn colours! I love the muted look of it. Plaid always looks fab on a card and your square dies look good.

Perfect colouring as always...Hope you can catch a nap later...4 am is early!
