It's a beautiful morning...

Mmmmm, the sun is shining, the air is crisp, a blanket of gold lies on the ground... seriously, it doesn't get much better than this. Oh wait, yes it does... I have today off too. Can you say perfect day? I can! :)

Remember that you still have until tonight to get entered into this first Sweet November candy. The winner will be announced on tomorrow's post and the second week of candy will start on Monday... too fun!

So you may notice a bit of a change up with my card today, I've never used any of the Bee Crafty images before but I gotta say... they were pretty fun to color. :) You see, I recently swapped some stamped images with the very sweet Alice and these were two of the images she sent me. I was inspired to put the two together right away and the rest of the card came together super quick. In fact the papers are left overs of the scraps I used on my Fairy Eva card from earlier this week... what can I say, they were still sitting on the table. But how perfect are they? Those little birdies in the paper are almost a perfect match to the stamped bird... love it when that happens!
Thank you Alice for widening my stamping world just that much more, I can't wait to play with the other images you sent! :)

And now I thought I would put a call out to anyone who has the elusive limited edition Elf Anya stamp from last year... if you would like to swap some stamped images of her with me for any stamped images I have I would be eternally grateful. Just shoot me an email at
I promise to make it worth your while! ;)
Ok, I'm off to enjoy the great outdoors... raking leaves LOL!

I've just woken up to a lovely mild (not HOT!!) Sunday morning and popped on for a quick look before I left for church.

You're card put a smile on my face. Happy, happy, happy. Love the images (will have to take a peek at the site - never heard of them before either) and the colours and combos - perfect.

Enjoy your weekend off.
