A real mixed bag!

What a mixed bag of mad weather we are having it really can not make its mind up if its warm or cold rainy or sunny! Darn weather! why can't it just rain at night and be sunny during the day is that so much to ask for? I mean its not like I am asking for a mountain to be moved now is it!

Oh well we will just have to make do with this sunny Autumn card instead!
Isn't this image just the cutest
I have coloured with my distress inks and markers
the material flowers were rounded petals until my scissors started snipping at them! thehhee but that was the plan, I have added stickles and also different sized flowers from the paper scraps
I a
lso could not resist doing the back with what was left! 
and I am fairly proud of myself too!
there is noting left to recycle!

Here is what I did with the scraps

see that tiny pile in the top right hand corner that is what was left!

So the Challenges I wanted to play are:
House Mouse Challenge - Autumn or Harvest.
Papertake Weekly - Twisted the sketch.
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes.
Joanna Sheen - So Sweet
