Autumn is finally here!

Happy Tuesday to you I hope you're week is going well so far. Mine has got off to a good start (I think) I'm feeling quite honoured that my sister has asked me to do her wedding invites, favours, table settings etc and I was quite excited until she informed me she was thinking of having the invites all sent out by the end of October at the latest. Now I'm not the speediest crafter so as you can imagine by this stage excitement was wearing off and panic was setting in. Anyhow, if I go a little quiet on here thats what I will be up to as I can't imagine I will have much time to play with anything else until they're all done.
Anyway enough waffling, as Autumn has well and truly arrived and I must admit it has to be my most favourite season what will all the colours and the smell of leaves in the air, lovely, I couldn't resist making an autumnal themed card. The image is from a fab Sugar Nellie set and the leaves and acorns are stamped images too that were also included in the kit (pop over and have a look as I even think the set on offer at the mo) and all I did was stamp them onto coloured card and cut them out.

I decided to make a card and little matching gift box. You know me I love my little sets. Anyway, I got the idea and link from the very talented Jodi at Inked Inspirations pop over and take a little looksie at her blog its fab and its always full of inspiration.

Another little piccie at a different angle and you can just make out that I've decorated the inside of the card aswell.

Last photo I promise and this shows what the little box looks like when opened up and its a really good size too so you would fit quite a decent sized mittful of choccies in there!!!!
If you're still with me at the end of this long post, thank you for taking the time to pop on here and have a little peek its very much appreciated I promise. I'm going to enter my card and box into a couple of challenges:-

Thank you again for sticking with me, have a great evening all.
Take care
