It's beginning to feel a lot like.......autumn

Well.....it certainly seems to be creeping in round here.....the nights are drawing in.......and decidedly chilly evenings........the apples are all ripe on our trees......blackberry and apple crumbles are being made and frozen....along with apple tray bake [recipe here].
Much as I love the summer for the sun and the flowers......I love the autumn for it's wonderful colours and the beauty of the leaves.......it's the best time of year in the park......don't you just love scrunching through the leaves.......and picking up cones,acorns and conkers?
So a card with an autumnal feel to it......though I'm hoping that the sun hasn't quite emigrated yet!
Managed to squeeze a few more pieces out of my 'Material Girl' papers.....and brought an Anya stamp out of retirement.....finished off with some very layered flowers!
And autumn must be creeping in.....because the autumn challenges are starting.
CraftuCrazy want 'autumn colours and fave embellishments' [definately card candy]........Saturday Challenge,Everybody Art Challenge and Stamp with Fun want 'autumn'.....Craft your Passions want 'flowers'......and Southern Girls want 'layers'.

I always have very mixed feelings about the arrival of fall, but I do love the fall color schemes and yours is lovely!

Very peachy! We don't feel like fall in September - that's the month we tend to get warmer weather.

Our days are starting to get longer now, we have had a few warmish days but still have the odd frost or two at night.

The colours on this card look great on my screen Jacky - another very cute card!

Ginger said...

Yes the days are definitely getting shorter and the mornings cooler, but this week we have had a resurgence of Summer weather and actually are having temperatures well above average.. so it's a treat. BTW the recipe for your apple cake looks very tasty... will need to try :)
