A little autumnal fairy....

Morning Peeps!!

I have a little autumn themed share for today!! I was so inspired by the Bingo challenge on the Lili's Little Fairies blog (I chose the lace, gems and brad line of the bingo...then added a few more bits too...I don't think I have a CAS bone in my body!!!) and the 'A hazy shade of Autumn' challenge over on the Papertake weekly blog , I just had to have a make last night....after I had finished drooling over Paul Hollywood...I mean the  cakes....on  The Great British Bake Off..:) :)

This is one of my fav LOTV stamps, Dandelion Clock, and I love her to bits.I printed out a nice wodge of 'orange october' papers from my Craft The Year Away cd and then coloured her up to match them.

I then decided she looked a bit too neat so I stamped on the Grunge Corners and then embossed the other 2 corners with a sizzix embossing folder and gave it all a good distressing!!! then I added one of the For You sentiment circles too!! The flowers, lace and gems are from my stash.

This little card is sitting in my ETSY  shop just waiting to be bought :) he he he!!

So I have a busy day today!! Mo's little breakfast buddy will be here soon and then its playing and off to school for them both, then I am off for a drive to meet my grandad and fetch his washing!! ooooh I am sooo lucky!!! he he he!!! this will be my job for a couple of weeks now as tomorrow my lovely mum is going in for her spinal surgery. I have to be honest and say I am terrified for her. It was so painful for her last time and if things don't look good when the surgeon goes in he is going to put a metal rod down her spine :(  so if you have any spare cyber hugs tomorrow can you send them my mums way.

Right, cuppa, bloggy womble and then let the day begin!!!
Huge hugs and thank you for popping in on me
