The Craft Garden - Autumnal!! xxx

Hi everyone

Yippee I'm still sunning my wee self in Mexico so another scheduled post!

Well its the start of another month, which means its The Craft Gardens monthly challenge and this time wee have a wee picture inspiration to get all your crafts brains buzzing!

We want to see Autumnal colours and creations from you all! With Autumn just beginning its the perfect Challenge to get you in the mood for Fall! I've made a lil card using the utterly fabulous BLOOMS from The Craft Garden shop and my delish Prima Madeline papers

Again I couldn't get a great pick of the wee quote, doesn't help with the script on the paper I think! It says

"Sing like no-one is listening
Love like you've never been hurt
Dance like nobody's watching
And live like its heaven on Earth"

Hope you will join us this month and make a wee Autumnal creation and go "Vintage" style with the picture inspiration!
