Autumnal Colours

I took this snap in my village this morning as the trees are looking so pretty at the moment.

Browsing through the challenge blogs this afternoon I found that this week's theme at Cupcake Challenge is 'Thank you in Autumnal Colours', so I just had to share my photo.

My CAS card was a very quick make with some ScribbleScrabble paper bought at a Craft Barn sale, and a reduced price (£1) Inca flower stamp. The sentiment is by Stampin Up. I wondered afterwards if it is too CAS and deliberated about adding something but eventually decided to quit while I was ahead.

It looks like I will be going to the NEC on Friday, I've never been to a 'proper' Craft Show before so really looking forward to it. Wonder how much I will come home with?

  1. This is lovely Fiona, really elegant. I love your photo. We've had a gorgeous day in Kent today and its so pretty with the sun shines on all those autumn colours. Have a lovely time at the NEC. I've never been but I've heard is fabulous. I should probably start saving now for next year!

  2. Hi Fiona, I've just followed you from The Craft Barn site. I really love your card it is so fresh & elegant - the recipient will be thrilled with it. TFS.

  3. I think this is a fantastic clean simple card, the perfect amount of embellishments were used!

  4. Gorgeous card Fiona and I really love your CAS look cards (something I can never quite do).
    Beautiful photo too. My hubby and I went to Guildford yesterday with my younger daughter as it was my birthday and I admired the tree colours all the way there in the country lanes. This really is my favourite time of year.
    Have a lovely time at the NEC, I'm green here as I'd love to go but it's too far to go in one day.
    Can't wait to see what you come back with.

  5. Thank you for joining us at Cupcake Craft this week Fiona ! Your card is beautiful and so elegant ! Love it ! Good luck ! Smiles from Catherine + a hug to your sweet Prue !

  6. Lovely photo Fiona, Grange Road I think, and I agree the trees are looking beautiful.

    The card is great as always.

    You will come home with quite a bit i'm sure, and Sue's beautiful cat Sophie will inspect it all when we get home.

  7. such a pretty card and beautiful fall colours.
    The leaves are nearly all gone here.. We'll have snow before we know it

  8. Wow! What a beautiful, rich autumn card. It's lovely. I love the flower. Thanks so much for playing at Cupcake this week. x

  9. Fabulous card Fiona, I love the simple design and the splash of orange from the pretty flower! :) Love, Georgia xx
