Autumn's Colours!

Hello Everyone, I hope your Sunday is going well and that you are enjoying whatever you're doing.

I've not done that much, a bit of a lazy day, but I did manage to spend some time making a card for the current Chocolate Baroque Colour Challenge. Here are the colours to use this time around;
Lovely colours I'm sure you'll agree, and to me they say Autumn, so here is my card;
My Background is made using the Harlequin Tando Mask and Distressed inkes and Creative Expressions Colour Cloud.
CB Autumn Edges coloured with Distressed inks, SB Pine Cones and Leaves dies, a bow made from twine and a little sparkle. The lovely sentiment is from Inkylicious.

I have some more photo's.....but you can look away now lol!!

This is know as Dutchman's leap.

From the Up Helly As Festival, got these from postcards.  I would love to go to this, but it is so popular that accommodation is booked up years in advance, but maybe someday.

Thank you all so much on your lovely comments on my last card and photos, you are so kind.

That's all from me for the moment, so take care everyone and see you soon,
I would like to enter my card into;

I'm here with my DT hat on today Kate and what a lovely card you've made. The stamps that you've used are perfect for Autumn and they frame that beautiful verse perfectly. I like how you've also used Autumn colours on the background that you've created too, and the little twine bow is a great addition. Thank you for being the first to join us in this month's challenge at Fashionable Stamping Challenges. Sandra x

Wonderful use of the CB stamps Kate and the stamping frames the sentiment beautifully, I never tire of seeing the glorious colours of Autumn brought to live on lovely pieces of artwork like this one.

Many thanks for being first in the queue at Fashionable Stamping Challenges.

a gorgeous make - I love these colours - beautiful. Love your photos too. Would love to visit that festival - can you remember the old film the Vikings? Apparently I watched that aged about 3 and broke down crying - apparently when they burned the boat ... don't know how I'd cope lol!!!!
