Autumn/Fall Card Sending Smiles

Good afternoon everyone. Sorry I have not posted this week but I have been having problems with my back & legs.

Yesterday was the start of the new Crafty Calendar Challenge but as yet I have not been able to make anything for it however hopefully within the next couple of days I will have a project up for you. The challenge is 'Spooky' and you really don't want to miss out as we are celebrating our 2nd birthday with lots and lots of sponsors.

Now I thought I would give you something to look at whilst I get back to normal (if that is possible lol). I have never made a real Autumn/Fall card before but whilst talking to my friend who has been living in Australia for almost three years now she said the thing she misses the most about our weather is the tree's changing colour and walking through all the crunchy leaves. 

So I designed this mainly in Design Studio last week but added the pumpkins from Cuttin' Up With Class which was cut in SCAL 2. As I couldn't cut this, my hubby did it for me, then I managed to ink all the pieces yesterday whilst sitting up in bed (not a good idea), then I put it together this morning with a little help from hubby holding and passing me things.
