Fall is here!!!

Almost the end of September where has our summer gone? I like the Fall, daytime temperature in SWO is 20 C and the night temperature is usually 6 to 9 degrees Celsius nice and cool for sleeping.. I haven’t put the furnace on at home yet but the cottage is a lot colder due to it being a “summer” cottage. It would be winterized but it’s nice to have a change for the Winter.
I follow House Mouse & Friends Monday Challenge Blog and love to make cards with my favourite rodents so try to do as many as I can, some weeks it just doesn’t work out for me, that being said it’s been  three in a row….Wow.

The challenge at House Mouse & Friends is Monochrome…..I love doing monochromatic cards, they are so easy just find shades of the same colour. I was working on this image for a fall birthday and when the challenge was posted  I thought “perfect” I addend the small flowers for fun. There was a Sunflower challenge and I didn’t bookmark it but I am sure it is over. 
Supplies
Image Sleeping in the sunflower House Mouse Designs 
Dies….SU Apothecary set and Sizzix Flower die.
Cardstock…GP white Crushed Curry, SU dsp and Early expresso for the flower centers.
Accessories…a touch of stickles and ribbon.
I am entering this in the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge there is still time for you to enter it doesn’t end until October 5, midnight EST.
Thanks for visiting today and come back again soon.
Happy Crafting
Barbara
