Autumn days

Hi friends, I hope you're all having a good week so far - I'm just adoring this wonderful weather we're having here in England at the moment. Isn't it fabulous after a mediocre summer to enjoy this 'Indian Summer' of early autumn - I love seeing the leaves turning colour and starting to fall, the conkers on the ground and all the apples in the orchards.

On Tuesdays I volunteer at my local Riding for the Disabled Centre and today it was so lovely to take some of the rides out into the fields and enjoy the warm but crisp autumn air.

For last week's Inspiration and Themes Challenge on In Love With Stamping I chose a cake from Martha Stewart:

And here's my card based on it, I think there's something quite autumnal about it :)

Recipe: (Stampin Up unless otherwise stated)

Stamps - Touch of Nature
Card - Whisper White/Chocolate Chip/So Saffron/Tea and Crumpets DSP
Other - Copic Sketch markers/Scallop Edge punch/Crafter's Tool Kit/Cuttlebug Swiss Dots Embossing Folder

Thanks for visiting today - and I hope you're enjoying these autumn days too!
