Milton Does Autumn

Hello peeps, hope you are having a good Saturday.  It's very sunny and warm here today (it was 30C in the craft space this morning).  I do love September - except for the wasps!

Thank you to everyone who took the time and trouble to pop over and see my LOTV quandry yesterday and who left me such supportive comments.  It was like receiving a huge bunch of hugs.  In the end, I took the plunge and entered the challenge with those three little letters after my name.  Now I am so nervous I'm chewing my tail!

So, what do I have for you today?  Well, it's a very simply little card for these three challenges:

Totally Gorjuss - A Sketch
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - The Colours Of Autumn
Hanna And Friends - Brown And Another Colour (I went for orange)

And here is my card:


Ingredients for this are:
Stamped Image: Wild Rose Studio - Milton With Sunflower
Colouring Medium: Distress Inks
Papers: Dovecraft Masculine (ancient pack)
Other: Martha Stewart border punch and Sizzlets photo corners die

Sadly I still can't share with you the news from work (as they've done nothing about it yet).  Yesterday, out of a department of nine people, there was just me and our Head of Department (in practical terms, it was just me) and it was a typically fraught Friday.  And on Monday I will be Squirrel-No-Mates as it will just be me on my own.  Thankfully my boss is back on Tuesday.  I may hug her when she walks in.

So, what to do with the rest of my day - we're having a quick Squirrel Stew for dinner tonight (quick because I had a batch ready made in the freezer) so I have a bit more play time (should do this more often me thinks).  I need to finish the birthday card for my darling mum (for next Sunday) and somehow I have to create two other cards without Toad knowing I'm doing them, which will be difficult as he does take an interest in what I do.  May have to suggest he goes for a swim or something.

Oh well, best get cracking, catch you laters!

Hugs, Sxx
