Fall Is In The Air...

Good Morning friends...

Here we are on the last day of November - it does n't seem possible!  The month has flown by far too fast!  Expect the next one will too which is scary!

I am here with a bit of fun today.  My card is for a My Besties UK extra post - not a challenge but a bit of fun for you all.  

All you need to do is pop to My Besties UK and leave a comment for the design team to be in with a chance to win one of the images used in today's post.
To make my card I have used Sherri Baldy's gorgeous digi
This lovely image is available from 

I have gone for a simple layout because I wanted this cutie with her lovely poem to be 
'the main event'.  I have coloured her with Copics, used a die cut frame with Lili of the Valley papers and added some leaves and buttons.  Finally I added bit of shimmer with some gold Stickles.

Following my lovely day colouring with Faye last week, I decided to give purple hair a try.  More practice required I think but somehow it suits this Fall Princess!

And now it's December...where did November go to?!
I think my fave thing about Autumn/Winter is the beautiful colours of the landscape around and your card captures that so beautifully. I'm loving the purple hair...I had purple hair once in uni!
Using the poem and image as the focal point for your lovely CAS design is such a wonderful idea :-)
Big hugs, Kat xx
