Autumn or is Summer just late this year?

The hay is cut and baled and yesterday I was picking Sloes ready to make Sloe Gin, so Autumn has officially arrived for me.  Autumn is also the theme for the next Postcard Swaperoo and I am planning to get started on my cards today (amongst lots of other things as usual.......)  The weather is more like summer here at the moment and we are promised 25 c for the next couple of days.  We'd better make the most it though as rumour has it the snow will come in October this year!  I suppose anything is possible with our erratic weather.

Postcard Swaperoo

I've just joined this swap - encouraged by Sheila at Sheila Embroidery Rambles.  Here is the beautiful card I received yesterday from Sheila and here is my effort

The brief was to keep it simple so I had fun playing with some papers that I had decorated some time ago and combining them together with acrylic medium, ink and Goldfinger.

Do come and join us - details here
