An Autumn Day

Time is flying by again. it's Tuesday already and time to (1) go to the dentist again, (2) do a LITTLE bit of H*******k before I forget the colour of the furniture and (3) enjoy the rest of the day. Yesterday started out really chilly, when I woke up the trees were all shrouded in mist, and as the sun rose, the mist started to dissolve and the leaves were all sparkling like diamonds, a wonderful sight, even though the picture does not really do it justice:
I spent the day with my friend Inge, and we did the same as always - eating, coffee drinking, playing cards and chatting, a nice, relaxing day. I make Inge a calendar page each month, and this is October:
And I want to show you a LO I made. I took the photo of the clocks some time back, and then digitally altered it in Photoshop. It has been printed onto vellum, so as not to completely obscure the background paper from K & Co. The2 fairy images are from LaBlanche, and the frame has been stamped onto acetate using Stazon brown. The key and keyhole are from My Tattered angels, and the sentiments from K & Co. *Time* has also been computer generated and printed onto acetate. I am entering this LO into the *Just For Fun Challenge* which this week is anything but a card.
So, that was enough for today, the dentist is waiting for me....Have a great day you all, take care, and thanks a million for visiting!

  1. This months calendar .. WOW. The colours just pop and of course, love the theme. Glad you had a nice day out yesterday with Inge. I must agree, the dentist appointment has come around all too quickly ... however, that also means all this will soon be a thing of the past. Take care .. enjoy the autumn you are having. hugs, Donna
