Evening all!

Happy Guy Fawkes night to one and all!, and what a shame it's pouring with rain :o(. Keeping my babies in tonight, My poor Purdy ( my pussy cat ) and Gemma ( my  Scottie ) are not lovers of fireworks and I must say there are some very nasty peeps out there who love to frighten them grrrrrrrr.
I also just want to say a big thank you for all your lovely comments last night, I think I was just being a bit girly lol!
So onto my creation tonight, this gorgeous image is from Sugar Nellie and it's one of their new stamps from Country Cousins range. I have used some lovely papers from BasicGrey "Pyrus" and have used the Sketch from Sparkle Dreams.

This cute image is going into the following Challenges :-
Sparkle Dreams # 2 ~ Fab Sketch with the added element Autumn colours and Leaves

Hi Vicky love your card that image is gorgeous. Also loving your leaves with the buttons and that beautiful ribbon. Hope your animals are all curled up in the warm - I know my cat used to hate fireworks and used to squeeze herself into the smallest of places. Taking the boys to fireworks tomorrow so hope the rain has stopped by then. Have a great weekend. Sarahxx
