Autumn Days

Hello, and welcome to the Jems' blog hop for September!  This one pretty much caught me on the hop as well, being only the 2nd September - where did the summer go?

I'm not complaining too much, though, because although Christmas is most definitely the most wonderful time of the year (and Andy Williams agrees), Autumn comes a very close second for me.  I love that it's still usually sunny but not sticky, the light is getting lower, which makes colours so much richer... and that back-to-school feeling that makes me all nostalgic even though I never really liked school anyway!  I did like the associated shopping for stationery, mind...

BUT, back to those colours!  Are there any better colours than we get in Autumn?  Every season has its charms, but for me the rich, earthy tones of Autumn take the top prize.  I've tried to incorporate these in my project below.

I've combined the old and the new here - Lovely as a Tree has been in the catalogue since just a couple of years after the Big Bang, I believe, while the little doe is from the brand-new Carols of Christmas set from the Autumn/Winter Catalogue.  I think they go quite well together!  I'm also chuffed to see the return of Kraft 12x12, even if it is only in a mixed pack!

Hope you like it, and if you did (or even if you didn't!) pop along to the next blog and see some more marvellous makes - we've all got really stuck in to these colours!  I think Autumn might be a bit of a favourite all round wink


Lovely background Sarah, it looks beautiful combined with the trees x
