Morning!
I hope you’re all ok. I hope you haven’t got your winter jumpers on just yet, but as it’s feeling autumnal outside, I thought I’d say hello to Autumn/Fall with this little card that I’ve posted today over on Make The Day Special Stamp Store too.
It’s using a mix of several sets..

And Love You S’more

And the Into The Woods set

I’ve also used the tiny heart dies from the Hello Baby lawn cuts die set as the ‘leaves’ falling off the tree.
I’ve die cut the letters from the card base, kept the inside parts of the numbers and used acetate behind the card as a base to adhere the insides of those numbers too. It’s one of those cards that’s hard to capture the essence of!

We’ve been scouring on many fronts. I’m a big fan of picking free fruit– and by that, I don’t mean my neighbours apple tree ( should he have one!!)
But ..blackberries!!
They’re one of my favourite fruits and this time of year they’re often in abundance.
Assuming of course, you know where to find them.
I’m scratching my head trying to think where to go in Liverpool and may have a jaunt out with the kids a little later with plastic boxes in hand.
A few years ago we holidayed near a park that had TONS of blackberries and no-one was picking them.
Holiday or not, I collected loads and made blackberry curd, jam and crumble with them.
Why would you turn down free fruit?!!

There was also some flurried scouring going on last week when we were on holiday and my eldest fell over and scraped her knee. We were on the outskirts of Gateshead in a mostly industrial park ( we’d parked there to walk into the centre).
As she got up, after grazing her knee, she could not believe that there was a £10 note lying on the ground.
Bizarre really.
She took it as ‘compensation’ for falling over. The other kids could not believe it was there and spent the next couple of hours with their eyes on the ground and looking in the bushes trying to find another elusive £10!
It certainly cheered her up!

Before I go- I’ll be posting the winner of the giveaway later this week. Stay tuned!!

See you once they’ve all gone back to school and the house becomes quiet again 😉!

    Fabulous little card Keren, was wondering where you had disappeared to! I love blackberries also, they are abundant very close to me but i eat them instead of making things with them lol.

    Looking forward to your new term adventures and more blog posts about scrapes and finding wonderful things under our noses 🙂 xxx

    Keren! Been too long since I dropped by. Love this– the colors, and clean, sweet feel. I really like the touch of shading under the tree as well. Adds a lot! The wind is whipping here even as it’s bright and sunny and supposed to reach 80’s this weekend, but wow does it feel like fall on our side of the pond as well!!
