Challenge Chewsday - Ready for Autumn

I'm a little bit later than usual with my challenge post today - 'usual' being based on only the two Challenge Chewsday entries that there have been prior to this one, however....

I've had a busy weekend with a workshop, a team stamping day and last night a scrapbooking class - my first ever (and hopefully the first of many!), so I haven't had a great deal of time to stamp and photograph my card and then schedule the accompanying post, but with my small girl out on adventures with Daddy, other than being constantly distracted by my absolute favourite YouTube video of the moment (I'll tell you about that in a minute...) my time for an hour or so is my own, so here I am.

This week I took on Just Add Ink #56 - a sketch challenge that looks like this...

...and turned it into this little card (the operative word being "little" - it's only 7 x 10.5 cm)...

The card is a tribute to my favourite season, and I am so very ready for Autumn on a so many levels!  We have had the most unrelenting spell of hot and humid weather here in Perth these past weeks and quite frankly I'm ready for a bit of a break from it!  So is my lawn, at least what is left of it.

The other thing about Autumn that is rather exciting and just over the horizon now, is that it brings with it a brand new mini catalogue!  I'm stalking my postie for my copy, which should be here any day now, but I've seen a preview online and oh lordy, what a treat we're in for :-)

If you'd like to reserve a copy to be posted out next month in readiness for the mini to go live in April, please fill out -->this form<-- with your details and I'll be sure to get one in the post for you!

In the meantime, we still have the delightful Summer Mini in all its goodness, which I have been demonstrating lots of this past month.  If you haven't already, check it out and make sure to grab anything that you want/need before the sales period ends on March 31, not forgetting that until then a $100 order will also score you a free Sale-a-bration stamp set!

Contact me to place your order :-)

And before I sign off, as promised, here is the video that's been on high rotation on my computer since I was alerted to it last week.  I have not been able to stop watching/listening to it, so from me (and those spunky tenors) to you....ENJOY!
