Freebie at Ricks Blog....

Pop Over and grab this brilliant digi image from him while you can. You can find it HERE!
I love the feel to the image and decided to go with Autumnal colours for it. Since everything is starting to change and become cooler here.  
My papers are another one I took out the other day they are K and Company again. I bought loads of them ages ago in a sale and have never used them although I do really like em. Need to reduce the stash though!!! (Said she who just bought loads of Halloween Papers!!) 

 I used my Ultimate again (SHELL!!!) For my bow today. Im hopeless at doing big bows so found it a blast managing to get it right first time!!!
I also coloured my card in with my watercolour pencils. Was thinking back to when I got them last night and its 22 years ago. It was to do my Higher Art at school. I was so excited as they were an expensive buy and I recall My Dad and I going to the Art Shop to get them. Funny what you remember!
