Autumn Colours

Thank you for your thoughts about my son yesterday. As the dentist had said, he was ok. He was just a bit uncomfortable after the surgery, had a bit of swelling and stitches , which you would expect, and then he slept all afternoon. When he woke up then he also could eat, so I was really pleased too. So its next week now for his next appointment when he has to have two teeth removed and then another two the week after! Today now he is back to school, much to his dismay.. yes he doesn't like going to school at all ...

... and it's back to work for me too!! Today I have my DT Card for the new challenge starting today at I ♥ Promarkers. The theme for this week is AUTUMN COLOURS... and speaking of Autumn... did you know that we do not have Autumn weather here in Malta! Yes even though it's officially Autumn, we are still wearing short sleeves and shorts and it is still quite hot too. It will normally still be warm by the end of this month, a little bit cooler in November, sometimes still warm too and then all of a sudden it gets colder and before we know it we are in Winter!

Anyway, onto my card now. For my card today I decided to use one of my fave stamps from Crafty Sentiments which I have of course coloured with my promarkers and 

... I followed this gorgeous sketch to do my card.

Hi Dora :)

Oooh, I feel for your son - I had to have a tooth out 2 weeks ago at the hospital - it just cracked overnight! Hope he is doing ok, but it sounds like it will be a wee while before he is feeling 100% - aww.

Your card is beautiful and so warm! Love the seasonal image, colours and fab layout!
