Lazy Autumn Sunday Afternoon

Good afternoon everyone! You know those days when you can't be bothered to do a thing and basically sit about watching TV, snacking, and doing nothing in general, well that's me today! I'm making the most of it as I have to go to work tonight, so I've got a couple of hours left before I need to motivate myself :) I have got a card to share with you today, although I made it yesterday...

This card is for my BIL, it reads "Happy Birthday Brother". I followed the sketch over at Basic Grey Challenges, it was nice to work with. So the paper is Basic Grey Archaic. The image is a Lelo Design from Stampavie, coloured with Promarkers. As I've used autumn colours, this card also fits the "Autumn Glory" challenge over at the new blog By The Cute And Girly.

Well that's all for today, hope you all have a lovely Sunday, whatever you do (or don't do as in my case lol).

Hi Shelly

Sorry I am a bit late in commenting but I have been away for two weeks and am only just catching up with the world.

What a fantastic autumn card - your image is so cute. I love it and the buttons you have added. I always struggle to add buttons to my projects but yours look perfect and "just meant to be".

Thank you for taking part in the very first "By the Cute & Girly" challenge. I hope you play along again next month.

Love Jules xx
