Abigail's Acorn


Morning Lovely Bloggers....

Well... I think it's safe to say that Autumn has arrived (even though the acorns on the trees are still green) and so I think this card is perfect for the season....  here is Abigail's Acorn.  She's one of the fabulous September release from CC Designs - and I knew she needed deep autumnal colours...

Hope you like what I did!  I now feel that I want to go kick up some leaves and collect some acorns..... am I too old for that do you think? hehe!  There are lots of acorns on the trees - I'm told that's a sign of a bad winter - I hope not!!

Big hugs
