Autumn Collection.

Today is the 1st of October and this weekend is Harvest Festival in our village. I decorated the church gates this morning with brightly coloured chrysanthamums and this afternoon put the finishing touches to my autumnal cards ready for the 'Harvest Sale and Exhibition' at the village hall.  

This is one of my creations - since I saw this box idea on a blog a while ago I have made quite a few. I mostly make them with 4 drawers but this one has been made with 1 drawer and I printed off next year's calendar and stuck that on too. If I could have found any for sale in the shops I would have put a block of post-it notes in the drawer, but alas - none in the shops. Here's a close up of the front

I love the Autumn Days stamp set and here is another card I made using the little leaf stamp

These cards have been made using the gorgeous Stampin' Up Earth Elements colours - perfect for autumn.
OK - I need to get organised now and pack up all my stuff for the sale tomorrow. I'm hoping the weather picks up a bit so we get plenty of punters spending loads of money. Have a great weekend folks - see you soon - Jacqueline xx.

  1. I love all the autumnal colours so these are right up my street! What a great gift idea the little stationery drawer and calendar is! Hope the sale goes really well for you.

  2. I love these Jacqueline. The little drawered calendar box is so cute. Is that Bird on a Branch that I spy on the card? How clever to add the leaves to it. I must get my Autumn Days set back out - it's the perfect time now isn't it.
