Jingle Belles and Autumn

Hello ...
Thank you all so much for your lovely comments on the magical box ... I'm so happy that you liked it ...
I have finally got my card done for this weeks' challenge at Jingle Belles Rock - This week the theme is "Softly" falling snow ... use something on your card that you interpret as soft ... so straight onto my card 


Well I had to use 'snow' ... (flower soft with a topping of glitter) on my embossed image


and some soft felt snowflakes ... a cosy crochet heart and some delicate tulle


 ... and of course some white Broderie Anglaise lace ... these all signify 'soft' for me and I now have 43 cards ready for Christmas

... But here it is very much Autumnal ...


The trees are shedding leaves and the colours are changing but there is some confusion with the plants 


... some appear to be blooming again ... unsure if the sunshine and the cool mornings signifies spring




even the "fox and cubs" has put in a second appearance ... not wanting to miss out


... But the Holly bush is in no doubt ...


... Nor the Firethorne ...


... and the Sedum has already donned her rich wine coloured gown ...


... and as the clocks go forward this weekend ... even Autumn will be saying goodbye

Enjoy your day ...

~ Ros ~

Hi Ros...you are not only polite, but a gem of a person. I take your comments with great honor. Thank you. Your art is gorgeous! Pinks and soft colors...I don't use them much but I am a totally pink person. Yours is so delicate and fine! It takes a special soul to do this type of work. Thanks in every way. Have a great weekend. Samara

Photos are lovely- what a garden you must have! Sorry to see Autumn go. If all Christmases looked as beautiful as your card, then I wouldn't mind the onset of winter as much! Don't get me started on your 43-strong Christmas collection! I can boast of ermmm...8?!!! xx
