It’s Autumn Already !! :-)

Hi all :-) Well it’s back to school now,, the kids all went back today and the University starts next week ,, this summer has flown by ! It is still lovely and sunny here though and not TOO hot, lovely :-)
It’s time for a new theme on the House Mouse and Friends Challenge and this time it’s the lovely Dorte’s turn to choose the theme ,,,


ooh, talking of harvest, Ray was out picking his olives  yesterday and only collected one bucket full from our 2 trees,, which will make about a litre of oil, not a good crop this year, and he said he doesn’t think he will take them for pressing,,,, I said, oh take them, a litre is better than nothing, and he said ,,, but I will feel a right idiot (or words to that effect) taking a bucket when there are truck loads piled high pulling in ,,,, LOL ,,, he has a point eh !! :-)  did make me laugh tho :-)

anyhoo’s ,,, moving on to the challenge ,,, 

We are sponsored by House Mouse Designs  and they will be giving one lucky entrant a fabulous $25 Gift Certificate to their store :-)


I used this very cute image from a Joanna Sheen Leaves  set, the original stamp is much larger and is called Don’t Leaf Without Me :-)

I love these cute meeces having fun jumping onto the leaf pile and there is ickle Monica trying to pluck up the courage lol ,, :-) I coloured with Copics and you can’t really see so well on the photo but I chalked the sky using Pan Pastels.  

I will link all the products I used at the bottom of this post :-)
