I'm back, with a 'Hello'!

Hi everyone,

I'm back in blog-land, finally. It's almost been a whole month since my last post - life has been absolutely crazy, including colds and work, not to mention trips to the hospital to see my poor aunty...

Anyway, here is my offering for today:

So I saw that beautiful piece of cardstock and thought, "I know what colours to put with this!!!"... but once I'd sorted the colours, I just couldn't work out how to put it together!

It took 2 days just to work out what to do!!! But once I figured it out, it didn't take long to assemble. I love those little birdies at the bottom by Hero Arts - aren't they cute?!
And don't ask me what that little 'ornament' is on the left; I don't really know what I was doing there, but I think it looks okay!
Very 'autumn'-y! Yay for autumn colours!

Oh and I wanted to create a little window, which I managed. It was hard to know what to put in it, once I'd had the idea... so I stamped the sentiment and went over it with some turquoise glue-stickles.

Hope you like it!
