October Friends of Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz!!



Don't you just love the logo this month for the Friends of Waltzingmouse Blog Waltz ?? All crisp and Autumn-y with all the beautiful colours - yellows, browns, oranges - all just gorgeous!! 

I can just smell the apples now - of course it could be because of the apple core I found under the couch this morning........my grandchildren have been here for a few days and it is really funny all the things I am coming across that I wouldn't otherwise lol!

Stepped on a dinky car last night in the dark trying to make my way to the  Smiley from millan.net
bathroom..........the wet diaper the dog dragged out of the garbage.......and the sippy cup that went bounce bounce bouncing down the stairs when the children were having their nap ......like I said all sorts of fun!! .....one more sleep....

Sorry....back to the waltz!! This month's theme is Autumn/Harvest!

I have been working on a lot of sympathy cards lately....it seems that we need them and I don't like that.....but I do enjoy having a stack of them around......here are my results....I used Autumn colours for my theme......







Thanks for coming around and I hop you are enjoying the hop!!

  1. You were busy! I really like the last card. The colors are great, and the different colors on the tree on your tag look just like a tree in my backyard! Thanks for showing, Candy

    Thank you fro your kind comment on my blog - and I love your teeny tree card too, especially the effect of that 'splotchy' stamp ! Your sympathy cards are lovely as well, I find them quite difficult to get the balance right, but clearly you don't !
