Autumn Leaves & Conkers



Using this week's Freshly Made Sketch.
The Male Room and Just Us Girls want 'leaves'
and the Autumn challenge is still on over at Uniko.







It's a beautiful, sunny Autumn day.
We've just come back from a long walk with the dog,
and my pockets are full of new, glossy conkers.
Love conkers!
Did you know they are reputed to ward off spiders?
My son has piles of them in each corner of his bedroom!

  2. Gorgeous autumnal card.

    Yes . . . apparently spiders don't like horse chestnut . . . that's what's in the spray that Lakelands sell!
