Anniversay card fro friends plus Autumn is here

Good morning everyone, I hope all is well in your world. Sending hugs to all who need or want them!

This post is picture heavy so you need to settle down with a cuppa and relax :o)

I had a lovely stroll at Attenborough Nature Reserve yesterday morning and the sign of Autumn were all around, it is my favourite time of the year!

 Anyhow, I digress, her is my card for the day and a few photographs that I took yesterday.

Own photograph taken earlier this year at Straw's Ponds, Ilkeston, printed onto my usual white linencard then cut with Xcut large circle.
Basecard cut from MME card with Spellbinders Grand Nestie.
Swans cut with Marianne dies.
Computer generated sentiment cut with SU punches.
Dragonflies cut with Xcut punch.
Leaves cut with Memory Box die.
And now a few photographs showing the signs of Autumn.

 And a few others taken on my stroll.


 Tern or gull, I am not sure!
 And finally, this shows what the lakes are, they are all gravel pits and extraction is still taking place. It just shows that a lot of beauty can come from gravel extraction, we just have to be patient as it takes years to show :o)
