Morning all on this wet and dreary morning, but if we only have wet weather on alternate days thats fine by me as long as the others are bright and fresh.

Hope you are all well and the mixed weather isn't allowing too many bugs and viruses to thrive.

My card for this morning I made suprisingly quickly in less than an hour yesturday afternoon, a sneaky craft hour with happy results, for me anyway. I saw on the Crafty Ho's blog they have  challenge to celebrate national childrens day which in the USA is on the 8th October, I'm not sure if the UK has a national childrens day or whether we just should celebrate universal childrens day on 20th November. Not sure how many children I know out there in the universe as as far as I was aware we haven't yet discovered life elsewhere in our universe but still it's nice to celebrate the next generation. It's also international students day on the 17th november but I guess there will be as many students know that and recieve cards from their teachers as there were teachers who knew it was international teachers day yesturday and recieved cards from their students!

Any way either ways whatever day we celebrate the next generation here's the card I made.

the owl I love he's so cute and is a freebie from Dustin Pike. I used glitter paper for the moon and stamped a variety of leaves with some stamps I got in a scrapbook kit from Costco ages back. I coloured with promarkers to make a nice autumnal scene.The leaves at the forfront are some I won from a forever friends chalenge. I added some peeloffs for son and the word 'HUGS' as this is something my son often asks if he can have a hug, and at 16 I know I'm lucky to get these so make the most of them.

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges, I know there were more autumnal ones but alas I have missed there deadlines, but never mind challenges are after all just a bonus and fun aren't they?
