Hi all 🙂

Could I ask you all to invite your friends and fellow crafters to join us in our weekly challenge?

This week I want us to make a postcard to show who or what we appreciate in life and what we are grateful for.

For my card, Ive chosen to use some ‘nature’ elements as I really am thankful to live so close to the countryside, when I feel stress or low I can get on my bike and go and cycle in the country and blow all my cobwebs away

have fun

This week, Marion would like us to get our straw into some scarecrows. Besides the Wizard of OZ I tend to think of horror films when I think of SCARECROWS…

look at Marion’s fabulous sample to inspire us all!Scarecrow

what do you think of when you think of SCARECROWS?

remember to make your postcard 6 x 4 inches in size…. please check this…. as some of us aren’t using the correct size 🙂

all mediums are welcome of course.

looking forward to your Autumnal creations.

Have fun
