Eep how is it October already?  It's been so cold and dark in the mornings. I know snow will be falling here soon. 
This month at Crafts Galore Encore we are sponsored by the awesome Rick St.Dennis and as always we are Anything Goes.

Thank you for visiting my blog and taking the time to view my creations.
I am trying to reply to your kind comments as I do read all of them, however I often publish from my phone and then get distracted by my children or life in general!
I am always trying to improve my colouring and cardmaking skills and constructive feedback is always welcomed.
