On Thursday I shared part 1 of these 2 posts. If you missed part 1 you can find it here . Today I wanted to share the walk we took with our son and Bear in the woods a couple of weekends ago. I love that his local woods look different every time we visit. Earlier in the year the bluebells looked spectacular, this time the leaves on the trees were on fire with their autumnal hues.
There are lots of sweet chestnut, oak and beech trees and Bear love racing around with his football.
It is such a lovely way to spend a couple of hours.
The cold weather is really on its way now. A lot of leaves have fallen over the last few weeks with the strong winds.The temperature this weekend is forecast to be 10c cooler. We have been so spoilt this month with the incredibly mild weather. Winter is really just around the corner now and we are even being threatened with a few flurries of snow here in Surrey at the weekend....brrr.
For my card today I was inspired by the golden hues of those gorgeous leaves and some of the sweet birds we heard in the trees to make this Christmas card.
My focal is Nicecrane digi and I have used a Joy craft frame. The gold mirri card has been embossed with snowflakes but it's so hard to photograph but it is there! I stamped the sentiment and edged it with my gold Krylon pen again. I have added snowtex and glamour dust for extra sparkle on the snow.

This morning I woke up to sleet which has now stopped thank goodness but it is very chilly out with a strong northerly wind. The first cold weather of this autumn. Tonight is Strictly from Blackpool..a great night's entertainment for a cozy night in. I think it's time to light the fire too.
Thanks for visiting me here today.
Keep snug and carry on crafting.
Bye for now,
