Pick of The Patch

If you read my blog on Friday you'd know that I was stalking the delivery guys for my new refrigerator. Well it turned up and oh my gosh I'm in love with "Big Shiny" as we have named him :)






We moved the old one into the garage and now I just feel so happy with my new toy. I was so happy that I spent Saturday afternoon (with the help of my daughter Georgia) sorting out and rearranging my pantry to make it shiny too!
Enough of my kitchen escapades, you are here to see a card and I've got a super sweet one for you today.
I managed to sneak in another of those cards I just wanted to make! There are so many Fall challenges around this week that I wanted to have a play and as I just bought this new digital stamp (after seeing it on the fabulous Suzanne's blog) it was the perfect combination
This is such a cute image and I will admit I went a little over the top with the embellishments but it was so much fun to make!
