Truly scrumptious - Challenge 18

The children are in bed sound asleep.... finally some time for blogging. I think they both were pretty tired after last night... Maja had a friend staying over, and they were giggling away till waaay past their normal bedtime. Poor Susie woke up in the middle of the night and couldn't go back to sleep because of all the monsters in her room.... in the end, I had to let her sleep between me and hubby... and even then it took her ages to fall back asleep... she was too busy telling us all about the scary monkeys (was it monkeys, not monsters?) in her room and the cows in our ceiling....???. Lol... the joys...

I decided to join a challenge to see if that would help me find my card making mojo again. I found a great sketch over at the Truly Scrumptious challenge blog. This weeks challenge was a sketch AND a theme. The theme was Autumn, and here's my card.
The main image was in that goodybag I got from Ida a few weeks back, so I don't know who it's by... anyone? The pumpkins and the corner stamp I won in Maria Therese's candy a while back. I think they're WOJ, but am not entirely sure. Images are coloured, as always, with water colour pencils....
Here you can see a bit of the inside. I stamped the pumpkins inside with VersaMark ink (and the text on the front too)....
Oh... almost forgot to say that the main image and pumpkins are mounted on pop dots (never a card without pop dots...lol...)

Nyderlig kort, du er kjempeflink.. Jeg skjønner ikke helt hvordan du får det til?!!!

For et fint kort. Flotte høstfarver.
Har Susie begynt å se monster på rommet sitt, stakkar det er jo helt fælt å sove sammen med sånne stygginger. Hun får lage en drømmefanger. Kan hende det hjelper.
Sov godt uten monsterdrømmer.

Da Barnet var liten var det monstere i hans rom også og jeg lot ham sove med en vannpistol på nattbordet. Jeg fortalte ham at monstre ikke tålte vann og det hjalp faktisk helt utrolig. (Hva gjør man ikke???)

Enda et nydelig kort. Du er skikkelig dyktig. Det er du.

ha en flott søndag.

This is a delightful card!

When we put my son down he gets up at least 4 times before settling down - his excuses get more & more inventive each time LOL

This is SO adorable. Reminds of me Precious Moments that were very popular in the 1970's. When I was a teenager!
