Make My Monday: Autumn

Morning everyone, another gorgeous day here thank goodness as the roof is going on today! The builders have been pretty lucky, except when they had to dig the foundations, when it was pretty wet!
Good job I'm not hosting Christmas this year:)
Anyway back to this week's challenge over at MMM.
The theme this month is AUTUMN
and we are also having a
This week we want to see your crafty projects incorporating
Come and see what I came up with:

I bought a box of autumn leaves a few years ago at a local garden centre and this is the first time I've managed to use them! The base card is stamped with SU French Foliage using  Adirondak Cabin Fever and wrapped with string. I stapled two of the leaves together and added a button with a string knot. The sentiment is stamped on a leaf from French Foliage.
Must dash now as I need to practise TRUE COLOURS for Rock Choir tonight and I've got aquafit 
in between:)
Hope you've enjoyed your visit and leave a comment so that I can visit you:)
