Crafty Calendar Challenge ...1st birthday!

Once you've read this post you really must head straight on over to the Crafty Calendar Challenge blog to see the prizes on offer for this month's challenge!!
The theme is "birthdays" with the added option of Autumn colours.
My card is one I made for my mum's birthday using my new embossing folder and the pumpkin dies were a lovely present from the very kind Alex.
The rest of the DT have made some gorgeous cards and you should really have a look. The rich autumn colours make a beautiful display.

I've just realised I can enter this card for the challenge a Stampin for the Weekend where the theme is Autumn colours,
Totally Papercrafts...the great outdoors
CRAFT challenge ..fancy florals
ABC challenge...E is for Easel card
Color Throwdown     riding hood red, old olive, pumpkin pie
Stampavie    more than one fold

Just a little note...we have some illness in the family at the moment and I don't really feel like making cards so I may not be around much. If I can get it together I may post a card from time to time but I'm not sure. Sorry,too, that it means I won't be visiting your lovely blogs much either.
