Autumn - already??

Hello my lovelies.
Oh my gosh, I can't believe I haven't posted since 22 July!!! My bad!
So, how are you all?  Been enjoying the good old British Summer?
Mind you, it has been ok really don't you think?
I love the Summer for the sun and the warmth but I have to be honest and say that for the colours, I do love Autumn.
Anyhoo, best crack on.
Just thought I would show you my latest card.
This one features a new image from the lovely Ching Chou Kuik and it is called Autumn in Far North.  It was produced especially for a colouring event over at Kit and Clowder on Facebook.  Kit and Clowder, in case you don't know, is a fabulous community teaching fantastic colouring techniques.  There are numerous classes that you can purchase or even a monthly colouring class using pencils and one for markers.
Why not pop over and have a look at the website - it really is great fun.
 So as I had done this for the current colouring competition at Kit and Clowder, and also entered it into the Ching Chou Kuik challenge on Facebook, I thought I would blog it and see where else I could enter it.
Here is the card:
I have used my Copics to colour this one for a change. (I usually use my Polychromo Pencils)
I am really happy with how this one turned out and I feel like I'm getting braver with my colouring.
Not sure I have got the blending quite right yet cos I can still see the individual colours, but I'm getting there slowly.
See what I mean?  Mind you I am especially pleased with the woodland face in the background. I lost count of how many colours I used on that. lol
I finished it off with a line sentiment from Clarity which I stamped in Versamark and then embossed with black embossing powder - really stands out doesn't it?
So there you have it.
I shall enter it in the following challenges:
