Its Raining Leaves...all over my garden!

Hi, Hope you are having a good week so far. The kids are off school this week....again! They have a holiday just about every month, it seems like a lot more this year but i must admit i enjoy not having the morning rush and early get ups!

Today i was standing watching out the window and the leaves are now falling from the really massive oversized, overgrown, out of control  tree that is in our neighbours garden. It reaches and falls over the side of our house and garden..meaning we have all his leaves to pick up and his garden is leaf free!! It Does get frustrating, there were are out filling bag after bag of leaves and he is standing there with not a care. The tree really needs seen by a professional to cut it back or even better down altogether. Anyway enough moaning a about a tree!!! 
I was looking through my digi stamps and decided to use this Elisabeth Bell digital stamp. Its just like us trying to catch the falling leaves from the tree. I also thought the tree charm just fitted in with this card so well.

She is called "Li'l Janiels Harvest"
