Our Creative Corner , SPCC, A Spoonful of Sugar , ABC Challenges + Pile it On

I seem to have been out of the loop for a while, since looking after Daisy for a few days. I don't seem to have found much inspiration either, maybe I'm tired after trying to keep my eyes on a 14 month old little one.
Anyway this card is for five challenges. The colour combination of Really Rust, Basic Black and Whisper White is from SPCC and being autumnal I thought the combination perfect for the Autumn Colours of Fall Y'All from Our Creative Corner and Fall into Autumn for A Spoonful of Sugar this week. The combo challenge blog Pile it On request Black, White + one other colour, so this is fine for that too.
For the ABC Challenge there must be die-cuts in evidence and so my Nesties proved most useful!
I hand stamped the background on the rust paper with a stamp from My Mind's Eye, and used the bird stamp from the same company. I believe the sentiment is from Hero Arts.
Yesterday I bought a Granny stroller to use when Daisy is here with us and also for when I take her into town in Bath. The handles on my daughter's stroller are really low and I'm not too good going down the hills in Bath. You can't believe how excited I am about this buggy. I bought it in Toys R Us and I think it's fab! I can't wait to take Daisy out in it!
Small things please small minds so they say!
