The Fuzzy Wuzzy Challenges - mid way challenge reminder

Hi eveyone! Ready for some serious cuteness?  It is time for The Fuzzy Wuzzy Challenges mid month reminder ...WOOOOOHOOOO!!!!!  Our November Challenge is "Winter, Spring, Summer or Fall" - a season challenge. We have had some seriously gorgeous entries so far and we would love to see what else everyone can come up with.  We also have two terrific sponsors this month - PB Stamps who are offering a gorgeous set of Penny Black clear stamps, but also a 15% off lifetime discount. And also Tickled Pink Stamps with two digi images perfect for the Winter season, Mollie Mittens Christmas and Christmas Wilfred the Wombat  - They are just toooo adorable!  OMG - I want to win, lol.
A gorgeous bloggy friend sent me some House Mouse stamps a little while ago (Thank you sooo much, you know who you are !!) And I've been itching to use them... this one in particular is just beautiful. He is a Gruffie and he is called "Lilac Bouquet".  I've made a sort of masculine Spring card.

I used the sketch over at House Mouse and Friends...albiet a bit loosly, lol. But the elements are there :)


And yes, I know lilacs are meant to be, well lilac(!) but I wanted to make this card for my FIL's birthday and so a little more masculine so checked out google images to see if lilacs came in any other colour...which I was pleased to see you can get a lemony cream lilac.
So... some other challenges are....
