watch out for falling leaves...

Good morning everyone and thank you all for your wonderful comments for yesterdays blog hop, you all seemed to love the ribbon theme...I wish I felt up to commenting back but I honestly read every single one and appreciate them all and hopefully over the next few days I will be able to comment on everyone I have missed...no docs appointment but never mind at least my leg isn't falling off so what have I to complain about lol...my card for today is for our new challenge at Just Magnolia & hAnglar & sTanglar challenge...its our wonderful Jacques choice this week and she has given us a fab sketch with the added challenge of Fall/Autumn is in the Air

I have no idea what this Tilda is called but I love her hat,scarf and gloves don't you...and how much do I want a pair of those boots, in this orange red colour though...I coloured Tilda with distress inks (oh btw have you seen there are three new limited edition colours in Distress inks)...the lush paper is from My Minds Eye and are called At the Beach/Large Polka Dots...gorgeous colours isn't it...I wanted to add a bit of interest so I drew a tree and cut it out shaped it and raised it above the background, I punched loads of leaves from the same paper and some glitter board in Green/Blue and Red and I finished with a ribbon and knot...I love these rich autumn colours don't you...I'm entering this for the Creative Inspirations, Crafty Catz Weekly and Cute Card Thursday challenges all they are all Anything Goes...I'm hopefully going to get a bit of crafting done today as I'm not used to just being able to just make them one at a time...whatever your up to today watch out for falling leaves
