Allsorts - autumn colours

This week it's my turn to host the challenge at Allsorts and I want you to use autumn colours on your creations. Autumn is a lovely time of the year with all the lush colours of the nature and I'm sure your creations will be equally warm and gorgeous! 
I decided to be a bit "out of the box" and make a christmas card using the warm autumn colours brown, gold and orange. Image, cut from a dp, and the gold brown backing paper are from cchobby 


Other challenges:

Sparkle and Glitter - Halloween


Time for a new challenge at Sparkle and Glitter and the theme this fortnight is Halloween, be it cute or really scary. The digi images from Rick st Dennis are just perfect for this! You don't have to use one of Rick's images to join but since they are so lovely how can you not? :)
I used Hexology on kraft paper with dies from Marianne Design and flowers from Wild Orchid.

SFTW - something spooky

It's time at Stampin for the Weekend to prepare for Halloween cause the theme this fortnight is Something spooky. I used this adorable pumpkin witch from my favourite designer Rick St Dennis, coloured the image with Distress markers. 
I really like the combo of scary and cute in this card and it sort of symbolises the designs of Rick, some really cute, some really scary so there's something for every crafter there =).

Morning,
weekends are lovely, this one particularly. I'm going to a party to celebrate a collegue at work who is turning 40 and Allsorts has a new weekly challenge!
This week the theme is autumn leaves and trees and I made a CAS card using a Lavinia stamp and distressed the background with Mustard Seed, Dried Marigold and Dusty Concord.

The first ever Rick St Dennis challenge

The time is finally here for the first ever Rick St Dennis challenge and the theme for this first fortnight is Anything goes with sparkle and glitter.

I chose to bling up my schedule at work using Rick's warlock digistamp, I love the way he has shadowed the digistamps, making it easy for an amateur like me to get colour depth! There are loads of awesome DT work at the challenge site so hurry over there and check it out!
