Allsorts challenge week 339 and my Advent calendar

Good Morning, Saturday has quickly come round again and it is time for another  challenge at Allsorts  this week it is the turn of the lovely Tracy and she wants to see the colours of Autumn on your card.

I have used Hero Arts - Basic Tree, quite an old one, doubt if it is still available.

The backing papers are from a pad that has lost it's front, but it has leaves in Autumnish colours.

I have coloured the image with various Promarkers, from looking out of my Craft room window at the colours I could see, when the trees still had leaves on them.

Our sponsors this week are
Sizzix and here is the prize on offer.

and our other sponsor is

Jiggery Makery.
who offer the winner 3 images of their own choice.

Here is my Advent Calendar and can't wait till the 1st of December, here it is...

24 bags of my total favourite snack, once a year for 24 days, I am in heaven, these are the real McCoy, plenty copies out there but not a patch on these, I know I have tried them all.

Sorry about the photo, my door is actually bright white and the packets are red, when I downloaded my photo the door was bright yellow

Sorry, but only my Grandson's are allowed an odd packet or two.

Have a great weekend.
Don't forget to pop over to the Allsorts challenge blog and see the other fabulous makes from the Design Team.

Lovely and fabulous card,
yummy calendar;-))m

MaryH said...

A wonderful autumn tree, and alas, most of ours don't have the lovely leaves any longer. Also love the mat shapes and adding the DP between the white mats. Emphasizes the leaf colors on the tree. Loved your advent calendar too! And you're very sweet to allow your grands to share in the treats with you. Enjoy! & TFS & Hugs (ps...some of the WOW works ok, but my fav gold is STILL the Ranger Queens Gold, and I think Ranger has stopped making that one. Story of my life).

This is a fabulous card Kath, lovely autumn colours.
A brilliant advent calendar - we should all treat ourselves at least once a year.

Hi Kath
Your tree is so pretty. I wish we could still enjoy the autumn colours but like you say the garden is very soggy now. I have some tulips to go in but the rain won't stop!!!!!
Love your advent calendar, what a treat. My DD made me one this year so that's extra special.
Thanks for your lovely comments earlier
Hugs Lisax
