Autumn Colours over at Allsorts.

Good Morning, we are now back to our weekly challenges and this challenge 536, is hosted by the lovely Helene, who has chosen the theme of ...

Autumn Colours

We have a new sponsor this week - Julia of JMC Designs, with a store voucher for one lucky winner.

My first card is using one of Julia's new images.
Pumpkin Spice
This is a digital image and I printed the image directly on to the DP.
Now this was an old paper pad and on one of my 'sorting out' days the few sheet that were left I split into individual sheets and re-cycled the front and back sheets and some of the sheets that I was not too keen on.
The sentiment is also from one of Julia's stamps.

My original card for this challenge uses a 
background created with Distressed Inks and a
Honey Doo Stamp - Hydrainger Bouquet

I stamped the image directly onto the background and framed it.

Some lovely creations from the team, do pop over and check them out.

So the school holidays are well and truly over, Mum and Dad are pleased as punch and the Kids and Teachers are probably gutted. They do seem to have flown by this year.

Thank you for popping by and any comments you are kind enough to leave are very much appreciated.

Both such beautiful creations, Kath. The image is so perfect for an autumn theme and the pretty paper fits the image so well. And such a beautiful autumnal distress ink background on the second card as well!

Two lovely creations. I love the look of the second card. Fortunately I have never been bitten by ants but will be on the lookout for them now.!! I know these reactions we get are nothing in the great scheme of illnesses but they are no fun at the time or the precautions we have to take to avoid it happening again. Hugs Mrs A.

I'm playing catch up at the moment, I have been on holiday for a week and have been having a major sort out in my craft room.
