Playing With Leaves


This is going to be a quick post as i want to go and watch 'The Ryder Cup' final day - son is in nursery till 3pm !!!

Ok todays image did not start off with leaves in the air - in fact it was flowers (it was an image i had been given in a swap, otherwise i could have just added the leaves!!), but i have hopefully cleverly managed to cover these with leaves - I was going to buy a leaf punch, till i went routing around in my box of tricks and found a very old X-Cut punch and i personally think it has done the job.

Right on to the Challenges and Card:

Penny Black At Allsorts - where Octobers Challenge is 'Autumn Colours'

Simon Say's Challenge - where this week they have a fabby photo for inspiration and it so reminds me of the fabby time i had 'Leaf Peeping' in New England - 7 Years ago and their title is also 'It's Autumn'

Friday Sketchers - where they are up to Sketch No: 122

Stamping For The Weekend - where Challenge No: 48 is 'Autumn Inspirations'

Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - where Challenge No: 79 is 'Layer It On', it must be a least 5 layers and i've counted and mine has 7

Image - Penny Black - 'Hedgehog Joy'
Papers - Doodlebug - Don't know the name of them though, as they came in a 6" x 12" pad and they have called it 'Doodlecharms'
Leaf Punch - X-Cut
Ribbon - Stampin Up

Thanks for looking, Luv Sam x
