Welcome Autumn/Fall

Hello everyone, thanks for your visit. Over the past two days I have
 had 189 visitors, none have made a comment but I know you are there.
I thank you all for your visits, but would love for you to leave me a comment.
Back to today, we have a new challenge on Cardz 4 Galz. -
Challenge # 105 Welcome Autumn/Fall.
Please pop over to the blog, to check the details and to see the
amazing inspiration from the Design Team.
For my card I used both Black and Orange to mat the
white sheet with the stamped image of the 
Autumn Wreath by a USA company, code K 1883,
I was so lucky to find this in a sale bin. I love the 
intricate details, when colouring it in with Promarkers.
I hope you like my interpretation to Welcome Autumn.

Use Shapes on your Card

Good morning, thanks for popping by. Today our 
new challenge starts on Make My Monday.
Dawn has chosen #104 Use Shapes on Your Card.
Please pop over for more details and to see the various
shapes created by the design team.
I have always enjoyed Inchies and Twinchies, so I
decided to go for (square) Inchies.
I created the background for the Inchies and the 
die cut word 'Sending' by blending 3 DIs - 
Twisterd Citron, Fossilized Amber and 
Abandoned Coral - amazing names.
The stamps are Birds Inchies by Inkadinkado.
A little glitter, why not? A black gem for the 'I' dot.
Take care, the UK's Autumn officially started 
yesterday and already there is a drop in temperature.
Hunting out my cardigans - keep warm and stay well.
