Challenge Day at Delightful

Today sees the start of a new challenge at Delightful Challenges and the theme this week is:

FALL DAYS

we would love to see your creations using Autumn as your inspiration. A very easy challenge I think just think of autumn colours, falling leaves, harvest - you get the drift!! You don't have to use a Digital Delights image to enter but we love it so much if you do that you can enter twice.  Here is what I have made:


I have used the adorable Haystacks the Scarecrow and he is available to purchase at Digital Delights here and is currently 20% off.  I have coloured him with my Copics and then cut him out with my Spellbinders Nesties and made a faux mat for him.  I have used paper from Wendy's Simply Fall Digital Paper Pack which is also available from Digital Delights here and is currently 50% off it comes with 7 other designs - great value.  The great thing about digital paper is you just print out exactly what you need - no waste and no scraps!  The tree is a Memory Box die and I put different coloured leaves on it which took an age!  I have cut out the letters from Funky Foam using a Tim Holtz die.  The button is October Afternoon and the raffia and twine are from my stash.  The leaves that Haystacks is standing on are made from Woodware punches.  I have also embossed the Coredinations with a bark embossing folder.

We are sponsored this week by:


and they will be giving the lucky winner a £10 store voucher!

Please go over to Delightful Challenges and see what my lovely team mates have made for some further inspiration.  You have until next Wednesday night to enter we would love to see what you create!  Thanks for looking, take care xx

I love all the detail in your card Susan. Autumn/Fall is my favourite season of the year because of the colours of the leaves. I think you have shown these off to perfection.
