Autumn Colours

Good morning, today sees the start of a brand new challenge over at Lexi's Creations and the theme for this challenge is Autumn Colours.  We would love to see your creations with the colours of autumn on them, here is what I have made:


I have used Lexi's Mushroom Ladybug which you can purchase here at FairyDust Crafts.  I have coloured the image with my Copics and then cut and matted with my Spellbinders Nesties.  The paper is by Basic Grey from the Rock Pool Collection, I know not very autumnal but I still felt it looked autumnal.  I have embossed the Coredinations cardstock with a Bark embossing folder.  I have used loads of different leaf dies - Marianne, Spellbinders, Memory Box. I did have the new Spellbinders Leaf dies on pre-order but they haven't arrived yet!  Our sponsor this challenge is:




My Heart Pieces.  Please pop over to Lexi's Creations to see what the wonderful DT have created.

Thanks for all your kind comments regarding my daughter.  It is now five weeks and, unfortunately, we have yet to see an improvement.  We see the consultant again tomorrow but I don't think anything will change.  It has been very heart warming to receive your kind comments and it does mean a lot.  I have been managing to make my cards for DTs that I am on and although they take several days to make when I am able to get some time it is very therapeutic!  Hope you are all ok and thanks so much for looking, take care xx
