Crafty Calender Challenge # 1 - Autumn

Good morning my crafty friends!

Woohooooooo! It's time for a brand new challenge, the Crafty Calender Challenge is born!! How exciting...... created by my lovely daughter Georgia and all her own work I must add....... she wouldn't even let me get involved in picking the Design Team, meanie, lol!!

Well it certainly is a fabulous team and they've come up with some wonderful creations to kick things off, so do check out their blogs won't you? I was over the moon when Georgia asked me to appear as a guest for the launch and had loads of fun creating this card. I've been itching to use these scrummy new papers by Bo Bunny as they have the most gorgeous Autumn feel. I'm sure there are many Pixies working in the garden just now, tidying up the leaves whilst we're all asleep, so I thought I'd use one of the amazing Pixies available to download at Charmed Cards.

Papers: Bo Bunny
Image: Charmed Cards
Leaves: Woodware Embossing Punch
Colouring: Polys and Koh Pencils
Sentiment: Melissa Frances Rub-on

Thank you so much for visiting today and for any comments you might leave...... and have a wonderful day whatever you do!

TTFN and TFL xxxx

Gorge card sweetie, love the image and all the leaves, so perfect for this time of year. If you find any of those Pixies, can you send them down my way, I have a rather huge amount of leaves in the garden that could do with tidying LOL. How cool would that be!
Much love
