Week 279 - Allsorts Challenge - Autumn

Good Morning Everyone!

Welcome to another Saturday morning and a card for the Allsorts Challenge design team as usual.
Thankyou to everyone who is following my Christmas Inspiration posts, there will be another one after this post to check out!

Our lovely Sarah has given us a very apt Challenge for this time of the year and I am sure it will be a really popular one ~


and this is my offering ~

This is a print from Joanna Sheen's Thomas Kindcade pads - you are always guaranteed to find a stunning picture from these pads and this one is no exception.  I just love the colours and the way the pathway leads you through the design.  I have used a Sheena Douglass embossing folder for the background and 2 designs from the Sue Wilson dies for the border and the corners.  The leaves are from the Tim Holtz range and I have cut them in patterned papers, moulded them a little and inked the edges with distress inks.
I was really pleased with how this all came together and such an easy card which could suit a gentleman's card too.
 I have also took a couple of pictures of the outside of our shop as the foliage on the building (I think it is a Virginia Creeper? let me know if this is right!) looks so gorgeous at this time of the year.
Unfortunately it wont be long before it is all over the pavement which Mark will have a chunter about!!

I hope that you like the project today and please pop over to the Allsorts Challenge blog to have a look at the other Autumn themed projects from the Team.
I am in Preston at the fabulous Inspirations shop today demonstrating a whole host of lovely crafty goodies so if you in the area please pop in to say hello.  We are staying on the Sunday too and running a workshop so a busy weekend ahead but most enjoyable at one of the most freiendliest shops that I have the pleasure to work in.
Please have a look at todays Christmas Inspiration on the following post - don't forget to leave your comment to be in the Blog Candy draw at the end of the 30 days.
Thankyou, as always, for popping in
Bye for now

  1. I think you are right about it being a Virginia Creeper Jo, they are always glorious this time of your. And compliment your beautiful card so nicely.

    On the boat this year they had an auction on Kindcade originals and I spent a good deal of time admiring them - far too expensive to buy though.

    Hope you have a good weekend.
