Crafty Little Fairies - Autumn Colours

Good morning everyone and welcome to another Crafty Little Fairies challenge. Thanks so much for all your entries last week - so good to see you sticking with our new venture.
This week it's the turn of the Pink Fairies, and our theme is
Autumn Colours

So we would love to see all your rich shades of red, deep yellows and golds, oranges and/or browns - lovely!

This week's kind sponsor is Teresa from My Crafty Heart with a £10 store voucher - woo hoo!

Don't forget the challenge is now open to all makes of stamp (inked or digi) so have fun!

The rest of the DT have filled the air with autumn colours - here is my effort.

The truth is I don't use autumn colours very much ... but I thought these yummy LotV papers would fit the bill so I based everything else around them. Don't you just love this cute image ... I thought it goes so well with the papers. :-)

Stamp: LotV "Emma Pot Plant";
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers; image edged wtih "shabby white" frantage;
Papers: LotV "Country Lady";
Supplies: flowers all from Wild Orchid Ceafts apart from white rose; berries by Magnolia from the Glitterpot; lace and twine from The Ribbon Girl; pearl from The Hobby House; sentiment from LotV Art Pad 8; gingham ribbon from my stash.

Wild Orchid Crafts #86 - Inspired By Autumn

Hope you can join us in the Crafty Little Fairies challenge this time - good luck!

Christmas Stocking

Hi everyone .... well I haven't posted for a while as I just got back on Friday night from a 10 day holiday in Majorca. We were really ready for it after the difficult summer we've had; and we had a great time even though the weather was a bit mixed. Needless to say I've been pretty busy this weekend with unpacking and laundry (I'm sure dirty holiday clothes multiply in the case on the way home!!); but inbetween all that I have managed to sort out this week's DT work and also make an additional card.
It's fair to say that I'm rather behind with my Christmas makes ... so I'm determined to start making more of an effort to get on top of the situation!
Here's a card using this adorable teddy stamp sent to me last Christmas by my lovely friend Jennifer ... I really love this image, he just has the cutest little face!  This card was really quick to make as I had already coloured the image some time ago :-)

My only concern is that foer some reason the pictures look MUCH brighter when imported into this post than they do on my PC .... don't understand!!

Stamps: Stampavie "Teddie's Stocking"; LotV "Christmas Sentiment Tags";
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers;
Papers: My Mind's Eye (holly) and Dovecraft (damask);
Supplies: Poinsetta by Crafts4U2Do; pearls by Wild Orchid Crafts and The Hobby House; ribbon from my stash;
Tools: Spellbinders "Floral Ovals" die.
