Craft Your Days Away Challenge #4

Firstly, thank you so much to all of those who took part in challenge number 3 over at Craft Your Days Away.  As I set the challenge, it was my job to pick our next guest designer and the Top 3.  It was so very difficult to choose - the entries were all amazing and you should all be winners!  Pop over to the challenge blog to see if you are a lucky winner.

Challenge 4 is a great one for the next two weeks:

Autumn Doodles

So we want to see an autumnal (fall) themed card with some doodles on. 

I have doodled some little dots around the frame and added some Doodlebug rub ons, which look like handwriting but are so much neater than mine!  The image I used is by Meljen available from Whimsy Stamps, which I have coloured with my pro markers. 

Unfortunately the Whimsy Stamps store is off line. On Sunday the store was closed for what was thought would be 24 hours to perform maintenance on the store and move everything to a new server, but, unfortunately the online store has crashed and though techy guys have been working on it its still not rectified.  We have been told that the store should be up and running again in the next 7-10 days.  Everyone who placed orders before the server went down should still receive any stamps ordered. If anyone purchased a digital image and were not able to retrieve it, they should contact Denise via email -

In the meantime, until problems are fixed. you can still order any Whimsy designs, including Meljen's Designs by emailing Denise directly.

I have made the flower by using a scallop circle nestabilities die.  I've cut several layers or autumn colours handmade papers and scrunched them up to give them a more natural look.  I just added a brad in the centre to finish.  The paapers are all from My Mind's Eye and I have added the fallen leaves with a Woodware "Grass" paper punch.

I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Gingerloft Challenges: Anything Goes
Incy Wincy Designs: Autumn Colours
Die Cut Dreams: Sweet little girl - Digital
A spoonful of sugar: Autumn colours

Don't forget to join us at the challenge blog and show us your Autumn Doodles.

Thanks for looking!
