Stampin' for the Weekend - Autumn Inspiration

Good afternoon bloggers!! I've ranted and raved about silly Blogger on my other blog so I won't start again but let it be noted that I'm extremely stressed out today, lol. 

Our challenge on Stampin' for the Weekend is Autumn Inspiration. We would like you to use the wonderful oranges, greens & browns of autumn on your creation. 

Don't you just love this Maggie??!! It's an oldie but a goodie - I bought her on ebay a while back.  I've coloured her using copic sketch markers, cut her out using my circle nesties and shaded the background with distress inks.

My papers are Basic Grey Mellow.. and they are another of my favourite BG lines. They've been inked with brushed cordoroy. The ribbons are from one of the Raspberry Ribbons kits and my flowers are of course from Wild Orchid Crafts - I think they're missing some green though.  hmmm!!

I'm entering this into the Simon Says Stamp Challenge which is an Autumn photo inspiration challenge,  Copic Creations Challenge who want to see orange (fall/halloween), and Just Magnolia's monthly challenge Anything Goes

Oh lord, it's taken me so long to get this post done.. it's 1pm and I've done nothing else all day.. OK, off to whip the house into shape before the kiddos get home and wreck it again!

Please do take a little time to visit my teamies' blogs and leave them some love:)

Oh wow this is so beautiful Sandie, that gorgeous image the beautiful papers I love it. I think blogger is stressing a few of us the moment, the error messages the trouble loading photo's it is a nightmare.
