Totally Papercrafts ,,,,, The Great Outdoors Challenge :-)

Oohh the cards last week were truly 'Magical' ,,, fabulous creations and some fabulous ideas out there !! you clever lot !! :-)

This week it is Emma's turn to choose the theme on the Totally Papercrafts Challenge and she chose

THE GREAT OUTDOORS :-)

we are sponsored by the lovely Wendy at Digital Delights who will be giving one lucky winnner a $10 voucher to her store :-)



Did you ever do this when you were kids ,,, in an old tractor tyre ?? hanging on for dear life as you hurtled down the edge of the slag heap lol :-),, simple fun eh !! ( for those of you who don't know what a slag heap is ,, it's a mountain of stones and bits of coal,, the waste from coal mines :-)) nice memories ,,,,, ha ha apart from when you fell off and skinned yer knees and knuckles ,, anyway ,,, moving on ,,,, :-)
I used my lovely new HM stamp ,, this one is called Head over Heels I coloured the image with copics and added glossy accents and rock candy distress stickles to the berries. The papers are Cosmo Cricket Nutmeg papers ( love these papers ,, brill for autumn cards ) I added some organza ribbon, a rose and a few Robins Nest Dew Drops to finish ,, the sentiment is from a Pure Innocence stamp.

Craftalicious ,,,,,, Harvest festival/Autumn

Oh, Lorraine, I'm totally in love with this card. HM has a great habit of putting three little characters in images that make me think of my three girls...like this one. Perfectly pretty and fun all in one. "WHEE"! What a great card!

Smiles!
