Allsorts Challenge

Hi folks....yes two challenge cards in one day....things are definitely looking up crafty wise.
The challenge this week over at Allsorts is

AUTUMN DAYS
and yes there is definitely a chill in the air now in the mornings.....time to look out the winter cosies for our early morning strolls









Papers: Jilly Bean Soup 100% Recycled Kraft Paper
page torn from an old book
Image: Hero Arts...Scattered Leaves
Hero Arts Shadow Ink..Soft Apricot
Flowers: Jilly Bean Soup...Bean Seeds
Sentiment: American Crafts Foam Thickers
Tiny Text Alphabets
Button and twine from stash

And before I get lots of e-mails asking where I got my polka dot button...let me explain.....I buy hundreds of white buttons in all different sizes.....this one was coloured using Tim Holtz Paint Dabber....Peeled Paint and then the dots applied with Ranger Inkssentials White Opaque Pen.....to tie in with the dots on the stamped image.
Well that's it for today folks.....off to get the DT stuff done for this week....oh I know last minute again but will be back bright and early tomorrow with another fab challenge over at GET FUNKY.....hope you will be joining in the fun this month................Hugs Kath xxxxxxxx

  1. love the autumn theme Kath, what a good idea with the button. I have tons of old buttons,can't throw them away, always cut them off old clothes.

    Hopeing to have a go at the all sorts challenge too, if I ever get off this computer.

    Big hugs Carolx

  8. Fabby card Kath and what a good idea about the buttons. Always think that no matter how many buttons you have you never have the colour you need. I have coloured buttons before but maybe I should get some more white ones instead of trying to get an assortment of colours.
