Emmi Lou Boo's Autumn Leaves and Crafting by Designs Challenge

Hi everyone. Did you have a good Halloween? We didn't have one child come to our door :( so Kieran and his work colleagues will have to force themselves to eat the goodies instead :D.
There's a new challenge starting at Crafting by Designs with the theme of Fall Colors. My card is using the totally gorgeous digi stamp Emmi Lou Boo's Autumn Leaves from Lacy Sunshine Stamps. She was an absolute pleasure to colour. I hope you like my card. (sorry, a few more photos than normal)

My craft club closed down on Thursday due to dwindling numbers so I joined another on a Monday. Everyone was very welcoming but it's not really a 'craft club' as apart for me and another lady everyone was painting. Oh well at least I've a monopoly if anyone wants to buy my cards, lol!
Oh I nearly forgot to mention that my 'Breena And Bear' card was chosen as Top Three Winner in the SheepSki Designs Facebook challenge, Yay!! I even got a prize of a digi stamp which was a lovely bonus. I have to admit that I do like getting little badges for my blog as I went a very long time until I got my first one :).
Hey ho, that's it from me today apart from to remind you about the challenge at Crafting by Designs after my long post. It's a great prize so definitely worth entering and you might get your card chosen to spotlight, and get a badge too :D!
Happy Crafting Everyone,
