Crafty Calender Challenge - Launch Day !

Yay, it's friday 2nd October which means it is time for the launch of a brand new challenge site Crafty Calender Challenge where I am lucky enough to be on the DT. This is a monthly challenge that will be set on the first friday of every month, and each month we will have a fabby sponser, this month it is ' Sketching Stamper ' who have donated a lovely prize for you. Today we want you to create an Autumn card. To me autumn always means Halloween so that is what I decided on for my card. I am also entering this for the Allsorts Challenge where this week their theme is Autumn too.I have used the adorable ' Pippi ' from CC Designs, I have stamped her with Memento Ink and coloured her with my Copic Markers, I have glittered her wings for a bit of sparkle, I do love my sparkle lol !

The papers I have used are all by BoBunny, they are such bright vibrant colours and fitted perfectly with my colouring. I have used my famous QK swirls again, I do love these, and have also used some cherry blossoms from my stash.

The sentiment is also from CC Designs, I love this saying and will use it alot, even on birthday cards for little girls as I often call my own children ' Pumpkin ' - on their good days anyway lol !

So, I hope you like my post - Oh, I forgot to tell you about the little gift bag, memory like a sieve ! I got the tutorial for this from Here it is so easy to make and I thought it would be lovely to give little Halloween treats in. I used some more of the BoBunny papers and some ribbon from my stash, the label that Pippi is on was cut with my Nesties.
Right, I think I have finished now lol ! I hope you have time to come and join in with us this month, and I really look forward to visiting all your blogs to check out your creations.
Have a wonderful day,
Claire xx
