Well Autumn is well and truly here now - my garden is covered in leaves of all shapes and colours.
So Autumn is the theme for this weeks challenge on Tag you're It! A fab challenge for me as I get to use all my favourite colours and textures.

Melissa Frances fall sticker, lace, hessian, felt flower cut with cuttlebug, jute string, an old button and a couple of prima leaves (all from my stash mountain).

Can't wait to see what you all come up with.

I made this next card for the 2 Sketches 4 you challenge this week. Another fantastic sketch from Laura again this week.

Now as a rule I don't DO orange but I have been making a few Halloween projects this week and have decided orange is great with black (as long as it's only for Halloween!!!) Needless to say I have a fair bit of orange stash 'coz I never use it!

And while I had the orangy bits and pieces out I made about 30 of these for trick or treat this year. Love these little stamps and such a bargain for only 99p as well. My favourite one has to be the little skull - I couldn't resist making these cute little ribbon bows for her. I always like to make a bit of an effort on Halloween - many people around here will not even open their doors to trick or treaters - now where is the fun in that!!!! I should probably say that in England Halloween is not the big occasion it is the US - such a shame because the kids love it!!!

Have a spooktacular weekend!

I love the texture of your Autumn card and the leaves with the button, that's such a great idea!

I like the way you casually say you just knocked up 30 of the little bags!! 30?? I'm in awe! Love them!
