It has definitely turned colder and the challenge for Kreadiva's is Frosty Impressions so I have used my new stamp Daisy's Pirouette.

 I have used MD Passe partout die to frame her. I used LR0112 snowflake, LR0192 leaves and LR0205 fence to cut out in white card and tint with distress ink. I added some lace along the top and sequins along the bottom and the snowflake centres.

To add to the Frosty feeling I have used  Frantage Vintage Embossing Powder and Liquid Pearls around Daisy.

I am entering the following challenges:-
Marianne Kreadiva's Frosty Impressions
Marianne Design Divas Use at least 2 dies
Don and Daisy Challenge 27
Crafting for All Seasons Brr It's Cold Outside
Crafting from the Heart Challenge 87

Autumn Colours

I made this for the Marianne Design challenge. The autumn colours have been beautiful this year with the mild weather and the leaves staying on the trees. I think this is my favourite time of year, that is until springtime.

I used Daisy in the Park (DSS3318) in a contemplative mood, looking at the fallen leaves (CR1336). I added a few on the branch (LR0290). The birds are ready to fly south for winter. I framed Daisy with LR0276 Petra's Bridge cut from Kraft Card. I added leaves (LR0192) and a mulberry flower in one corner.

I am entering the following challenges:-

There are so many Challenge blogs out there, I don't have enough hours in the day to go through them all. So I tend to be selective, ones that inspire or fit into my style (not sure what that is yet). I love Marianne Design so of course choose their challenges, but another favourite is the Shabby Tea Room who chose me for their Tea Time Terrific Top Three again. Their present Challenge is Thankful for which I made this card. It is kind of Shabby Chic so fits the Make My Monday Challenge too.

The background is IndigoBlu Belle Epoque and I slightly distressed and daubed gesso round the edges. I cut some flowers out of a piece of lace and layered onto a bit of spider's web with a large pearl centre. Marianne Design dies used are LR0122 swirl, LR0130 doily, LR0192 leaves, LR0285 corner, COL1379 orchid.
