Simon Says.....Photo inspiration challenge

This weeks challenge is a photo inspiration of a gorgeous Autumn scene! I do love Autumn - the smells, the crisp air, the holidays (I love Thanksgiving!), the gorgeous colours, and the sounds (I love crunching leaves)! What I DON'T like about Autumn is that Winter is right behind it!! UGH!!! And, well, you know.....I HATE Winter!!! LOL Anyway, the
challenge this week is based on the photo - so head to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge blog to check it out & to see all the beautiful creations from the Design Team! Here is my card:

I used 3 different Magnolia stamps - the Winter tree, the tree stump and Native American Tilda. The Winter tree, sky and grass are done with chalks (my new Pebbles Inc. chalks) The paper is Really Rust (SU) and the DP is stuff I've had forever in my scrapbooking stuff. Tilda & the tree stump are coloured with Copics.


As always, you can win this if you join us this week!!!! How awesome!!!

And, remember to come back on Friday after you've entered the Simon challenge to enter to win my Friday Freebie - the prizes are endless!! Check out the other DT blogs too, they all have blog candy too!!! YUMMMMM!!!

Thanks for stopping by! I hope you will join us!

I love this combination of stamps, they go together really well. I'm with you about Autumn, I like Spring too, but what I don't like is the wind. Brrrr.
Hugs, Teresa xxx

Well you and I are quite different in our reasons for loving Fall. I love it because it's the end of summer and winter isn't far away! LOL!
One thing we do agree on though is how cute this little Tilda is! I love the scene you've created for her Chris!

Beautifil cards, I love the blending of the three stamps! I agree with you, I love the feel and smell of Fall but I dread Fall because winter is close by...
