Autumn/Thanksgiving at All Dressed Up


Hi Ladies

I'm back today with a totally different colour scheme for me.....  but guess what, I like it!!  Hmmmm should I be worried about my lack of pink do you think?????

It's time for another fab challenge using my favourite digi stamps - All Dressed Up...  and this little lady is called 'All Wrapped Up' - she's drawn by the super talented Wendy Burns and is available HERE.  Isn't she just gorgeous??  As the theme is Autumn/Thanksgiving.....  I decided to use tans/browns (OK - with a tiny bit of muted pink on the flowers and her tights..)  Lots of E number copics and some promarkers did the job. I used a Nestie rectangle (plain and simple) and the papers were out of a Basic Grey pad called Marrakech. The 'belly band' is brown bazzil punched with a Martha Stewart border punch on both sides.  I added a computer generated sentiment onto a La La Land Crafts Stitched Tab die, then finished with some flowers using a Die-namics Flower Trio die.  A couple of pearls from The Hobby House added and that was it.

We'd very much love you to pop over to the challenge blog and give it a go...  you do need to use an All Dressed Up image..  but with such fabulous ones to choose from and even freebies too... who could resist?? And there's a wonderful prize of NOT ONE, NOT TWO, BUT THREE of these super digis to be won! These images really are taking off in a big way... not surprising really seeing as how cute they are and how talented Wendy is...  and I'm so thrilled to be a Dressy Girl on the Design Team!

Take care all... and if you're going to any bonfires this weekend...  ENJOY and stay safe!

Big Hugs and Happy Crafting
