Autumn Haze ~ Papertake Challenge & Blog Candy Alerts

This week over at Papertake the challenge is to have an Autumn inspired card. I love Autumn. Here in Canada, the trees change their colors and the maple leaves are gold and red and orange. It is spectacular. One of my favorite times of the year! We like to take walks in the woods near our home and the kids just jump around in the huge piles of leaves. I always bring my camera and these are just the best photos! So this is what inspired this card. Tilda surrounded by gorgeous Autumn leaves. I used a punch from Creative Memories to create the leaves. This Tilda is actually from the Summer Collection but she is probably my favorite and I realized that I could turn her into Fall Tilda simply by coloring her clothes in warm colors and changing the wine to apple cider!
  • Stamps: Magnolia Summer Collection, Sentiment SU! Barocque Motifs (my favorite set)
  • Inks: Memento Tuxedo Black
  • Paper: SU! cardstock and misc scraps
  • Coloring: Copic Markers
  • Embellies: Stickles (on leaves), Ribbon tag from Spellbinders, Ribbon from stash
There are some beautiful blogs offering some pretty amazing candy! Go visit for a chance to win and prepare to be stunned by their gorgeous creations!

Nikki is celebrating 20,000 hits (Congrats to you!)
Suzanne is also celebrating 20,000 hits (Congrats to you too!)
Chrissy is offering some High Hopes goodies!

Good Luck to you all and I am working on my own blog candy. I will post as soon as I get it all ready! WhooHoo!

Love the Autumnal colours and that ribbon tag is gorgeous - something else to add to my wishlist!

I love this Tilda too but think this is her 'too thin' phase - could do with eating some of rolling pin Tilda's food LOL :) xx

This card is gorgeous Jeanette, and autumn is my favourite time of the year as well. So funny that I won some candy right after you did :). Oh and by the way... I don't know if you've seen it already but I also have some blog candy on my blog... you already have Charlotte (I saw your beautiful card beneath this post) but there is also an Elzybells Angel.
