New Home in Autumn Colours

I hope the weather is as good where you are as we have another beautiful sunny morning here. I have a really busy day today, dreaded h/w to do, ironing and loads of crafting to get done.  Tomorrow is Macmillan's world's biggest coffee morning and I shall be at one in Swanton Abott with my card stall so need to finish off some stuff for that too.

This is my DT card for Squiggle Stamps using one of the new Autumn images. Our current challenge is Autumnal colours and you can now use any image to enter. It ends tomorrow so get your entries in. This lamppost is useful for so many cards and can of course be combined with other images as it is a digi. I inserted it into Word and added a textbox with no lines into the blank sign to make it a new home card. The papers are Echo Park Walk in the Park. I seem to be using those a lot at the moment as the colours are just right for Autumn cards. I used the MS zigzag border punch and a flower punch with card candi. Image is coloured with Promarkers and Flexmarkers and outlined in DI Victorian Velvet. I used a lovely new Nestie to cut out the image. I've wanted this set for ages and managed to get them at Ally Pally. Visit Squiggle Stamps online shop to check out the latest images and grab yourself a bargain with some reduced images.
I would like to enter this into the challenges of anything goes at Sweet Stampin' and  Penny's .
