Craft Your Days Away #4

Hello again, I'm back with my second post for the day - I'm on a roll lol.

Time now for another fortnightly challenge at Craft Your Days Away, this time round its been set by the very lovely Carol Ann...
 
AUTUMN DOODLES

Yes I'm afraid summer seems to have well and truly left us for this year and autumn has arrived so we want this colourful season to inspire your project with the added addition of some doodles, be it handwriting, faux stitching or trying your hand at some doodled images.

We are thrilled to welcome Whimsy Stamps as our sponsor for this challenge
 
And the winner will recieve...


Whimsy unfortunately has been offline for the last few days but the good news today is THEY'RE BACK ONLINE - happy days!!!!!.

I've used an image from Katie's Digital Downloads range of digi stamps, available exclusively at Whimsy Stamps.  


I've used BG papers and done a little faux stitching with handwritten sentiment.  I LOVE this image, its soo fun to work with !

I do hope you can join in the fun with us this time and don't forget you could be joining us as a Guest Designer - check out the challenge blog HERE for details.

-----------------------------------------------------------

I've been out this morning with Emily whilst she was at gymnastics now I'm taking Ethan horse riding - I do hope the weather holds lol.  Ethan's only 7 but can be a bit of a handful as his concentration at times is non existent and he does not like being told what to do - this has led to him getting into trouble at school!!!

The horseriding lesson today is a reward for good behaviour and I'm hoping he'll learn the importance of following instruction - otherwise the horse could take him where ever IT likes lol.  Should be an interesting lesson - I'll let you know how we get on!!  

Take care and happy crafting.  Looking forward to seeing your creations.
