Fall (Autumn) at For Fun!



I hope you're all having a great week - I am cos I have the week off work :) My mission this week is to buy some new winter clothes (every winter I get the same clothes out & put the same summer clothes away lol so I've decided I need a wardrobe overhaul) & I did actually buy a couple of things yesterday as hubby & I had a trip into Norwich :) (now I've just gotta start throwing old things out lol :s).

Anyway on to the business in hand: this week's challenge at For Fun is "Fall" (or as we call it Autumn) & we have a fab sponsor this time - Digi Doodles & the DT were lucky enough to be given images to use & I chose "Hoot Owl" (I love owls).  I paper pieced the owls body & 3d his wings, the rest is coloured with ProMarkers with chalk for the sky.  The papers are Basic Grey "Lime Rickey", I used a Martha Stewart border punch, the flower was made by dissecting a cheap bunch of artificial flowers & the leaf border was another bargain from the Ally Pally & is by LLB.  I finished off with a stamped tag with a free digi greeting from Pink Cat Studio & a brad.


There are lots of Autumnal challenges about at the moment - here's the ones I'm entering:
Sketch Saturday - Sketch!
Tuesday Taggers - Here Comes Autumn
Craftalicious - Harvest Festival/Autumn
Stamp Something - Something with Fall Colours
Sentimental Sundays - Let's See Some Dimension
Paper Sundaes - Things with Wings
Incy Wincy - Anything Goes
Daisy Doodles - Critter Mad
Creative Card Crew - Bloomin' Marvelous
Crafty Creations - Falling Leaves & now Owls
