Morning All and once again another week has zipped by!
Definitely moving into some Autumnal weather in the UK
which brings me on to this week's 

Autumn Bounty
... so here's my creations which took some doing as
I'm not really 'into' Autumn / Fall / Thanksgiving cards
but I know you'll do fantastic as always ...

This one used:
Clearly Besotted: Frame Mat Die with a Framelit circle cut from the centre
Autumn Blossoms: Acorn stamps
Fresh Flowers: 'Thank You' Sentiment
Marianne Creatables: Leaf Dies
MFT Die-Namics; sentiment strips with Doodlebug DP
and to finish some twine, Wink of Stella and glossy accents

This one used:
Uniko Studio: Peace on Earth - Garland stamp teamed with
Background Builders Vines - Single leaf and vein stamps
Clearly Besotted: Sweet Little Sentiments
Mama Elephant: Index Card Dies and 
Doodlebug pearls for a bit of bling

I'm also entering this one in the Addicted to Stamps Challenge
where it's a photo inspiration week and the Timeout Challenge 
where the theme is STAMPING but I've not used the optional twist

Grab Our Badge!

And last but not least for this week ...

which used:
Clearly Besotted (again): Autumn Blossom stamps 
for my mini leaf panel and sentiment from the same set
Felt Leaf and gems from my stash
The white panels at the top and bottom plus a strip of Doodlebug DP
are adhered with 3d foam adhesive for added dimension.

Ok crafty people it's over to you.
Thanks for stopping by today and looking forward to seeing what 
you come up with over the week.

Enjoy the challenge and have fun!
