Happieigh Scrappin' #38

We have a new challenge today over at Happileigh Scrappin' Challenges which is to use Autumnul colours of Brown Orange & Yellow

The Happi Sisters as always had the pick of the many images in the Happileigh Scrappin' store and I do hope you will take a look at the fabulous creations they have all made on the blog as there are some real beauties there.

For my card I have used a newly released image last week called First Kiss which is in the Girly Girls Section of the store

This is a great value for money set because as always you get the black and white and coloured versions, but you also get 2 sentiments in this set as well all for only $3
I had to keep this away from my hubby as it is my 10th wedding anniversary at the end of the month and I will be giving this card to him. We have been together for 22 years and although I won’t go so far as to say each kiss feels like the 1st, I will say that he still makes my tummy tipple over and I know I am very, very lucky to able to say that after such a long time J
Anyhoo, I love Autumn, love the colours and so this image was easy to colour with my Promarkers  in oranges, browns and yellows. I coloured in the little boy and girls in hair colours that we both had as children, brown for me and ginger for Paul. The background paper is more brown than the photo has brought out and has little flowers and leaves all over it with glitter on them. The sentiment was cut out using a nestie label die, inked around the edges and matted twice onto brown cardstock. The orange ribbon is from my stash. I have use scraps of cardstock to cut out 2 lattice hearts with my Martha Stewart punched and layered them over one another so they are entwined and the last touch is a felt flower with a button centre.

There are loads of fabulous images in the Happileigh Scrappin' Store and Leigh has also got some gorgeous new designs available. With every purchase you this gorgeous image and sentiment free........

Also for every 3 images you purchase you can choose an extra one absolutely free. There are loads of fab images just itching to be played with so you will find it easy to spend your pennies I promise you :)

Remember, for our challenges you don't need to use a Happileigh Scrappin' image but if you do you it will be entered into a separate draw. With freebies available here it is easy to use one of Leigh's fabulous digis.

We would love to see lots of entries in this challenge. Leigh gives away her lovely digis to the top 3 so it is well worth entering and myself and the DT love to see your creations, so come on over to
