Good morning everyone on a very grey and blustery Monday. Hoping that you all had a lovely weekend.
Also I'd like to wish a Happy Halloween to those of you that celebrate it.
Before I go on to details of this weeks Make My Monday challenge, can I just remind you all that my candy ends at midnight tonight so if you would like to win and haven't yet left a comment on the blog candy post, please remember you have to do this to be in with a chance. The result will be posted tomorrow evening once one of my daughters has pulled a winning name from the hat.
Now for the challenge, this week sees the last of our month of Autumn challenges and I'd like to say a big thanks to Caz for this as I really enjoyed this theme. The challenge this week is to make a project featuring Autumn Leaves and I think this is my favourite of all. I've gone quite grungy and shabby for my card with loads of texture.
As you can see, I've used a kraft card blank which I have to say are my favourites at the moment. I made a panel embossed with the Cuttlebug leafy branch folder and inked this with Mustard Seed, Wild Honey, Spiced Marmalade and Aged Mahogany Distress inks.
I then added a torn edged panel of cream card stamped with a B Line Designs skeleton leaf in Rusty Hinge and a Rubber Stampede leaf stamped with Aged Mahogany.
I made a tag from a piece of hessian, fraying the edges and adding a top tab stapled on. I covered up the staple with a button tied with recycled yarn.
I made some leaves with a maple leaf stamp. embossed with clear powder and inked with various Distress inks. I cut these out and added them to the tag with a sentiment by Hobby Art.

Craft Your Days Away - Autumn
