Tilda gathers Mushrooms....Kimmie and Tara's Challenge #1!!!

Isn't this exciting...YAY!!!! Kimmie, from Kraftin' Kimmie's Korner and I, are having our own little challenge! We agreed to pick a stamp that we both have and to make a card with it. Then post it on our blogs today. Well, here is mine!!! I got a little carried away cuz I just love this stamp, Tilda gathers Mushrooms, and I love this new BG Ambrosia pp too. I also wanted to impress Kimmie, grin!!! So, I ended up making two cards. Kinda like my version of a Kimmie two-fer, smile!!!!!

Again, I designed these cards inspired by the LifeArt of Ali Edwards and I am so happy with how they turned out....wada ya think!?

The sentiments are MM rub-ons and the leaves are a QK Squeeze 2X2 die and I also used my large and small Magnolia swirl stamp and Magnolia Owl. Doesn't he look so astute...I think he is helping Tilda find all the yummy mushrooms to pick,smile!!!

For the Give Thanks card, again I used my Magnolia swirl stamps and I also used the leaves from the new Fall Stampclub set. I coloured the leaves in with my Copics and cut them out and placed them to look as if they are blowing in the wind. I also used the small tree line from the new Fall Stampclub set. The sentiment and words are MM rub-ons. I really like this card it looks like Tilda is having a very productive day foraging for fall mushrooms in the forest, with the crisp autumn leaves crunching under foot. I just love the Autumn it is my favourite time of year!!!

Well, thanks for stopping by and having a wee look-see! Kimmie and I are planning to have our challenge once a month!!! Make sure you check back to see what we come up with!!!

Oh, I also wanted to let you know that Carole has some fabulous blog candy up on her blog StarDust Gems and Ribbon ....go check it out!!!
