Moving Along With The Times Weekly Challenge # 60

Good morning, welcome to Challenge # 61. A huge thank you to all that joined in Hazel's 'Glitter' challenge last week, we had a record amount of entries. Well done to the winners!

I'm Heidi, and it's my turn to host the challenge this week. I have chosen an 'Autumnal' theme and a recipe to challenge you. The recipe is as follows :

3 x Flowers
2 x Papers
1 x Ribbon/Yarn/Thread

The Design Team, would like to see anything 'Autumn', my theme is quite apt at the moment, as the weather here has got rather cold and wet, lol! On your projects, we would like to see an Autumn scene, Autumn colours - oranges, browns & yellows, leaves etc. Just create something that reminds you of Autumn and enter our challenge using the link below. The Design Team will all pop by your blogs and leave you a comment.

Our prize is a Two Week Guest Design Spot

To the Design Team, wowee they have made some beautiful creations with my theme/recipe, take a look!

Hello everyone and welcome to Challenge#57 . Thank you to everyone who took part in Brenda's challenge last week , we had some beautiful Vintage Pastel card - well done to everyone who rose to the challenge and stepped out of their comfort zone.

This week its my turn to set the challenge and we have a sketch and a photo inspiration to follow.....
