So let's get on with our challenge for you this week which is to use ....
Autumn Colours

Scatty Jan - For this week’s project I have used the lovely Geek , I think she is lovely. I have also used one of the flowers from the Back to Nature set which is divine - there are so many lush flowers on there. I coloured Geek using promarkers and added glossy accents to her glasses. Made some backing paper and a large flower using the back to nature set which was also used on her dress.
Zoe - This week I have made a clean and simple card using the gorgeous Tilly Reading digi image & I also used leaves from a flower.  You can find lots of accent digi images, like flowers, in the digi download section. I used a simple dotty embossing folder to create the background. I coloured all of the images with a mix of markers including the gorgeous Graph It markers. Sometimes keeping the background white & simple lets the images jump off the page!
Anjie for my card the image I have used is the Emma Canning Under The Weather Digital Stamp  which is an instant download so no waiting to play, how fab is that!
I have coloured the image with my Graph' It Markers and the papers are from the Pretty Tuff CD Rom! Who would have thought you could use a male orientated product to create a female card? That's how versatile the Polka Doodles CD's are! I have made the paper roses by cutting a circle out and then cutting it into a spiral and rolling it. I have also added some spiders web and flourishes.
Sarah - I picked a really cute, whimsical Emma Canning image - Deer Friend - for my card this week.  I thought she would really suit Autumnal colours.  For my papers I chose Sugar Boys Download, which has some gorgeous colours in the collection. I coloured my image with ProMarkers, with chalking to create the background then used a die to cut it out.  I added a ribbon, some corner dies, created a sentiment on my computer.  I don't very often distress papers, but it appealed to me this time so I inked and distressed the edges of my papers and the card was completed.
Cara ...This week everything for my card comes from the Girls Hoot download bundle.  There's so much in this bundle ... everything you need to make a whole card from scratch.
Kevin...I thought the Autumn colours would be great for a men's theme this week so I chose this handsome fella which is an Emma Canning digi. Emma has some great male themed images in the digistore...

Joanne- I just had to use the Anya digistamp for the Autumn colours challenge this week, I think her windswept look is perfect for Autumn :) I paired the image with a gorgeous backing paper from The Emma Canning animals and nature digi collection and added some ribbon and lace. I printed a sentiment and cut it out with my Cameo and had to add a silver, glittery lining to my cloud.
Sally - Hi there, for this week's challenge "Autumn Colours" I chose a black and white image from the Featherbird digi download. I printed it on cream and cut it out using a Spellbinders die and then used pan pastel "yellow ochre" around the edges. I mounted that on another Spellbinder die and used "orange extra dark" pan pastel around the edge to give it an aged look. Matted and layered brown, rust and cream cardstock for the background and mounted it on a dark brown card.  I then die cut two feathers and added a sentiment.
Susan -   3rd challenge already can you believe how fast the weeks are passing. For my card this week I have used Girls Hoot ,I just love this collection and the image is Libby Carefree by Nikky.
I have matted and layered using some chocolate mirror board ,the leafs and acorns are made with Martha Stewart paper clay and silicone moulds then covered with PanPastels  Metallic
Debbi - I have to say Autumn is my favorite season. I love the colours it brings. For my project I have made an Autumn wreath, using the incredible versatile Boys Hoot Bundle. The papers were the perfect colours to go with this weeks theme. I also added some Glossy accent to make the berries shine. And isn't the owl a such cutie? :)
So there is all the fab inspiration from the team - I'm sure you'll agree that they're all superb makes!
