Getting Ready for Autumn

I got up this morning and turned on the News hoping to find that the 4 miners trapped in the Mine in Swansea had been rescued every one seemed so positive last night, but unfortunately that optimism has now started to wain,   I am keeping everything crossed that they will be rescued sometime today, in the meanwhile my thoughts are with the relatives.
On a lighter note today being Friday means its Just Magnolia & hAnglar & stAnglar Challenge, this week our Challenge was chosen by the lovely Jacque, she has given us a brill sketch to work with and also a theme  “Fall is in the Air “. 
I haven’t used this little Tilda before, but think the way her coat is swinging looks as if she is walking in the Autumn Winds.  Not my usual colours for this one but I am pleased with the results.  I have used Pion Papers from Dies to Die For and distressed the edges with Vintage Photo Distress Ink.  The Tag I have popped behind the image was a price tag from a Cardigan I bought earlier in the year, I knew it would come in handy.   The fabulous Gold Mesh Ribbon is from The Ribbon Girl, it is so easy to tie into a delicious bow I love it, it also comes in Silver.
The Leaves and Flowers have been cut with a Magnolia Doo Hickey Die available from Crafts U Love, I have distressed around the edges and added Gold Stickles around the edge of the petals.
I have posted below the winner of my Lili of the Valley Candy, Mum chose the number late last night so don’t forget to check if you have been lucky
Have a good day

Gorgeous Jackie the colours work so well. How long have you had the stamp in your stash before you have used it? Just wondered if you do what i do and forget what you have and they sit in a drawer for ages. or i may be making assumptions and its a new one. Louise xx
