Midweek Magnolia's Mid-Week Reminder

Hello everyone how are you all? The weather is getting cooler isn't it? Will need to think about our winter quilt going on soon...........

Anyways my lovelies I'm here to remind you about the current challenge over at
  Midweek Magnolia's & the theme is............
...........I lurve autumn colours, all those browns........
Anyhoo's as soon as I started thinking about my card I knew instantly what papers to use & based it all then around that.........
I have used the GORGEOUS new Echo Park papers called 'Reflections Fall', oh the colours in there are so yummy :0)

I machine stitched the papers & inked the edges with walnut distress ink.

The pearls, lace & hessian are from my stash. The little fence is of course Magnolia's 'Lovely Fence' & I inked it up with a wee bit of walnut.

I've used an older Tilda as they get neglected & this one called out to me to use her, shes only ever been inked up once before bless her. This is 'Tilda In The Wind/Rain' from the Apples & Cherries collection. I coloured her with distress markers & paper pieced her dress & hat.

Of course inside is decorated as always. Most the flowers are from WOC. I've also added Magnolia Doo-Hickey 'Swirl & Leaf' dies. The sentiment tags are Little Darlings 'Tag Alongs'.

There is of course a week left to join in this challenge & we would love to see your fantabulous creations.

Well thats it from me I'm off to come visit you, sorry I've not been round have not been well but never mind will see yous soon.

Thank you for stopping by I sooooooooooo appreciate it.
Squishy hugs to all mmwah
