Well good morning peeps hopefully this posted at 8 0'clock this morning whilst I am still lying in bed....fingers crossed that is!!!
Well how is your crimbo shopping doing?? I have 1 item but I've also got 3 reserved which get picked up next week I've had them pre-ordered since January....its these new Kinetic for the Xbox 360, hubby & boys want 1 each......boys & their toys lol. Other than that I have nothing I have however got all the money saved in the bank its just a matter of me actually physically moving my left & right hands on the keyboard to actually do some shopping!! On the internet of course I'm NOT venturing out there to do crimbo shopping, I know I will end up going through to the toon (Newcastle-Upon-Tyne) sometime soon but I'm gonna try my best get EVERYTHING online, including their blooming I-pads if I can lol.
Anyway enough of my gibble-gabble lets get on with what you have come here for because as you know its Saturday so you know what that means dont you..........................yayyyyyyyy

This week its the bosses turn to choose the theme/challenge....the fabulous Emma has set the theme of
'Forever Autumn'
You can interpret this however you it an Autumn image, colours, decide!!
The design team have come up with fabulously gorgeous creations this week pop over to the challenge blog to give them some love & see how talented the girls are.......NO!!! Dont go yet....wait til the end its gonna get good you havn't even seen the prize yet....& I'm gonna keep you in suspenspenders a ickle while longer.
Here is my wee Autumn Creation.......

This is 'Autumn Harvest Ride' its a digi image from Whimsy Stamps which you can get here & also the sentiment is from Whimsy's too. I brought a few of these horse digi images a while ago unfortunately I lost them when my hard-drive choked. So I went over there this week & replaced 2 of my digi images & this is 1 of them which I thought was perfect for my DT card this week.

I absolutely love this horse, I have a few of the rubber stamps as well which I am getting round to inking up, well I've inked 1 up lol. These are lovely to colour I must admit I was a bit nervous cus I'm not big on colouring animals & I've never coloured an horse before, but I'm quite pleased with my 1st effort its not bad.

Both the horse & the pumpkins have been coloured with Promarkers.

All the leaves are from my stash which I've had for long & ages lol.

This is to try & show you all the bling & gems I added, well its a very posh horsey, a girl has gotta have her ker-ching-bling!!!

Finale picture........
