Fall Fun with Aud Sentiments Challenge blog

My second post for today, please scroll down and check out my previous card. I have been having issues with my crown which goes across my top 4 teeth. It came loose after being there for 6 years and now I am having to wait to sort it out over 3 weeks. He did some work on it Monday and put it back on with temporary glue. I had a 2 1/2 hour singing rehearsal that night and it didn't feel right, another rehearsal Tuesday night and by Wednesday I could feel it slipping in my mouth. Aagh, have been out to the pictures today instead of having our regular craft afternoon and it is completely moving around and I am constantly pushing it back into place. I have to wait till next Monday for some further work on it so I am crossing my fingers it doesn't fall off altogether over the weekend or I'll have to hold my hand over my mouth when I speak etc. Might have to stay housebound, lol. It's not a pretty look as it took some of my original teeth with it when it came off..... Anyway, back to sharing my card for the new challenge at Aud Sentiment Challenge this fortnight, at least I can craft without teeth!!!!
The theme is Fall Fun + a sentiment and our sponsor is  - The Paper Shelter. I used this wonderful image which comes with a background for putting inside your card or using on the front, some pre-coloured images and also some line images to colour yourself. I used a pre-coloured one.
Here is what I come up with using one of the images they provided. Mine looks different in colour from some of the other DT cards and I think that just comes down to the different printers that my fellow teamies and I have used. Mine is not quite so vibrant which was a bit disappointing.

I've printed the pre-coloured image out 4 times and made it into a 3d picture.

SU Pumpkin Pie cardstock
SU Baked Brown Sugar cardstock

Sentiment is a freebie on the challenge blog from our own Ginny H
Die - Marianne Die - LRD242

Challenge #138 at 613 Avenue Create

Hi everyone, it's been a lovely day so far, threw a couple of loads of washing on the line, went to church ( didn't sing in the choir today as I'm still coughing), back home and had toasted cheese sandwiches and I'm off soon to go with a friend to Copic Club at our local craft store. It's really just a get together with other copic users, the lady that runs it draws us a couple of images and helps us with any queries and tips. I thought I had better type this up and schedule because I may still be at class when it needs to be posted. Well, our challenge this week at 613 Avenue Create  is Anything Goes with the optional twist of Girl's Night Out. Make something that goes with your ideas of a Girl's night out!!!
Our sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps, we did have another sponsor but there was a bit of a mix up with images so I have used one of my own stamps and gone with the Anything Goes Theme.
Here is my card....... 

I've paper pieced the hat, flower, dress and handbag.

SU Rich Razzleberry cardstock for the cardbase and matte
White Card from stash for the image
SU Tempting Turquoise cardstock for the punched circle and diecut flourish
DP is from a freebie booklet of paper (came with a magazine purchase)
Image and sentiment are from Close to my Heart stamp set -Better with a Friend (Hostess set)
Die Cuts - Nestie ~ Curved Rectangles
              - Memory box ~ Elegant Scrollwork ( I cut this into sections and used either side of my image)
D/S tape roller
Foam Dots

I am entering my card into the following challenges: (back later with some)

We would love to see you stopping by the challenge blog and entering one of your fabulous makes. You could be next week's winner or featured as a favourite entry. My teamies and I would appreciate you stopping by our personal blogs and leaving a comment if you have time.

A sleeping baby Challenge 73 at Crafting From the Heart

Good afternoon, another cool, drizzly day today after yesterday's sunshine. The only real day of sunshine for quite a while and would have been perfect to catch up on some washing but no......we had the power out all day due to the overhead wires on the main road being put underground instead. We've had months of road work in the lead up to this event and I've had enough. Our road has been closed off at the top end more often than it's been open so let's hope this in the end of it!!! Ok enough moaning and I will get on and share my DT make for Crafting From The Heart Challenges. Our sponsor this week is QKR Stampede and I got to use this sweet image
Here is my card.....

Time once more to say goodbye, I have our 3 oldest grandchildren here, all home from school with colds as Mum and Dad(who is also sick) are working. I had the youngest granddaughter staying overnight last night and also all day today and she is grumpy, so 4 to watch over and I'm still coughing  although I am pretty much over the bug I had. Halle is sitting in the high chair next to me as I just can't type with her grizzling on my knee, so, lol, I am plying her with small gingerbread people while I get on with this!!!
My fellow teamies and I would love to see what you come up with this week, so please pop into the challenge blog and use Mr. Linky.

Challenge 5 at Crafty Girlz Challenges

Good evening and welcome to my blog today. Another long day with an early start being up at 6a.m. We drove to our daughter's house to pick her and our little granddaughter up and then drove down south for about 1 1/2 hours to go to an auction and visit friends. It drizzled rain on and off which wasn't great as it is an outside event, Rachel bought a few bits and pieces, enough to fill the trailer and then we went back for lunch with our friends. We spent a pleasant afternoon with them and have just arrived home, unpacked the trailer and as soon as I've typed and posted this I came make tea and relax. I had a late night too yesterday so maybe an earlier than usual evening for me or just a veg out in front of the tv.
Well, I will get on and share the details of our new challenge starting today at Crafty Girlz Challenges. The theme is Anything Goes or you can play the twist of Lazy Days. Our sponsor this month is Deedee's Digis and I used a precoloured image for my card.
