New Challenge at Lavinia Stamps....

Hi-di-hi's ages since I blogged, so hope you're all still with me ;-)
We had a fab holiday in Morocco, and came home refreshed and ready to crack-on with stuff that we've been putting off for decorating, clearing the garden, going for long walks with Finn.....all those things that are better done in Summer of course, but we just didn't have time then...hey-ho!
 I'm also gonna have more time to craft now, as we've employed a full-time manager in the pet shop, and I don't need to go in 3 days a week...yeah!
Anyway, onto this month's challenge at LAVINIA STAMPS...
the theme is AUTUMN COLOURS.
As usual, the prize is a whopping £40 to spend on Lavinia products, and you don't need a blog to enter, we also take email entries. 
You need to use Lavinia products to enter, so grab your stamps, and get busy....
I've made a couple of tags this month...hope you like them.
On this tag I've used the stamp
  Nigela Damascena
 one of the tiny star stamps, a sentiment,
and loads of copper embossing powder and spray inks 
This tag uses the same spray inks
with the Zen, large mushroom house,
and a couple of the foliage stamps.

I absolutely LOVE the Autumnal colours, but I don't like Autumn very's because no matter how pretty the colours are, the trees are closing down for Winter and everything is dying.
Anyway, not much we can do about it, so may as well just enjoy the colours, and look forward to CHRISTMAS!!! 
Catch you all soon,
Barbara x
