Paperplay Challenge GDT and Autum is a coming!!

If you hear a scream it's me - the message below is the one I am repeatedly getting when I try to move around blog land and leave comments.


Service Unavailable

Error 503


Last week's the message was " Cannot connect........" . I am on my way and I will get to you - eventually, please be as patient as I'm trying to be.


***************************************

Now onto my GDT card for PaperPlay challenges

Now, on to this week's challenge, it's called "Autumn is a Comin'" - we would like to see work featuring Autumnal colour schemes.

We're sponsored by our regular sponsor Simon Says Stamp

Photobucket

and this week's winner will receive $15 to spend in the store!!



We seem to be having a 'mousie' this week, last week Tilda was everywhere.
I do love my mousies, they have such a zest for life, a love of living, they love their food and if they're not up to mischief they off on some new adventure, 
What else would you do in Autumn but collect fallen leaves and use the as parachutes - what a wonderful attitude towards life they have!!
These little chaps are coloured with Copics (far too many to mention), this is a huge stamp and  little room for embellishments. The papers are Basic Grey's Indian Summer and the silky leaves from my local supermarket. The sentiment, cut with oval nesties is Magnolia.


Autumn is definitely here in Germany, the temperatures have dropped and It's damp and misty. I love the Autumn colours and when it's dry and all the leaves crunch underfoot but I could well do without this wet stuff falling from the skies!!

If you listen carefully you'll hear a resounding echo from the Brecon Beacons in Wales - likewise when the page jumps up half way as I'm starting to type the comment IF it's not got the above image.............GRRRR I love this stamp - This is almost my favourite HM stamp - the one with the raindrops just gets in front. Love your whole creation here - the colours & detail being quite glorious & helping me feel less ambivalent about the change in weather.

Periodically the wretched machine roars at me...... & I jump half way across the room, but that gremlin is probably afflicting you also.....

This mouse image is cute! Love your coloring and the extra leaves for accent. It is still quite warm here (Michigan, USA) although we are experiencing cooler temps than of late. We had such a Hot summer. It will be nice for some cooler days. Have a great day.

Hi there Heather, l have been admiring your card, what fun those little mice are, love how you've coloured them. Thank you for dropping by my blog and your very kind comments. You're a very busy lady, so many challenges and DT posts, I can understand your frustration at not being able to get around and comment, not a lot of fun, hope that it's a bit better now. :) xx
