My First Blog!

First of all I would like to say thanks for visiting.
So here goes my very first blog AND my first challenge. I chose the Friday Mash Up challenge as I love the autumnal colours. 

At a recent training event I used the Magnificent Maple stamp and the Sweater Weather DP so here is what I came up with...

and this is what I used:

Magnificent Maple
Banner Greetings (Hostess)

Ink Pads
Crushed Curry
Early Espresso
Tangerine Tango

Whispa White
Tangerine Tango
Early Espresso
Sweater Weather DP

Naturals Designer Buttons
Candy Dots (Brights, Neutrals & Regals)
Distressing Tool

Happy Crafting!
