Challenge 141

So wow has the fall flown by so far.   As I write this all the fieldwork is coming to an end and the trees are beautiful shades of Red, Yellow, Orange, Green, and Brown.  My favorite time of year is Fall and I love the crunch of leaves beneath my feet.  So your challenge this week is to use leaves and the beautiful fall palette for your creation.

We also are harvesting some new talent,  so if you would like to join the DT at CCC please place DT in the linkie behind your name.  We will be selecting a new DT member in the next couple of weeks from this weeks entries.


The sponsor for this week is Whiff of Joy!  Make sure to check out their site for the clearance stamps, will be going out of rubber, so last chance at some darlings! The prize this week will be Oakley with Bauble.
 I made some delish chocolate carmel cupcakes this weekend and made these cute boxes to put some of them in.  I stamped the little leaves with distressing ink by squirting a bit of several colors on a cosmetic sponge.  Then I cut the leaf with my new cricut.  Colored them with the sponge of colors, and stamped "my sweet friend" (Whiff of Joy) on them.  I tied hemp twine around box twice, tied on fork, and then the leaf.  Love how they turned out.  (boxes are from oriental trading)
