Down By The Old Mill Stream

Isn’t that a cool name for this image?  I don’t think I could have come up with anything any better.  It’s time for a new challenge over at DDSC.  This week it is autumn colors.  Which shouldn’t be too difficult for anyone here in the northern hemisphere. 

Sadly I have to announce that this is my last challenge with the DDSC team.  I’m stepping down because of several health issues.  And I had to let something go.  I’m really going to miss it because because these are a fantastic group of very talented ladies and you couldn’t work with a greater team.  Also the images by Judy and Mom are top notch.

On the front of this card I’ve use an embossing plate by Cheery Lynn Designs with the leaves.  The die punch is by MS and one I’ve had for several years, but never had the  need to use it.  The stickers are brads are by various artists.  And of course, I’ve used my nestibilities.

I’m entering this in the following challenges:
Mark’s Finest Papers – use a punch
Crazy 4 Challenges – orange, olive, yellow, brown
Secret Challenge – song ( Down By the Old Mill Stream}
Sketch Saturday – sketch
Totally Gorjuss – for a man
I Did It – anything
Pile It On – layers
Creative Stamp Friends – for a man
Stamps R Us – friendship
Crafty Boots Challenges – anything
Lexi’s Creations – autumn
Digital Tuesday – any season
Simon Says Stamps Challenges - song - (Down By The Old Mill Stream)
Shelly's Images Blog - anything 
Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenges - fall
Digi Stamps 4 Joy - anything
Heidi's Hobbystuggu - anything

I hope you’ve enjoyed my work, and don’t forget to go by and check out what the rest of team have done.  They should inspire you joining in.
