Stamptacular Sunday Challenge 30: It's Fall Y'all

This week's challenge over at Stamptacular Sunday Challenge is to create a Fall (Autumn) themed card or project.  Our sponsor this week is Shaz at Funky Fairy, who has donated the PINKIE POPS DOWNLOADABLE KIT for our prize:

I decided to follow my Whimsy DT 'sistah' Debbie's tutorial that she has posted over at the Whimsy Stamps SNR group for the Whimsical Wednesday Challenge #3, and make an Image Swap Folder.  This has been made especially for one particular person, and I have filled it full of stamped images that I know she'll love!  This very good crafting buddy has been known to visit my blog now and again (LOL!) so I'm sure she'll work out it's her when she sees this post!

I've used this adorable Whimsy Pet Friends stamp, coloured it with Whispers, and then inked around the edge with my trusty ... yep, you've guessed it ... Versamagic Wheat Dew Drop:

I used a mixture of papers for this (which, as you know, I don't usually do - too scared, so always go for papers from the same 'range'), and I really love the orange and brown theme:

I used 2 pieces of 6x6 paper (brown houndstooth), and so as this left a join in the middle of the back of the wallet, I adhered a scrap piece of some of the paper I used on the front to cover the join:

And finally I used two of the Whimsy Simply Said sentiment stamps (which are currently on special at only $3.50!)  to stamp a message inside:

I'm going to enter this into the following 2 challenges:

1. Allsorts Challenge Blog - Challenge 24 Furry Friends : They want to see your favourite furry friend on your creation.
2. Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Challenge 55 Orange + 1 Other Colour : I have used orange and brown as my colour theme.

Don't forget that we're holding our monthly BONUS FUN DAY at Stamptacular, so hop on over to the challenge site now to see how you can join in!

Thanks, as ever, for dropping by!

Hugs, Sem x
