Happy Sunday Dear Friends,
Yet another week has gone by, and it is time for ourStamptacular Sunday Challenge, this week our theme is "Fall-ing for you", which means having to create a project all about Love in fall colors... Actually, this was not a challenge at all for me: Fall is my favorite season, colors of fall are colors of my heart, and Love... Well, that's what life is all about, isn't it? I knew right away I had to use this wonderful Magnolia Stamp, Brother and Sister, from the Cozy fall collection. I don't see her right now at Magnolialicious, but I am sure Diana will make it available pretty soon. Back to my card, I chose this wonderful paper by Creative Memories (I forgot the name of the collection, since it is quite old), and inked it with Distress inks: Brushed Corduroy and Walnut Stain! I am walnutstaining every thing these days... I used Cricut Lacy labels cartrige to cut this cute window, I embossed the top pannel with Glossy Accent. The lovely jute ribbon is gift I received from a dear friend. I bought the little key charm and the cute frame in a Dollar Store! The bead and little stone heart are from my stash, as well as the chain, the nice fall leaves are from Prima. Tilda and Edwin are colored with Copics, on Cryogen White (love all the sparkles). Of course, you understood that Edwin and Tilda don't only hold on to each other, they hold the key to each other's heart! All those earthy soft and warm colors translate the love they have for each other... One can also imagine that the writing in background is a love letter... OK, OK, I am falling in a romance... OH! this theme is absolutely fantastic, it opens the door to imaginary romance... I can't wait to see what you will create.
I thank you from the bottom of my heart to visit me, comment my work and encourage me to go on and discover/experience all kinds of techniques. It is the sharing that creates this magic.

Bon dimanche chères amies,
Une autre semaine vient de se terminer, nous rapprochant ainsi de plus en plus de Noël... et c'est à nouveau le temps du défi de Stamptacular; notre thème est "fall-ing in for you" un jeu de mots savoureux qui n'a aucun équivalent français puisque "Fall" veut dire autome, mais c'est aussi le verbe tomber! Donc, je dirais qu'en français notre thème serait: "je craque pour toi", le tout illustré dans des teintes d'automne! Ce n'est pas un défi pour moi, c'est ma zone de confort! J'adore les couleurs chaudes de l'automne, facile de se laisser inspirée. Je suis directement allée chercher cette merveilleuse étampe de Tilda et Edwin, Brother & Sister que j'adore. J'ai choisi des papiers de Creative Memories, dont je n'ai pas la collection puisqu'elle date de plusieurs années. J'ai fait la découpe avec cette fantastique cassette appelée Lacey Labels. J'ai enduit le motif avec du glossy accent, et le fond est encré à la Distress, en Brushed Corduroy et Walnut Stain. Dernièrement, je "walnutstain" à peu près tout! Le magnifique ruban de jute est un cadeau d'une amie très chère, le rafia est de mon inventaire, les feuilles de Prima. J,ai trouvé la petite breloque "clé", le petit cadre et le petit coeur de pierre chez Dolorama (incroyable ce qu'on y déniche); la petite chaine et l'oeil de tigre sont de mon inventaire. L'étampe en coeur, à l'intérieur, et le sentiment sont de Hero Hart. Tilda et Edwin sont coloriés avec des Copics, sur papier Cryogen White. C'est un thème d'amour, alors ils ne sont pas seulement enlassés, mais ils possèdent chacun la clé de leur coeur! J'imagine même que l'écriture sur le papier de fond est une lettre d'amour, OH! lala je deviens romantique...
Ce thème est fantastique, et ouvre la porte à l'imaginaire, j'ai hâte de voir ce que vous allez créer.
Merci de vos nombreuses visites, de vos commentaires merveilleux, qui me comblent et m'encouragent à me dépasser, à relever le défi.

I will enter my card in the Cute Card Challenge No. 140 Blast from the past ( #129, Playing on words,September 9.)

Danielle Champagne just sounds French don't you think? You make such elegant cards - I guess it must be all that French Culture. The card is beautiful - and the work around Tilda and Edwin looks like basrelief- gorgeous. And the charms dangling down lead you right inside which is like a fairytale. Nice artwork.
