Beautiful Autumn Leaves

Welcome to my blog, The Diamond Dragonfly

Another fun, family friendly challenge with a wholesome sentiment, and ‘of course’ it’s “Anything Goes” as far as styles, or projects. 
This is our 155th   challenge.  We have a Facebook page, found here.
Thank you for taking time to showcase your wonderful creations with us.  
Congratulations to the winners from last week.  Once again, we had many beautiful entries. All your cards and projects are extremely beautiful and very inspirational.
This week has been “wet and rainy” once again. The Canada geese have taken over the farmers’ fields to feast on leftover grain. 
At home our five cords of wood are sodden, and as yet, still un-piled.
This artist mixed media book has been dressed up very simply for a young artist friend of mine. I have prepared her a few ATC's that she can draw on to give to her friends. It's a belated birthday gift.

This is my DT project for.........
Word Art Wednesday………………………….AG with a family friendly sentiment and theme

Simon Says ……………AG
Sweet  Stamps….AG
Party Time Tuesdays…….AG
Love to Create Challenge………..AG Fall Colors
There is a FREE digital word art each week, which you are welcome to use BUT it is not required. It is found on this page as well as here.

Thank you for stopping by.

If I were your friend, I couldn't ask for a better gift! I love how you've included your art, yet you've also given her those great ATC's that she can use for her art. It's truly the perfect combo and I like how the patterned paper you used on the book corresponds to the cards you made for her. It's quite an ingenious gift that I felt thoroughly inspired by. I'm sure she'll love it, too, and I'm so glad you shared it with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!

Lovely gift for a friend! I love autumn colors, drop leaves and all those things who make you think of the smell of nature during a walk in the wood!

This is such a stunning project Carole. I know your friend will treasure and appreciate this special gift.

I hope you are having a sunnier week and that you were able to get some of your outdoor work completed. It has been nice here. We had a few cold days (which I LOVED.) and is now back into the 70s. I can still take that. :) I like being able to open windows and let the cool air in.

Sending you many smiles.

Wow Carole this is a stunning art journal page. I just adore the warmness of autumn colours and those ATC are so special.
