The Face of Autumn

Autumn is drawing to a close for us in Australia...
shame really cause it's one of my favourite season's...
I've recently been involved in an ATC swap the theme was FACES, at first I thought "oh cool".... then I thought "oh.... WHAT DO I MAKE!" LOL! ..... and this is what I came up with....The Face of Autumn
Funky Bits I used are - 7 Gypsies PP, Making Memories Foam Stamp (you know I've had this foam stamp for years, never used it.... but now I really like it... It might just get another airing sometime soon), Lost Coast Designs Small Doll Face Stamp (this is a newbie :O) I like newbie's),
I made the paper I stamped onto using SU Cranberry Crisp, K&Co PP for the crown, tiny little auburn coloured crystals for the crown, Black Versa Ink & my sewing machine...
Thanks everyone for your concern about my ankle.... It's fine, nice and puffy, and a bit sore, and the bruise is starting to appear,
but really I'm quite blessed because it could have been far worse....

OMG...that foam stamp is my most fave foamy in all of the land of stamping and I looked and begged and pleaded forever to find it, in the end I gave up...but did ya know that on my Perth trip it was given to me as a belated Bday prez from a lady who had had it for years and never used it...I know I blabber on but I love it :)
