Get your scissors out, girls and boys, this week our challenge for you is to create  in autumnal colours ... I know easy, huh?   And we have two sponsors... this means two prizes for random winners!

Our challenge this week is sponsored by MelJen's Designs, who continues to delight us with magical images! Our MelJens prize is 4 uncoloured images.  Here's a little about Meljens Designs...

"My name is Melissa Jenkins and I have been an artist as long as I can remember.... I am inspired by everything around me.  Art is an uplifting thing for me, ad I love designing cute tidbits of art that make people smile. I draw all of my little creations by hand.  A lot of love goes into my art!  Each of my designs is sketched in pencil, inked with a black Micron pen, then scanned in and lightly cleaned up so it will look crisp when you print it.  I love inspiring crafters.  I am not very talented at making cards myself, so I LOVE seeing all of the beautiful things that you make with my digital stamps.  I couldn't ask for  a better blessing!"

And we are excited to have another sponsorship visit from Oak Pond Creations! At Oak Pond, you'll find wonderfully hand drawn images.. all created by Kimberly Hecker, from great inspiration!

One randomly drawn winner will receive their choice of two (2) digital images from   Oak Pond Creations  ... and another randomly drawn winner will receive their choice of Four (4) uncoloured digital images from MelJen's Designs ...

We're so happy to showcase our sponsor's designs, and we hope that we can provide a little inspiration for you!  Feast your eyes this-a-way...
