Simon Says .... "Give Thanks"

Thank you for coming over to visit my blog - I hope you find something you like. The weather is definately changing here in this part of Scotland. Heavy frosts in the morning and a distinct chill in the air. Nothing else for it but to turn on the craftroom radiator and snuggle up with my goodies and get creative.
For this challenge for Simon Says the theme was "Give Thanks" and I decided that peach would be the order of the day so I chose as my image Magnolia's "Peachy Tilda", coloured as usual with my Copic Ciaos (still no sign of my refill inks in the mail - I'm beginning to get a bit concerned). The striped paper is from Rayher Hobby Gmbtt and I don't have a name for the other one I'm afraid although I thought it went well and was quite pretty. I made the flowers from scratch and the other embellies are from my stash. I quite enjoyed this one because I wasn't working from a sketch and had to come up with the layout on my own. I hope you like it enough to leave a comment for me. I do enjoy reading them and it's nice to know who is visiting my wee blog. I hope your day goes well for you.
Hugs,
