****Blue, blue and more blue****

 Good morning everyone,

Hope all is well with you and yours.

Beautiful sunny fall day today here. The fall foliage this year has been the best in over 20 years we are told and I have to agree.  They have been absolutely gorgeous and with the warmer weather they have lasted for several weeks, an unexpected treat. 

Today starts a new challenge at

Fab'n'Funky Challenge #560

where I am hosting and have chosen the theme

"Shades of Blue"

I have used a new die "Stylized Angel" from Simon Says Stamp as the focal point that is becoming my favourite image for this year's Christmas cards because it can be used so many ways.  I've been wanting this one for quite some time and am so happy I gave in and ordered it as I know it will be used a lot.







Blue paper from StampinUp, white glitter paper is from Simon Says Stamp.
There is shiny royal blue paper matted behind the white which I'm afraid does not show very well.
Sentiment cut using a die from QuicKutz in the shiny paper as well.

Thanks so much for stopping by today.
Hope you can join us the next two weeks, we'd love to see your blues

 Hello everyone,

The weather is perfect for us this weekend...25 deg.C and NO humidity...yeah!
Hope it will be a good weekend for you as well

Today starts a new challenge at

Sweet Stampin Challenge

where the theme is "Firsts"

With my family and friends all older now there are not too many requirements 
for celebrating "Firsts"  so I decided to take a different spin on the "First" and applied it to my stamping.

For my card today I've used a few Lavinia Stamps that have been in my collection for over a year and not seen ink....until today.   This is the first time I've created with these stamps.


The background is from Lavinia. 
I stamped the fairy, rabbit and tree, also from Lavinia
Sentiment is a stamp from MFT
