**** Xmas in September ****

 Hello folks,

Hope your weekend is going well and that the sun is shining for you.

A little cooler here which I am happy for.  I went to the farmers market yesterday and bought way too much produce which means I will be busy cooking and baking. Hopefully I will get back into craft mode soon.  

Sweet Stampin Challenge

where our theme is "Christmas in September"

I was so happy with this theme as I desperately need to get my Xmas card stash started.
I've used stamps from MFT "Jingle All The Way" stamp set and dies on my slimline card today.
Whimsy Stamps dies used for the border.  Coloured with Copics

**** First****

 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

*** Father's Day / Masculine ***

 Hello everyone,

Hope you are all doing well.

Happy Father's Day weekend.  
Hubby had a fall last weekend so will be sporting two black eyes for the big day 
but all is well.   No broken bones which we are so thankful for.  CTScan at emergency showed no damage...so again, very lucky.  Stitches out on Tuesday so I'm sure he will be back to playing snooker soon. It's been nice having him home during the day, my routine can wait. 

Today starts a new challenge at  

Sweet Stampin Challenge

where we would like to see some Masculine makes. 

It's a great place to show us your Father's Day  makes so join us if you can.

I've used slimline paper from Whimsy Stamps, stamped HBDay using an acrylic stamp from MFT in Black Memento Ink.  Ballons are acrylic stamps from MFT, coloured with Copics and then die cut.
