**** 595 For a Child, Baby or Teen ****

 Hello folks, hope all is well.

A few sunny days forcasted this week which is always welcome. Great weather for taking a walk along the paths close to the lake but they have become a little hazardous due to the coyote population that has adapted so well to urban living here.  Time to get that whistle or better still walk on the main streets in town but oh that is not nearly as picturesque. 

Today starts a new challenge at

Fab'n'Funky Challenge #595

hosted by our wonderful Chris which is

For a Child, Baby or Teen"

I have made a card for my youngest Granddaughter who turned 19 on Sunday.  She danced from the age of 4 until going to University last September.  The background paper has a lot of gold which did not show up on the photo.

***Simply Cuties***

 Hello folks,

Lots of excitement around here today.  Crowds of folks (hubby and I included) gathered along the lake to view the Solar Eclipse this afternoon.  Even the schools in town were closed for the day.What a spectacular, once in a lifetime event. We were fortunate to meet a few astronomers with all their cameras set up.  They were projecting with their cameras the eclipse onto a screen.  Fascinating to watch.

On to my post today for which I am very late.    So sorry for my tardiness.

Today started a new challenge at

The Cutie Pie Challenge #193

with a theme of "Simply Cuties"

I've used a pre-coloured Hetty Clare digi and stamped the sentiment with MFT stamps.

**** a little more green****

 Hello folks,

Hope you are having a good weekend.

Winter winds blowing off the lake make it feel even colder than it is today. On my morning walk I noticed the large willow tree in the bay was beginning to bloom.  Signs of Spring always make me smile.

Today at the 

Sweet Stampin Challenge 

we would like to see some GREEN

I've chosen to make an easel Birthday Card using a lot of what I think of as Spring Green.
The flower circle is made with an old stamp from my collection, coloured with Copics and Glossy Accents added to give some shine.  The sentiment is a B Line Designs stamped in SU Tranquil Tide


I do hope you can play along with us. Stop by the blog and you are sure to be inspired. As always the girls have outdone themselves.
