**** 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

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Thanks for stopping by today. I hope you can drop by the blog and see the fabulous creations from my team mates.  They are really worth the visit..and play along with us if you can.

**** Rubber Stamps & Ribbon ***

 Hello folks,

It's the second week of August..and the summer is going by so quickly.
We finally had a good downpour yesterday which was welcomed by the grass and gardens. 
 It's been so hot and dry I'm not going to complain.  

It's time for a new challenge at

The Cutie Pie Challenge #174

where we would like to see some cute projects that use Rubber Stamps and Ribbon

Sponsored by the wonderful

Crafty Ribbons

I've used a Penny Black older rubber stamp, coloured with Copics  
The sentiment is an acrylic stamp from MFT.  
Ribbon treatment on the bottom and buttons from my stash.

 I think this will make a good anniversary card.

Thanks for visiting today.
Hope you get a chance to stop by the blog
 and be inspired to pull out those rubber stamps and ribbons.
