Hope all is well.   September has been a beautiful month for us here. Cool mornings and evenings with plenty of warm sunshine during the day.  I have to admit, Fall is becoming one of my favourite seasons. Word is out that we are to expect a lot of snow this on that note I have made a snowy Christmas card.

*** Doodle, doodle ***

 Hello folks,

It's time for a new challenge at

Sweet Stampin Challenge

where we have the theme of  "Doodling"

 I began by doodling a "tree"but not so sure now..think it looks like a giant dandelion seed.  So much fun with this one,  I used some Lavinia's stamps to create a scene and then doodled the frame.  Tim Holtz Distressed Oxide inks used to create the background. The sentiment is made using an alphabet punch.

Dinner at our daughters tonight.  We will be sending our granddaughters off to Uni. and they will be missed so much.   So very proud of the beautiful, confident young women they have become. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Try it On Tuesday - Lets Go Outside

Thanks for visiting today.
Stop by the blog and see the amazing "doodling" done by the team.  You are sure to be impressed.
