Lawn Fawn - Plus One

Good evening all.

This is a rare week as I am only working 1 day (been "forced" to take some holiday) and that means I have some time to be creative. It's also a chance to spend more time with my kids and I am so happy that James (18) has gotten a part-time job. Ben (21) is going back for his final year at University but he has also got a part-time job.

My card today is for my niece who is expecting her first baby. She and her husband currently live in Aberdeen as he has a job working as a helicopter pilot for the oil industry. My sister is over the moon at becoming a granny. This will be the first baby in the family since my Phoebe (8).

Avery Elle Stamps - Let it snow!

Good evening all.

Well, it seems a little silly posting a Christmas card today when the weather has been so glorious but if I don't start now it'll be New Years Day before I know it. 

Really busy with work all summer, kids being off school and haven't had much time to enjoy crafting but now that the kids are back I am finding a little time (and I mean very little) time to craft.

I am entering this card into Make the Day Special challenge.

Little Miss Muffet Stamps - Feline sitting

Good morning all.

You know the moments when your camera has run out of batteries and you search the whole house from top to bottom (and in every battery driven device) only to discover that there are absolutely none?! Well, that's the reason this is a little late and my sincere apologies.

However, just wanted to let you know that there is still time to participate in the latest challenge at Little Miss Muffet. Head over to the blog for all the details and some yummy DT inspiration.

If you still need even more LMM goodies we also have a lot of fun on our FB page which I recommend for news, competitions and more.

I have yet again made an ATC (getting an addiction) and I have used this cute little kitten.

Little Miss Muffet Stamps - pdp Ellie

Good morning all. 

I have always been a huge fan of the owner of Little Miss Muffet Stamps, Barbara. Her colouring is stunning, she dares to take risks and she is always full of inspiration. Her fabulous blog can be viewed HERE (make a huge mug of coffee first and a packet of biscuits).

For this week's inspirational post and a reminder that our Anything Goes challenge is still running over at LMM challenge blog,  I wanted to share a new long-term project which I "borrowed" from Barbara's blog. She has started to make an ATC journal and as I love ATCs I thought I would like to do one for me. So watch this space.
Above is the little ATC I made and here is the page

I write the stamp name and date by each ATC and I can fit 2 on each page. There are no ATCs on the opposite page.

For more inspiration head over to the LMM facebook page. There is always something fun happening.
