Lemon/Lime at the Alphabet Challenge





Today's Challenge at The Alphabet Challenge is L for Lemon/Lime and was chosen by me. 

When I chose this Challenge I had something totally different in mind, then despite searching for my stamp couldn't find it anywhere. I did find free papers from Making cards in gorgeous tropical shades so decided on tropical cocktails. I found loads of free images on - line and combined a few to create the topper.

Christmas Deer



The whole family spent the weekend together for the first time since last Christmas,  visiting the West Coast of Scotland, travelling through some beautiful countryside on our journey from the East Coast. On Sunday we took a return trip on the Jacobite Express "The Harry Potter Train" from Fort William to Mallaig travelling in a six seat First Class Compartment I remember these  from my childhood and it brought back many fond memories. The journey over the Glenfinnan Viaduct was spectacular, you can see the leading part of the train on it from further back on the train. My sons both filmed the journey but I forgot to ask them for some pics of the viaduct. The pics below are of Loch Laggan. 






A Christmas card just for the fun of it today, image and papers from the Making cards Christmas Special 2016, poinsettia die by Tattered Lace.

Thank you to everyone for visiting and the comments you leave, I appreciate the time you take to do so.

Christmas Tags








Two Christmas tags today, for special friends. I like to make gift tags to match their card, and wrapping paper, so this stamp from Power Poppy was ideal, their gifts will hopefully fit into Kraft bags which I will stamp with this little chap.  Stamp coloured with Promarkers and lots of odds and ends used, remnants of paper and a poinsettia made from a table rose petal from a wedding.

Thanks for visiting I appreciate all your comments and the time you take to leave them.
