Mam loves to see him and he just melts our hearts he is a busy little fellow and fully walking now. My poor Mams cat "Jess" darts out of the room as soon as she sets eyes on Jack to which Jack thinks it is one big game called scare the cat wittless ha ha!

Anyway here is our beautiful little fellow twinkling his blue eyes at you all.

Posting a Letter to Santa Girl

I decided to use one of the newly released Digital Stamps by Just Inklined for today's card, I know that many of us have now started our Christmas Card making and this one is perfect for Children, what I love about this Letter to Santa Girl image is that we also have it as a boy so you can sort out the card layout and then make a batch for Children/Grand Children and not be stuck for gender.
Image is coloured with Copic markers and a bit of Stickles for the snowflakes in the image, I used the Cuttlebug die and emboss snowflake and a couple of snowflake punches, i even sorted the background paper for you as they are free to use on my Jak Heath Designs page.

Isn't Nature Wonderful?

We took a stroll through dene on Sunday afternoon to get some practice in with the new camera, It must be 15 years since I actually went down the dene and infact my Mam and Dad often took my two girls and their dog down there for a stroll.

We hadn't been far into the dene when we came across a squirrel so we were quite chuffed, they really move through the trees but we managed to get a couple of pics.

We were soon deep into the dene going far further than I could remember and we got taking to the game keeper, he led Chris down to the river to take a couple of shots of funghi on the trees it was very muddy so I followed carefully carrying the camera case and the tripod.

Then it happened, I slid on the mud going backside over boobs and landed on the muddy floor skidding along the bottom, actually it was my bottom much to the delight of young walkers Chris and the game keepers dog which thought it was some sort of game I was playing, when I did come to a halt and try to scamble to my feet as if nothing had happened, Chris asking through chuckles, are you alright? yes says I lying through my teeth so not to make any further seen, so I'm now sporting a sore and tender backside.

On the good side I brought much entertainment to all the Sunday afternoon walkers.

Come and take a walk with me through the dene it's beautiful.

The squirrel that hops from branch to branch making crackling sounds in the trees.

And stopping politely to pose for a picture.

A branch that has a little magical forest all of it's own.

A single Ivy vine stretching it's arm up through the tree to find a bit of sunlight.

A single red leaf is the sneak peek reminder that autumn is on it's way.

To the Funghi growing on fallen rotton trees.
I hope you've enjoyed the walked through the dene with me.

Wonderous Gift

Ohh I enjoyed making this one, I masked of the square with a lowtack masking tape then blended the navy ink with a sponge and then stamped the tree from Stampin Up (Wonderous Gift) in the same navy ink. I then left the masking tape in place and sprayed inside the square with Crafters Companion Glitter spray, it is very quick drying.
I then removed the tape and scored around the square to create a border, added a few white pearls to the tree, stamped out the sentiment from the same set and added a few blossoms and leaves.

This close up shows you just how sparkly the glitter spray is.

The only down fall to it is you either need to go outside to spray or make sure you are in a well ventalated room.
