More Aviary

Howdy all,
Well  I mentioned in the last post  I had made a couple of cards using the Aviary Stamp set but in fact I had made three, so as promised I am back with the others to show you...
This one was with the colours Poppy Parade, Crumb cake and Not Quite Navy

While this one I used Real red, Crumb cake and believe it or not that is Bashful blue, sorry the lighting is really bad as we have had no sunshine here for over a week now, but I am not complaining as we need the rain and it's good on the sorghum!

Thanks for stopping by

Long time between drinks

Hi all,
Yes I am still alive lol .... I know it has been along time between drinks so to speak but I do have a few good reasons for you to forgive me.
The end of last year was a big one for us as as we had 3 children at 3 different schools which meant three lots of all those end of year activities, plus 2 of them were graduations.
I will start at the top... Our oldest Boy Jake graduated from year 12 at Toowoomba Grammar School,
Here is a pic of him and his lovely little girl Tessa on there way to the Formal...
We are so very proud of him and now he's off to Uni to study Engineering, Boy it sure makes you feel a bit old when they start leaving school.
Next the youngest Boy Mitch graduated from Grammar Junior, and is now off to Senior school...
In which I can inform you he is settled in great and loving it.
Then the youngest Em finished year 5 and went into year 6 at our little local school in which this will be her last year there before she too is off to the big smoke next year.
So you can see with all those end of year concerts and dinners etc that keep us very busy leading up to Christmas, then the festive season flew by as usual, but this year I also had the treat of spending time with relatives from Longreach which doesn't happen very often, so that was lovely.
Also leading up to and straight after Christmas is our busiest time on the Farm, so amongst it all I had to slip on the work boots and help Hubby with our winter harvest of wheat and planting of our summer sorghum crops which I might add for the first time in a few years Mother nature is being kind to us and they are looking really good.
Then it was a quick get things ready for the new school year with all that dreaded book covering and shoe buying etc... before we then headed off on our annual trek to beach for a few weeks...
Which was just what the doctor ordered to get over all the goings on.
Home again and straight back into the new school year, so with all the Children settled back this week I finally had time to dust off those much neglected stamps and get them inky again and update this poor old neglected blog.
So after all that I had better show you some of what you are really here for...

For this one I have used the Aviary Stamp set and the colours River rock, Cherry Cobbler and Marina Mist.
I did make a couple in this combo but will save the other one to show you later in the week.
So there you have it.... I hope you all enjoyed your silly season and summer Holiday's as much as I did mine.
Until next time
Happy Stamping
