That went quick!

Can't believe a month has gone by since my last post! Already I'm almost at the end of my first term in the new job, and this week we have the keys to our new house! Just got to get our stuff moved up from Notts and then we can move in! I can't wait!

Anyway, being the first of the month, it's time for a new Stampalot Challenge and for October the theme is

Food, Glorious Food

So anything to do with food is what we want to see on your entries! And there's a scrumptious prize on offer, generously donated as always by Janice & Andy at Sir Stampalot. Feast your eyes on these goodies!

I decided to use some recently acquired stamps by Waltzing Mouse for my sample. I made my own background paper with the plaid stamp from the "Off Beat Backgrounds" set. The label stamp, which is made to fit a Nesties Label 4 die, is from the "Rescue Remedies" set, one of my Waltzing Mouse favourites. The little corner stamp is from the "Very Vintage Labels No. 2" set. The floral paper and cupcake stamp are magazine freebies. I paper pieced the cupcakes and added a bit of colour with Promarkers.

Sorry this is such a short post, but I'm hoping it won't be long now before we get moved in to the new house and I'll be back in business in my new craft room! Watch this space!

Lovely to see you Lynne and I'm glad things are going well with the new job and house move. It must have been a hectic Summer for you.

Good Luck with everything.

I'm so glad to hear you're enjoying everything about being up in Scotland Lynne. Your craft room view certainly is beautiful and very condusive to creativity I would imagine....... unless there's too much going on in Mother Nature's garden to distract you, lol!

I hope everything continues to move smoothly for you and that you are soon happily ensconced in your new home.

Love the card. That plaid background stamp is brilliant and the Waltzing Mouse label stamp is lovely.
