A very good morning to everyone, hope you are having a good weekend.

Thought I would do a swift post before I head to the kitchen to carry on preparing for the family invasion. Some arrived yesterday and slept over so we presently have eight dogs scattered throughout the house and when I looked out just now there was a horse tacked up standing on the patio with a head through the conservatory door, so all as normal here in Fantasy Land.

I had planned a barbie, but it actually seems as thought we are going to have some rain today, so opted for safety and have an Italian hunters stew simmering away, a mega sized chicken ready to hit the oven and veggie lasagna half prepared so all should be well fed.

The card at the top of my post is one of my Stamp Addicts samples using the Children at Play set which were featured on Create and Craft Thursday. Stamped with Brilliance ink over a background stamped with Hero H2365. And and the one just above is a Stampalot sample using about eight different Art Impression stamps over a brayered and sponged background where I used the good old Speedball and Adirondack dye inks.

Hi B,hope you've had a lovely family day. Such lovely cards but I expect nothing less when I call by! How I'd love to come to your get together that you posted the other day,I'd love to learn speedball tips direct from the Queen herself!
On to another matter,a lovely blogger helped me with our commenting problem,I've been able to comment all evening without trouble. You need to UN-tick the "Keep me signed in" box,for some reason,this has solved all the problems,it even says I'm signed in when on my blog now so fingers crossed it works for you too! Hope you are fit and well at the mo,have a great week,Julie.x

Sounds like you have your hands full with family, I cannot imagine 8 dogs plus then humans as well! Hope you've all had an enjoyable time.
I do like the way you have used patterns papers & then used those colours in the silhouette - really striking. The second is just great with the birds flying across the moon & all the testure of the lake.
Hope you don't get overly tired.
Much love
