Challenge #103 - Photo Insiration - Gorgeous Gina & Happy Birthday to Me

Hi everyone wishing you all a really great week-end sorry the post is a little late but I've had such a busy day preparing 4 different curries, Bombay potatoes & mushroom bhaji for 8 people. I had this notion that seeing as my grandchildren's other Grandma was still away to do a meal at mine save on babysitters & thought it might be a bit more relaxed, we had a meal out last week for my lovely girls & I also said it could be my Birthday meal too (how cheeky is that) but then caved in & decided to cook.
This weeks Challenge AT OSCC is Photo Inspiration By our poorly Gina (so get well soon) & is being sponsored by the people at Robyns Fetish so why not pop along to join in with us & get a chance to win a lovely prize.
Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps And More is happy to offer the winner of this challenge 5 digital stamps, or 4 digital stamps and 1 digital paper set of their choice.
I have used some freebie papers which are my minds eye, Nitwits papers from the Gingerbread & blossombuds collections, Roses & ivy leaves from my friend Jane also the pearls too (cheers Jane) and the cute image is Penelope Puppy from Robyn's Fetish which I coloured in using my Promarkers.

This is the lovely Photo Inspiration picture we had to work from such lovely colours, so it's not hard to come up with some really stunning cards. Hope you'll join us and let your imagination run loose.

Challenge #102 - Halloween

Sorry I have not posted a challenge card this week but it's not my week & I've been a bit Flu-ish & had a couple of gifts to make for my girls, what with all this & working as well I was feeling like I'd been run over by a tank. Anyway I wanted to show my support to Francesca by posting this so if you want to join in you know what the theme is and to say there is a prise of 7 Digi Stamps from Tiffany Doodles.

Darling Happy Anniversary

Before I start to do my Challenge I would like to wish my Darling a Happy 34th Wedding Anniversary & yes I've had all the comments about how I could have been released if I'd committed a robbery etc.
Week # 101- Creative Carrie - Alter IT.
This week is it's our lovely Carries turn to pick her challenge & she chose to have an Altered week, this is not my forte & unlike my friend Lorraine AKA Cat Spicer I'm not doing the happy dance haha and have been really bashing my head to think of something so here it is. I bought a bag of mixed Lampwork Beads & watched the lovely Carla Cam from Aunties beads for inspiration & this is it (sorry about the 1st photo). This is a gift for my daughter & I will soon be making some earings to go with this, I am really pleased with it as it is the first bit of jewelery to go on display.

My September Mystery

Good morning everyone even though it's very wet & horrible weather I have a little mystery maybe someone may be able to help me with?
This is what I woke up to yesterday.
For the last 5-6 years at the end of September I get these little beauties in my garden usually there are only two but this year I have three they just pop up when you forget to look for them, what I would be interested in knowing is are they poisonous? With having two small children most week-ends I wouldn't want them to find them before me as they have grown in a different spot this year & the biggest one is nearly as big as my hand (look at the bar-be-que tongues) for a rough guide.
