I love Fall in the Springtime!

Well it is Spring here but I’m celebrating Fall with our friends in the Northern Hemisphere.
Tee @ The Altered Paper hosted another Tag of the Month swap and Fall was the theme.
My partner Carol (no blog) sent me two of the cutest tags .... 
 and some lovely goodies....
I looked everywhere for a maple leaf stamp and look what Carol sent me, she must have a sixth sense!
And here's the card I sent Carol, little hearts falling..
I sent extra goodies too but I forgot to take a photo :-(

Thank-you Carol for being a wonderful swap partner!!

The gorgeous spring weather on Saturday got us out of the house and upto Repulse Dam for a lesson in fly fishing, my son picked it up easily but no fish were harmed during the lesson ( i.e we didn't catch any)
Isn't the scenery beautiful?

...and even Lucy enjoyed a little dip in the freezing cold water
I wish everyday was a beautiful!

Bags and Paper

Remember this swap I took part in a few weeks ago here? Well it's about time I share a photo of the sweet bag made by De for me
(Photo bloglifted from De's Site)
A lovely spotty tote, with a doily embellishment and the cutest flower trim from Inn Country, one of my favourite shops. Thank-you De!

This week saw me posting packages to the US including one for an altered denim pocket in a Halloween theme and stuffed full of goodies, plus an Alphabet ATC for "B" and a Tag for the tag a month swap in a Fall theme. I can't show you those yet as they're a surprise.

 Also last week I received an extra Alphabet ATC from a new comer to the group, Kamali, look at her lovely work
Thank you Kamali!
And also my "A" ATC from Amy Arrived in a gorgeous Alice in Wonderland Theme
plus Amy also included a bundle of extras, these will not go to waste! 
Thank you Amy!

So what's installed for me for the rest of the week?.... an assignment, I'll get through it eventually.
Happy Stitching and Scrapping everyone

ATC extra A

Tee from The Altered Paper asked if I could make another 'A' ATC for a new gal who wanted to join the monthly alphabet ATC swap. This is the card I created except just before I posted it I added the word 'wings' under angel

This went to Kamali (no blog) , I'll show you next time the gorgeous card Kamali made for me.

It's absolutely freezing in Tassie tonight, i wouldn't be surprised to see snow in our backyard in the morning. Perfect weather for locking myself away with my computer to do a uni assignment which is due next week, so no distractions please, don't go posting beautiful pictures, I need to focus!
