It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...in the case of my house, it smells like Christmas. Mince Pies are a staple and here is a small batch I made fresh out of the oven! I had to fight off the gannets to get a picture of actual pies instead of an empty tray! Some of them were damaged in the ambush!

Hi everyone- I'm still on holiday. I am having a lovely time. I start each day with a bike ride for some exhaustive exercise. Then it's been off to some beach, or boat trip to go snorkeling. Yesterday the highlight was seeing an eel cruising around for some breakfast. Normally I just see eels peeking out of some coral. The coolest thing was that I saw the eel susse out an octapus which then quickly jetted out from its hiding spot, followed by lots of ink squirted into the eels face. It was the National Geographic/Discovery tv channel live! I couldn't help but think of Finding Nemo and the little octapus who said "You made me Ink".
I've been seeing lots of my favourite sea animal, the Hawaiian Green Sea Turtle, otherwise known as a Honu in Hawaiian. Here is a shot I got with my underwater digital camera (my old cannon digital camera in an underwater housing).

On the ABC Challenge Blog we are featuring the letter "G". G is for glitter! Such a great embellishment for snowy wintery cards! Our Sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp. Such an awesome store you can buy just about anything you need!
It's hard to see in the picture, the white paper is covered in glittery swirls. I also used a glitter snow writer to add glittery snow effects on the scene.

Halloween is quickly approaching. Halloween just isn't complete with out black cats. I love black cats. If they cross your path it is considered bad luck in America, but good luck in England. Since I'm English, I'm going with the good luck!
This is one of my cats Kwinki doing her best Halloween decoration impressions. She is actually sitting on top of a curtain rod in my living room, and YES they had not been dusted for a while.
The product spotlight on Stamp and Create this week is Halloween. The challenge on Magical Mondays is also Halloween! Witches are considered magical!
I used the ever so cute Best Friends Sweet Pea Image by Elaine Cox. The was stamped and then cut out using the new Classic Diamonds Nestabilities. The card was accented with Say it in Crystals Black Vintage Swirl, Black May Arts 1 1/4 inch Silk Ribbon, and a cute cat charm.

Happy Wednesday! We are up to the letter "F" in the ABC Challenge Blog. This weeks challenge F is for Flowers and is also Fun if you ask me! The sponsor for this challenge Wild Orchid Crafts, could not be more appropriate. All of the roses on my card are from WOC. I am in love with their flowers and they ship worldwide. I placed a huge order and got it in less than 10 days! WOC is located in the United Kingdom and I am half way round the World in California. Shipping costs are very reasonable and they just reduced them 25%. They sell lots of other cool embellishments like pins and pearls, though I didn't want to go overboard and add them to my card. I needed to make sure you could still see the oh so cute Rosie Rabbit by Stampavie. The current Stampavie challenge #34 is to you die cuts. I used the new Lacey Squares nestabilites.
