FALLing for you - Stamptacular Sunday

The new challenge over at Stamptacular Sunday( ) is: 'FALLing for you'. You are supposed to use only Fall colours. I thought this birthday'card' that I made for my granddaughter's teacher, fits in perfectly.

She is in the Butterfly class, so the instructions were simple - my teacher likes yellow (lello) and orange and it MUST have a butterfly. Each child in the class was given a tag (I forgot to take photo's) and one of the mothers went in to school on a day when the teacher had to attend a meeting and had every child put her fingerprint on a tag. The fingerprints were turned into little girls by my daughter and the moms wrote a message on the back of the tag.

I made a box for all the tags and put an easel card on top. The stamp is a freebie digi stamp that I have had for ages. It was coloured with my copics. All the cardstock is Bazzil and all the flowers are from the local Chinese market. The sentiment was hand written.

My granddaughter spent the night last night because her parents attended a wedding. This morning I got a phone call from my SIL to tell me that my daughter had been admitted to hospital with a severe bladder infection. The possability is there that my grandson will be born early tomorrow morning. So I get to spend some more quality time with Tertia-Lee. Please say a little prayer that all goes well for mom and baby.

Have a fantastic week everybody. Hope to see you soon with some baby pics.


  1. Your "card" is fantastic! I was drawn to it when I was checking out the challenge. I really like the blogs that use the thumbnail prints, because unfortunately, most of us do not have time to check out every card. I hope to enter a card a little later. Hugs, dj
