Congratulations go to Judith as our featured artist this week and also to Trace as the winning commenter. Enjoy your prize.
Our youngest son went on a fishing trip with some friends and bought back fish for last night's meal. He didn't get home until 9 PM last night as they were about two hours away and had to drive back after cleaning and filleting most of the fish and cooking some for them to eat too. It was yummy salmon trout. Hubby took some over to the neighbour, one of our sons and a DIL came over and also a friend of our youngest son. There are two whole fish in the freezer and some fillets still in the fridge, so fish again tonight! At least hubby will do the cooking, I always get told I overcook fish ( I like mine well cooked, lol).
Back to craft chat, lol. Make sure you check out all the fabulous DT cards and we would love to see you join in the linky party this week. Christmas is getting so close now and I'm sure there are still people out there creating Christmas cards still (me included!!!) so there is sure to be lots of Christmas inspiration in the coming weeks linky parties.

Everything That You Ever Wanted to Know About Bugaboo Stamps: A Short Essay
As if raising five children in the frozen land of the North was not enough of a challenge, Jodie Mackrell decided to dip her cold little Canadian toes into the world of papercrafting by opening an online store full of her illustrations. That was two years ago. Today Bugaboo Stamps is one of the leading companies in digital images, and we're still growing! From seriously snarky to sugary sweet to sublimely soulful all the way over to the other side of the super sexy spectrum, you're bound to find all that you need and more to create your paper projects. Jodie works very hard to provide New Releases and Freebies every week!
If your taste runs to rubber (and you know who you are), you can find Bugaboo Stamps atTotally Stampalicious. And finally, join the Bugaboo Stamps DT for weekly challenges at Catch the Bug.
Bugaboo Stamps are offering a very generous prize of winner's choice of 7 single digis!
POTW Time once more and I have a couple of beauties for you. This first one is just gorgeous with it's sweet bird image and lovely colour scheme. Love the music and the flower. It's by Joan at Late Night Stamping and you can find it here
The second one is by Meg from Bits and Pieces and you can find it here. A delightful CAS card, love the beautifully coloured image.
Time to go, Isaac is here today and so far he has been playing in the back room and watching a bit of kiddy tv programmes and also running up and down the hallway with his toy lawnmower while I type. He's a good little boy (most of the time, lol)
The DT and I are really looking forward to seeing your fantastic creations this week. Don't forget to be in the running for the prize you need to do a bit of hopping and leave a comment saying you saw their creations on the Make It Monday linky blog. We would love to see you popping in to our blogs as well to leave a comment. Keep those cards and papercraft projects coming. If you are a newbie to the linky party you will be amazed at all the talent out there in blogland!!!
