We had Bear to stay as well so you can imagine it was busy! My daughter and SIL went to see a show in London and Daisy and Bear stayed with us.
Just look at the difference in their sizes!
As you can see Daisy adores drawing, she also love to be read to and I was delighted that she remembered her recent trip and asked to go down to my studio. One of her favoruite stories at the moment is Stick Man by Julia Donaldson. I decided we could make a stick man of her own.
I had a quick think and grabbed a trusty kitchen roll tube (luckily I am saving these to make my Christmas crackers so I had some in the cupboard). I remembered I had some "eyes" in my cupboard so I dug them out. Daisy love felt pens and so that tin came out too.
Daisy would like to enter her Stick Man into
Pixie's snippet's playground #200
She used lots of snippets from her Nanna's Studio ;0)
I am thrilled that Daisy seems to be joining her Nanna in a love of crafting and she's not even 2 until 11th November. My daughter said that she had not seen her sit with so much concentration for a long period of time.
My card challenge entry is a Halloween tag. I used some autumnal/ Halloween coloured distress ink and made an inky background.
Here is it under construction
I used one of my Nicecrane Holloween image. These are such fun images and are available here
I added some die cut pumpkins one of which I crackled .I stamped a big spider and sentiments from my Tim Halloween set of stamps. I also added some Remnant rubs and a fun skeleton charm and a saw brad which I have had in my stash for ages and never found a use for!

Thanks for visiting me today. We enjoyed a visit down to see my DD, SIL and Daisy yesterday and had such a lovely time. We went for a walk in the New Forest and you will never guess what we saw.......that I will save for another blog post ;0)
It was a bonus to have the extra hour in bed this morning but boy will we notice the darkness this evening...winter really is looming now and it is just 2 months today until we will be eating Christmas dinner and opening our Christmas pressies!
Bye for now,
