 The special stamp set we have for you this month is: "Holiday Tag"
The mini stamp set we have for you this month is:
"Nature's Brushstrokes"

Today's set is called Tailgate Party.  We don't have enough land near sporting events to tailgate so I don't know of anywhere in the UK that it happens.  We did have a tailgate BBQ though once with our friends when they lived near San Francisco when we went to watch Stanford Football.

My cards today are for men in the family whose Birthdays are soon.  Football in the UK is soccer so I added the extra ball to my second card!

I also have one further card made with the Nature's Brushstrokes set which I love with a sentiment from Birthday Mini

Thanks for visiting this week - I hope you have enjoyed the hop.  See you again soon and don't forget to check out my other team member's work.
Here's the Design Team:

  4. Terrific work showing the versatility of all of these sets.

  5. Very cute cards. The first card shows a perfect day of grilling with blue skies. I like how the second one shows all of the balls. On the last one, I love, love, love how you stamped the image multiple times with the different shades.

  6. The cards are a goal/homerun/touchdown!! My daughter played soccer both indoor & outdoor when she was younger. She was a goalie. I use to be a football fan but nowadays the players are only in it for the money. Not a Dallas Cowboy fan. I do watch an occasional game. Especially like the Super Bowl. I do like the Texas Rangers baseball team.

  8. Thanks for sharing your great cards!
