FOSTV101 - Anything but a Card

Hello - Happy Advent to you and welcome to my blog post for FOSTV101.  I hope this busy time of year doesn't leave you feeling stressed and you are able to look forward to Christmas like the young ones do.

The challenge this time around is anything but a card.  When the calendar stamp set was launched I promised I would make a calendar with it and today this is what I am sharing.  I have shared January on the FOSTV page so I am showing the remaining months here.  I have used a variety of images and made the pictures appropriate to the UK so I have added captions in case the picture does not make sense to you.


St Patrick



Wimbledon Tennis - Strawberries

Summer BBQs

Seaside Trips

Leaves and Acorns

Guy Fawkes - Fireworks
Advent & Christmas
Thank you for looking.  Hope the week and any card writing / present buying / Christmas cooking go well for you.  

The lorry came on Thursday to collect the Operation Christmas Child shoe boxes for Azerbaijan and I think we will be finishing off the remaining shoe box checking this week.
