Ah inchies! Seems we have all got a bit addicted to these little lovelies. One of the girls on the swap group I belong to has come up with Cicrclies...1" circles but I haven't tried them yet. Don't suppose it will be long as I'm sure there will be a swap soon.Anyway these have been made for a swap, 36 of them, 6 of each design. Well some of them aren't the same, but the general theme is followed for each group of 6. The overall theme is earth tones-ochres siennas browns burnt orange and brick, to include stamping , a background ,a word ,a paper layer or an embellishement. Not necessarily all of them but stamping is a must.

I belong to a photography group, which meets about once a month. None of us are experts, but we set subjects and show and discuss the photographs taken, it's good fun. Here are a couple of pictures that I took at Slimbridge Wetlands and Wildfowl Trust, a great day out and brilliant for photographers.
This one was was taken in the Tropical House, I wasn't quick enough to get photographs of the birds, so took this instead.
I love water reflections and took a lot of photographs of the flamingoes.
This one was taken at Sissinghurst Castle, which has a beautiful garden created by Vita Sackville-West and her husband Sir Harold Nicolson. It is the roof of the visitors centre. I took this in black and white mode and cropped it in Adobe.
