Fairytale Fungi

Afternoon everyone from a lovely cool London and the odd heavy shower, which means I don't have to water the garden!
We had a lovely weekend in Portsmouth to Charlie sit all day Saturday as Keir and Lara were at a wedding. He was as good as gold and took us out for lunch at Port Solent where the waitresses fell in love with him. We went to Birdworld on Friday and Charlie was fascinated by the birds, he loves the sounds and there were some beautiful birds to see. I have some photos to share with you at the end.
Anyway back to the reason for my post, it's another letter for the Alpha challenge over at the Craft Barn. This time the letter is T and toadstools was my first thought, come and see what I did:



I used a Polkadoodle stamp and created a template to allow me to have some plain toadstools and then used the image at the front. I also used a CI stamp and Chapel Road stamp to create the foliage.
I missed the last challenge which was the letter Y because I busied myself with creating a page for the word I had chosen and just as I was about to post it I saw that we had to use yellow! That'll teach me to read the criteria properly.
Here are a few photos from Birdworld:









Thanks for visiting

Polkadoodle is the place to look for fun fungi - love how you've used the stamp and included plain ones too. Had to smile at your story about the 'Y' contribution - happens to me all the time!!
