Hello all - my name is Gill aka 'Gibby Frogett'  from gibberishjottings and gibbyfrogettcraftations.

I was so surprised and excited to be asked by Valerie and Susi to host the August challenge - thank you both so much.

The theme I have chosen is 'Nature's Wonders'  as  I am constantly amazed by the things I encounter in my small garden. The antics of birds,  watching the hedgehogs that visit, plants changing season by season, weather, the night sky - 'Nature's Wonders' begin in my garden. I have been creative in various ways for as long as I can remember. I love all sorts of arts, crafts, digital artwork/scrapping, family history, music and garden wildlife. I've been stamping since about 1994 and have the usual sort of craft room filled to the brim with rubber stamps, inks, paint, paper etc.

I hope you enjoy this challenge and I look forward to seeing your take on this theme.

Ich war überrascht und begeistert, dass Valerie und Susi mich eingeladen haben,
 die August Herausforderung auszurichten. Lieben Dank an Euch beide.
Ich habe das Thema "WUNDER DER NATUR" gewählt, da ich immer begeistert bin von all den Dingen, denen ich in meinem kleinen Garten begegne. Possen der Vögel,  Igel, die ihren Besuch abstatten, oder wie sich die Pflanzen im Laufe des Jahres verändern, das Wetter, der Nachthimmel. Das "Wunder der Natur " fängt für mich in meinem Garten an. Ich war irgendwie immer kreativ auf verschiedene Arten, soweit ich  zurückdenken kann.
Ich liebe alle Arten von Kunst, Basteln, Digitalkunst/-Scrappen, Familiengeschichte, Musik und die Gartenwildnis. Ich stemple ungefähr seit 1994 und besitze den üblichen bis zum Rand mit Stempeln, Tinten, Farben und Papier gefüllten Bastelraum.
Ich hoffe Du magst dieses Thema und ich freu mich schon richtig darauf , was Dir dazu einfallen wird.
