For this weeks Penny Black Challenge No 103, the theme was "In The Garden". I so love this froggy stamp, "Captivated", so have used it to make my card this week. The paper is from the Papermania Colossal collection - another of my current favourites, & finally I used my lovely, new Martha Stewart punch to make the leaves for the corners.

I'm also entering this card in the Papertake Weekly Challenge as it's theme is "Fun Fun Fun" including all Summer activities & if the weather improves, the garden is where I'll be heading hopefully to have fun in the sun! Jx

A Very Cute Bear.

For this weeks Papertake Weekly Challenge, Sketch 41 I choose to do this little card. I think the image is a Penny Black, & it's coloured by promarkers. The paper choice I couldn't tell you as the cover has long since disappeared!

Pollycraft Challenge

This is my second attempt at this challenge. The first post didn't have the stripes in the background - cause I printed the recipe on a black & white printer, & it never showed!

Anyway, take 2 - I think has all the elements. Again it's a Penny Black stamp, but this time the papers are Papermania, Colossal Flowery Pack & not sure who the pink hearts are by!

Thanks for looking & any comments left.

Penny Black Challenge - Punches

Made for the challenge 1st May.

Did ticket punched corners, nestie ovals & punched hearts.


Just realised, I've linked the challenge to my docraft page, not my blog! Sorry, I'd change it if I knew how! Would get Colin to help, but he's at the top of Ben Nevis just now so can't! (He's away at Scout camp in the Highlands.)
