Tender Showers


Today i'm grabbing 5 mins to myself before i have to take son to soft play for an hour, then Little Rugby Academy, then on to Vodafone to cancel my contract.

Todays card started out with me agreeing to do a Penny Black Challenge over on Docrafts - my lovely friend Janice came up with the title of 'Nursery Rhymmes or Childrens Songs' - well after much discussing with son, as to what he wanted Mummy to do, we came up with -
'Mary Mary quite contrary how does your garden grow', as i have had found in my collection a stamp that i like a lot, but not used very much - fortunately i was able to find some blog challenges to link it too.

Right on to the Card and Challenges

Truly Scrumptious - where Challenge No: 49 is 'Brown, Pink & Green'

Papersundaes - where Challenge No:52 is 'A Birthday Celebration Hop' - where you can pick any challenge from the last year - I went for Challenge No: 44 'Pick Your Sundae Topping' - where you had to pick 2 toppings,  I chose Ribbon and Embossing

Simon Say's Stamp - where the Challenge is 'Bingo', where you have to pick a line - I chose Die Cutting, Dry Embossing, Ribbon

Sweet Sketch Wednesday - where Sketch No: 85 is another beauty

Crafty Catz - where Challenge No: 66 is 'A Forgotten Stamp' - thanks to Aunty Sue for letting me know
