Hoppy Day


It's so cold here, is it just generally very cold throughout the country ??

I was thinking of using this stamp for the Penny Black Saturdays Friend - Men's Cards Challenge last week, but in the end decided on 'Scooter Dog', but after seeing a couple of challenges this week for 'Paper Piecing' i'm glad i hadn't, as this image blends very well to it - i have Paper Pieced' the waistcoat, the scarf round his neck and his trousers. The papers i have used i bought at a show last year and have been itching to use them, i originally bought them as one of them has a row of frogs on it, but it proved to big for the centre strip of the card :-( !!

Right onto Todays Card and Challenges :

Penny Black Blog  - where this week's Challenge is 'Paper Piecing'

Totally Papercrafts - where Challenge No: 55 is 'Paper Piecing'

Papertake Weekly - where the Challenge is 'Anything Goes' with the option of something old - the sentiment Clare Curd Signature Range

Scrap Creations - where GGSC53 is 'Kids'

Friday Sketchers - where they are up to Sketch No: 143

Fussy and Fancy -where this weeks Challenge is 'Embossing and / or Paper Piecing' - i chose 'Paper Piecing'

Image - Penny Black - 'Hoppy Day'
Sentiment - Clare Curd Signature Range
Papers - Three Bugs In A Rug - 'Snips & Snails'
Punched Edge - MS - 'Modern Garland'

Thanks for looking, Luv Sam x
