The Engineer


Well we had a fabby time in the Isle Of Wight - it rained all day on Tuesday, and a bit a couple of other days, but didn't stop us doing anything - in fact the day it rained we went to Ryde and Alan found the Chocolate shop, so he was in heaven !!, we had forgotten how fabby the IOW is and we would all love to go back - Whisper (who is 14 years old) even had a holiday romance with a 3 year old collie called Socks !!

As there quite a few Father's Day challenges around, so i thought i would take advantage and use my new PB slapstick stamp (it's a Mo Manning design, and she has allowed PB to use them as a stamp), i've combined it with Basic Grey papers - 'Oliver', a punch that i bought and have never used !! MS - 'Picket Fence', Buttons, Twine and Brads were all from my stash.

Today's Card And Challenges :

Sweet Stampin' - where the Challenge is 'All About Fathers'

Penny Black Saturday Friends - where June's Challenge is 'Masculine'

C.R.A.F.T - where Challenge No: 209 is 'Father's Day / Male'

Sketch And Stash - where they are up to Sketch No: 115 - my new stash is : the stamp and punch, the old stash is : buttons, sentiment, twine, brads, paper.

Cutie Pie - where Challenge No: 45 is '3-2-1' - i went for 3 brads, bits of twine / 2 buttons, papers/ 1 image, punched edge

Bearly Mine - where Challenge No: 89 is 'Dies And / Or Punches'

Image - Penny Black Slapstick - 'Engineer'
Papers - Basic Grey - 'Oliver'
Sentiment - Paula Pascal - 'All Year Round'
Punched Edge - MS - 'Picket Fence'
Brads, Buttons, Twine all from my stash

Glad you had a good time, haven't been there for years, must go back. It was so cold the beginning of last week for our hol and some heavy rain too. The last three days were gorgeous though. Didn't realise this was a stamp, not just a digi. It is such a great image and your paper is perfect with it. Fab card
