Sweet Talk - Penny Black And More


I can't believe we are up to the first Sunday in April, and therefore it's time for Penny Black And More and the Challenge this month is 'Blossoms And Blooms' and as usual we have some fabby sponsors too :

Buttons For Brains

And one lucky person using a Penny Black image will be picked to be Guest Designer for next month, so pop over to Penny Black And More  and check out the other amazing inspiration the very talented team have come up with and in the fun - but please do remember you can use any image you like, except Digi's.

And A View From The Side :

Today's stamp is one i've had for a while and never got round to using, Penny Black - 'Sweet Talk - 1442J' and i decided she would look good on a centre step card, and i've used : Marianne D - 'Rose Anja Border - LR0212' at the bottom, the papers are : Papermania - 'Rose Garden', the die used on the side bit is : Memory Box - 'Hollyhock Stem', decorated with roses from : Wild Orchid Crafts, the corner die is: Memory Box - 'Macarena Corner', the gems are from : Papermania

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

Cutie Pies - where Challenge No: 66 is 'Dies And Punches'

Totally Papercrafts  - where Challenge No: 213 is 'Pastel Colours'

Simply Create Too - where Challenge No: 58 is 'Easter or Bunnies' - i've gone for the bunny

Papertake Weekly - where the Challenge is 'Anything Goes'

Stampin' For The Weekend - where the Challenge is 'Spring Colours'

Thanks for looking and for any comments you would like to leave, would be most appreciated, Luv Sam x
