Gardener - Penny Black And More


Well as it's the first Sunday in May (and a bank holiday weekend too), it must be a new Challenge over at Penny Black And More and this month it's : 'Anything Goes', and as usual we have some fabby sponsors and they are :

Crafts U Love - which is where i bought this fabby stamp from

Jo at Let's Create - is offering a goody bag

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 join in the fun - but please do remember you can use any image you like, except Digi's.

I so love the Mo Manning images, but for some reason my Twinkling H20's do not like digis, so i'm over the moon when she decided that Penny Black could have some as stamps and this is one of them : 'Gardener - 40-296' and for a change i have gone for a more CAS design and the paper is : Forever Friends - 'Just For Him', the sentiment is : Inkadinkadoo - 'Happy Everything' the trowels are stickers from 'The Works', the charm and netting is from stash.

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are : 

Simon Say's Stamp - where the Challenge is 'Anything Goes'

One Crazy Stamper - where the Challenge is 'Anything Goes And An Embellishment'

Dream Valley - where Challenge No: 81 is 'Anything Goes'

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

Ah, this is a really delightful Dad's Day card, Sam! What perfect paper and well done on the twinkling!! Hugs, Darnell

linda said...

hi sam, the papers are so perfect for this great image! do your twinks not like digis because you use an inkjet printer?

Jules said...

Hi Sam

I agree, I think Mo has a style all of her own and it is lovely that some are now in stamp form.

The one you have used here makes for a brilliant male card for all those busy gardeners!!!

Yep, best pull my finger out and get cracking with Father's Day cards!!! Thanks for the nudge!!!

Hope all is good with you.

Love Jules xx
