Penguin Pals


Well as it warms up to be the hottest week so far, i'm uploading this while it's still coolish !! and before i over heat. We find out today who H's new teacher is and who is going to be in his class, i so hope it's with at least one of his friends ( with H's school they have 3 classes for years 1 & 2, etc, so they get mixed up every year).

When i saw today's image, i just simply fell in love with it : Penny Black - 'Penguin Pals / 1535H / 1999' and i've embossed round the image with : Penny Black - 'Christmas Treasures / 30-019' in crystal embossing powder, the papers are : Echo Park - 'Tis The Season' and for the 2 strips i've cut them, with my very useful: Die-Namics - 'Fishtail Flags Stax, the buttons and twine are from my stash.

Not sure if first photo shows off embossing :

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

Penny Black Saturday  - where the Challenge for July is 'Buttons And Bows'

Winter Wonderland  - where the Challenge is 'Three Of Three' - i've gone for 3 Characters, 3 Different Papers, 3 Buttons and 3 Different Coloured Pieces of Twine

Sparkles Monthly Challenge - where Challenge No: 58  is 'Christmas In July

Sweet Stampin' -where the Challenge is 'Christmas In July'

ABC Christmas - where they are up to 'N is for Numbers'

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

How gorgeous! This image is adorable and coloured beautifully. I love the papers too.
It's already quite hot here but a nice breeze so not too bad being outside in it.

What a happy Santa Sam, great card.

Hectic time at school these last few weeks, we break up Friday although Azaria finished a few weeks ago after her A levels. Our eldest daughter who is a history teacher has been almost counting the hours until Friday.
