Birthday Dog


Oooo this is my first post after our half term break to 'Dubrovnik', which was brilliant and i will add some photos in my next post. Today is the first Sunday of the month, so that means a new Challenge at Penny Black & More  and this month it's 'Anything Goes' and as usual we have some amazing sponsors :

Penny Black

Crafts U Love

Classy Crafts

Flonz Crafts

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 & More, 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 had to make a birthday card for one of H's school friends and as he has 2 dogs, i picked this cutie, that i haven't used for a while : Penny Black - 'Birthday Dog - 2078H', i've put : 'Aleen's True Snow' on the cake, so it looks like frosting !, the papers are : My Mind's Eye - 'True Blue', the sentiment is : Woodware - 'Circular Greetings' with an 8 cut in the middle: Sizzix - 'Fruit Smoothies', the charm and twine is from stash.

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

As You Like It - where the Challenge is 'Cute Or Elegant And Why' - I go for cute every time, as to me this is what the old PB's are all about and their my favourites, and this one also makes me giggle too.

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

Cardz 4 Guyz - where Challenge No: 42 is 'Use Some Metal'

Allsorts - where Challenge No: 283 is 'Masculine'

My Time To Craft - where Challenge No: 265 is 'Charmed I'm Sure'

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