Chalkboard Grateful - Penny Black And More


I'm glad to report that a night with Brendan Cole (Strictly Dancing fame) was definitely 'A Night To Remember' (and that was the name of his show), we were 3 rows from the front, right in the middle and at one point he came on in a very tight pair of trousers - that left nothing to the imagination and my 2 friends eyes were almost out of their sockets on springs ;-) !!!

Oooo as today is the 1st February and the 1st Sunday, then it's the start of Penny Black And More and this month it's : Anything Goes Except A Digi and as usual we have some fabby sponsors :

Penny Black 

Crafts U Love

All Occasion Dies 


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 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 have actually posted these cards, as i had to make 4 (2 of each design) for Harrison (my 8 year old) to send to relatives for his Christmas / Birthday presents / money the stamp was bought in a sale in the summer and have not used yet !! : Penny Black - 'Chalkboard Grateful / 40-315/ 2014', i stamped it with Versamark and then : Stampendous - 'White Embossing Powder', the papers are : Pink - Dovecraft - 'Back To Basics' and the Brown - Dovecraft - 'Masculine', the twine and buttons are from my stash.

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :
Penny Black Friends - where the Challenge is 'New' - I've used my new stamp.
Crafty Creations  - where Challenge No: 281 i's 'Something Old And Something New' - the something old is the papers and the new is the stamp
Simon Say's Stamp - where the Challenge is 'Anything Goes'
Top Tip Tuesday - where the Challenge is 'Something New' - I've used my new stamp

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

Oh my Sam, I have just had a little visit to that seat with you and your friends. Reminds me of some years ago when we saw Ian perform on one of our cruises, his trousers were see very memorable !!

Love the crisp elegance of your Thank You cards, don't think I've seen this stamp before.

Hope you have a good Sunday and if it's as cold there as here, keep warm.

Sounds like you had a wonderful night with your friends! I love sitting up front at events like that. We had 4th row seats last year at the Bryan Adams concert. Still can't believe I saw him that close up and can't believe I didn't actually collapse :-)
Beautiful cards!!
