Nature's Friends


Alan and I had an absolutely fabby time at 'Phoenix Nights' starring Peter Kay and rest of the team, we are now back at home and H is at holiday club today, tomorrow we are going to a Nature Reserve to do den building and fun outdoor things, then Friday is 'Shaun The Sheep'.

We are up to our mid month post over at Penny Black And More this month it's 'Anything Goes, Except A Digi' and as usual we have some fabby sponsors too :

Penny Black

All Occasion Dies

Crafts U Love


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, we do accept Digi's.


I recently did a class at The Glitter Pot and whilst there we made 2 cards and as there was some time at the end, we were allowed to play and i made this : I firstly Distressed the card using : Tim Holtz - 'Mustard Seed, Ripe Persimmon and Festive Berries', i then masked half of : Penny Black - 'Woodland Wonder / 40-356', and stamped it, then masked off of the half and stamped again, then masked off both sides and stamped a bit more across the bottom, the deer and birds are from : Penny Black - 'Nature's Friends / 30-261', the sentiment is : Woodware - 'Tiny Phrases'. I'm so glad i did the class as i so admire our lovely DT coordinator Brenda, but i was just a little apprehensive about making scenes.

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

Stamping Sensations - where February's Challenge is 'Anything Goes'

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