Blooming Wheelbarrow

Hi,

Today is the 18th and therefore it means we are up to mid month for Penny Black & More and the Challenge is 'Blossoms And Bows' and as usual we have some fabby sponsors too :

Penny Black

All Occasion Dies

Crafty Ribbons

Sizzix

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 was originally going to send this card to Alan's Mum for 'Mother's Day' - but i didn't get my butt into gear and finish it in time !! The image is another oldie : Penny Black - 'Blooming Wheelbarrow / 270H / 1997' and it took me ages to colour in, as i had to google Pansies, as i wanted to get the shading right, the papers are : LOTV - 'Country Meadow', the pearls are : Hobby House and the ribbon is from stash.

The Challenges I Would I Like To Enter Are :

Penny Black Friends - where the Challenge for March is 'Spring Blooms'

Allsorts - where Challenge No: 302 is 'Flowers And Pearls'

Crafting Musketeers - where Challenge No: 23 is 'Ribbon And Pearls'

Top Tip Tuesday - where the Challenge is 'Buttons Or Bows' - i've used a Double Bow

Fab N' Funky - where Challenge No: 251 is 'Spring Colours'

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