Daffodil Bear


I fell up the stairs yesterday morning (yes i know i'm a Muppet), i'm ok, but i wasn't up to driving and walking round RHS Wisley, so instead we went to Zizzi's for lunch and then to the cinema to see 'Shaun The Sheep Movie' and it was so much fun.

Today is the first Sunday of the month and that means a new Challenge at Penny Black And More and this month it's Blossoms And Bows and as usual we have some fabby sponsors :

Penny Black

All Occasion Dies

Crafty Ribbons


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.

Today is St David's Day in the UK and he is patron saint of Wales (not that i am Welsh), but there flower is the Daffodil, so i thought it would be appropriate to use this adorable old image : Penny Black - 'Daffodil Bear / 472D/ 1996', mounted on : Marianne Designs - 'Circle & Flower / CR1248', surrounded by : Hobby House Pearls - 'Green To Go', the papers are very old : K & Co, the sentiment is : Penny Black Creative Dies - Celebrations / 51-028' (that i managed to get at Xmas from Oyster Stamps, when they had 20% off, the flowers are from : Mulberry Crafts - whose P+P is so reasonable and i would not hesitate to use them again, the leaves are : Cheery Lynn Designs - 'Fanciful Flourish', the ribbon is from stash.

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are : 

Winter Wonderland - where the Challenge is 'Tie A Bow'

Crafty Catz - where Challenge No: 268 is 'Use Your Dies And / Or Punches'

Simon Says Stamp - where the Challenge is 'Anything Goes'

Wonderful Spring card!

Your little up the stairs must have shook you up...I have done that too and it is disconcerting, I know. Sounds like you made the best of your day though!
