Sunday, 5 April 2015



Firstly i would just like to wish all of a very Happy Easter and as you know i'm in Yorkshire, so hopefully Mr Blogger won't play up, as i've had to schedule this as Alan's mum has had Harrison(for the first time in 4 years !!) for 2 nights, so we (including Whisper) have been staying in a B+B, as Friday was Alan's Birthday and mine is tomorrow.

Therefore as today is the first Sunday that means a new challenge over at Penny Black And More and this month it's 'Birthday's' and as usual this month we have some fabby sponsors :

Penny Black

All Occasion Dies

PPR Papercrafts

Marianne Designs

And one lucky person using a Penny Black image will be picked to be our Guest Designer for next month, so pop over to Penny Black And 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 think it was a brilliant idea when the lovely Mo Manning allowed Penny Black to add them to rubber stamps, today's image is : Penny Black - 'Sunshine (slapstick)/ 40-303 / 2014' and i have paper pieced her - the pink paper, is a very old - Docrafts one and the other papers are : Penny Black - 'Painted Blooms', the sentiment is : LOTV - 'Tags', the ribbon is : The Ribbon Girls and the charm is from my stash.

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are : 

Sweet Stampin' - where the Challenge is 'Paper Piecing' 

Papertake Weekly - where the Challenge is 'Take Your Pick' - i went for the Product Theme - Oval / Spellbinders Floral Oval Die

7 Kids College Fund - where Challenge No: 122 is 'Anything Goes - with the option of using green'

Simon Say's Stamp - where the Challenge is 'Happy Birthday'

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