...... Your Birthday


I've been struggling recently with lots of migraines and a severe rash on my neck (some of you may have seen it on facebook) - well i'm glad to report, that i'm feeling a lot better and my kinesiologist has put me on some different food enzymes.

Today is mid month at Penny Black & More and this month's Challenge is 'Birthdays' and as usual we have some fabby sponsors too :

Penny Black

All Occasion Dies

Yours Or Mine Papercraft

Marianne Designs

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's image is : Penny Black - '..... Your Birthday / 3974K / 2009', the papers are very old : Making Memories - 'Cosmopolitan', the punched edge is : Martha Stewart - 'Embossed Zigzag', the twine is : Dovecraft - 'Curiosity Corner', the sentiment is : Papermania - 'Clare Curd's Signature Range' and the buttons are from my stash.

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

Penny Black Saturday - where the Challenge for April is 'Easter And / Or Chocolate Brown'

Cutie Pies - where Challenge No: 86 is 'All About The Boys'

Dream Valley  - where Challenge No: 104 is 'Get Kraft/ Use Kraft Card'

Fab N' Funky - where Challenge No: 255 is 'Masculine'

ABC  - where they are up to 'H for Happy Birthday'

Top Tip Tuesday - where the Challenge is '3 Of Something' - I've gone for 3 Buttons and 3 Different DP's 

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