Join - In ?


This weekend is H's school summer fete - it's a weird one as we open 11-4, then again 6-10, we went to the evening do last year - but call me a prude / old fashioned seeing parents with children drunk, is not my idea of a fun evening, don't get me wrong i like a drink - but one of us always stays sober, as we are usually driving.

Today is the mid month point for Penny Black And More where the Challenge is 'Wings - Real or Fantasy' and as usual we have some fabby prizes too :

Penny Black

All Occasion Dies



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, 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.

This cutie image, is such a great fun summer image : Penny Black - 'Join - In ? / 2880K / 2004', i'm enjoying creating a scene at the moment for my stamps, using my cloud die and distressed ink - 'Tumbled Glass', the papers are a really old Stampin Up collection, but i'm sorry i don't know the name of it (the orange paper in the centre of the flowers is a different collection), the circles are cut with my : Tonic Scallops, the flowers are : EK Sucess, the bee and ladybird is : Cheery Lynn Designs - 'Tiny Things With Wings', the buttons, pearls and ribbon are from my stash.

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are : 

Simon Say's Stamp - where the Challenge is 'Your Favourite Product / Or Technique' - my favourite product is Penny Black and technique, i'm loving at the moment is making scenes / clouds

Papertake Weekly  - where the Challenge is : 'Ooh So Pretty'

Live And Love Crafts  - where Challenge No: 36 is 'In The Garden'

Ooh La La Creations  - where Challenge No: 182 is 'Here Comes Summer'

What a lovely summery card Sam a great stamp and I love those pretty papers. I'm with you on the drunk parents, doesn't seem quite appropriate somehow, but nevertheless I do hope it goes well and lots of fun enjoyed xx

An adorable card Sam, such a cute image and lovely summery papers.
I don't think you are a prude/old fashioned - having a drink and enjoying yourself is fine, being drunk around children is completely out of order!

Not the best idea to attend a school function drunk, especially in front of children..I don't think you are a prude or old fashioned at all..and I just love your cute Hedgies the wee guy looking up at the cute.

I agree with you regarding the drinking.

Gorgeous card Sam, love the stamp it is such fun and love the added bee. This year there seems to be lots of bumble bees - more than usual, even the scout hut has them nesting in the roof.
I have never heard of a school fete having an 'evening do' - drinks not a good idea at a school fete. Hope you are all ok, no baby news here yet :( x Susan x
