Team Effort


Our weekend away, was really good - we cycled on Friday at Bedgebury Pinetum, on Saturday as the temperature was 28C we decided to go to Ashford Outlet Mall and on Sunday we cycled along the canal in Hythe - we would have gone further but the rain came down really heavy !!, i have had new patio doors put into the conservatory, as the old ones had let water in !!, this weekend Alan will be painting, in readiness for the carpet to be fitted next week.

There is a story behind this stamp - i recently purchased 2 PB stamps from Ebay and when the parcel arrived it contained 4 stamps, which confused me a little, till i read the note and it said that because i was a good buyer and that i had used the lady before, she had included 2 more stamps for me, unfortunately they were 2 i already had (and this is one of them). so instead i have offered them to Brenda as a prize on Penny Black And More, as they are brand new. The stamp is : Penny Black - 'Team Effort /3980K/2009', the sentiment is : Hero Arts - 'Small Greetings', even the circle it sits on is from the paper pack,  the papers are old and were free from a magazine ; My Mind's Eye - 'Pretty Please Spring Papers', the flower is : Tim Holtz - 'Tattered Floral Garland' and the sparkly brad is from my stash.

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

Sweet Stampin' - where the Challenge is 'Bear With Me - meaning use a Bear image'

Simon Say's Stamp - where the Challenge is 'Furry Friends'

Sweet Sketch 2 - where they are up to Sketch No: 60

Penny Black Saturday  - where the Challenge for July is 'Friendships'

Creative Inspirations - where Challenge No: 321 is 'Girlie'

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

Great card Sam and such a sweet image. Glad you had a good weekend, spoiled only by rain on the Sunday. Our weather is the opposite, rainy days broken infrequently by occasional sun... Needless to say the heating is on! Jx
