From The Heart


I'm scheduling this (so i hope Mr Blogger doesn't play up), as our flight from San Francisco doesn't land until 1.15pm and by the time we get home from Heathrow, all i'll be fit for, is bed !!

Today is the first Sunday in September, so that means a new challenge over at Penny Black And More and this month it's an easy one 'Anything Goes' and as usual we have some fabby sponsors :

Penny Black

Stix 2 


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.

I've made today's card for Alan's Dad, as he used to play a guitar in a band and the sentiment will appeal to his Yorkshire sense of humour !! The image is : Penny Black - 'From The Heart / 2874F / 2004', the sentiment is : Penny Black - 'Croaking ..... / 2472E / 2002', the papers are : Three Bugs In A Rug - 'Snips And Snails', the twine, charm and buttons are from my stash.

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

Penny Black Saturday  - where September's Challenge is '3 Or More Patterned Papers'

Stampin' Royalty - where Challenge SR#293 is 'Circles'

Allsorts - where Challenge No: 327 is 'Lots Of Layers'

Sweet Stampin' - where the Challenge is 'Let's Get Musical'

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