Thanks for all your lovely comments about my holiday snaps, i'm glad you loved them, as much as we enjoyed Vancouver, Alaska and San Francisco - we found that Alaska got under our skin, so don't be surprised if you hear that we have gone back in the next couple of years !!
I can't believe, we are up to mid month at Penny Black And More, this months Challenge is 'Anything Goes' and as usual we have some fabby sponsors too :
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 have no 'Thank You' cards left, after our holiday/ cruise, as i took 5 with me, to give to our waiters, the girls in Fun Factory (kids club), the guys that cleaned our room, so i thought i would start on the cards for our next cruise (that we booked, whilst on the ship this time !!), the stamp is : Penny Black - 'Things To Do ! / 1683K / 2000' (that i haven't used, for 4 years), i've stamped the sentiment : Penny Black - 'Salutations / 30-014/ transparent set' in black versafine, then embossed it using : WOW - 'Clear Embossing Powder' and then distressed it and the embossing section (Cuttlebug - 'Bubbles') with : Tim Holtz - 'Old Paper', the papers are : LOTV - 'Country Gent', the strips are cut using : Die-namics - 'Fishtail Flags' and the tops are : Whiff Of Joy - 'Notebook Border'
The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :
Sketch Saturday - where they are up to Sketch No: 378
Cardz 4 Guyz - where Challenge No: 88 is 'Embossing Heat or Dry' - i've done both - sentiment heat embossed and strip dry embossed
As You Like It - where the Challenge is 'Your Favourite Die and Why' - mine is Fishtail Flags, as they are so perfect for men's cards and give a different shape to a layout
Papertake Weekly - where the Challenge is 'Animal Magic'
Thanks for looking and for any comments you would like to leave, would be most appreciated, Luv Sam x
