Confession time, i didn't make the McMillian coffee morning last Friday, as my lovely friend Liz's, young son Luke had 12 seizures Thursday night (he is a very sick little boy, that visits the local children's hospice) fortunately he is a lot better now and apparently £505.17 was made at the coffee morning.
Today is the first Sunday in October and that means a new Challenge over at Penny Black And More and this month we would like to see 'Warm Autumn Colours' and as usual, we have some fabby sponsors too :
Yours Or Mine Papercraft
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 up with and join in the fun - but please do remember you can use any image you like, except Digi's.
I decided i would use an image that is great for lots of different things, including men's cards - Penny Black - 'Fantasy / 3880K / 2008', i started by cutting 2 pieces of card the same size, then cutting a circle in the centre of one of them and then sticking together, i stamped the image with : Versafine / brown and covered it in : WOW - 'Clear Embossing Powder' (i also embossed the sentiment too)and then distressed it with : Tim Holtz - 'Barn Door / Spiced Marmalade / Scattered Straw' and at the end added some tiny brown beads, the sentiment is : Penny Black - 'Thanks, Thanks / 2915F / 2004'.
The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :
Penny Black Saturday - where October's Challenge is 'Embossing'
Alphabet - where they are up to 'Q Is For Quick And Simple'
Cute Card Thursday - where Challenge No: 393 is 'Masculine'
Papertake Weekly - where the Challenge is 'Take Your Pick - i've picked : Colour Theme, Technique Theme and Product Theme'
Thanks for looking and for any comments you would like to leave, would be most appreciated, Luv Sam x
