Tweet Talk


Today is son and heir's Birthday - Harrison is 9 years old and has gone off to Rugby training with Alan and wants Pizza for dinner, yesterday we went for a Thai lunch with friends.

Gee i can't believe this is the first Sunday in January 2016, it's the start of a new Challenge over at Penny Black And More and the theme is 'All About The Girls' and as usual we have some great prizes too :

Penny Black

Be Creative

Crafty Ribbons

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.

The stamp i've used today is the orginal wooden version - Penny Black - 'Tweet Talk / 1373K / 1999', the papers are new : LOTV - 'One Birdie Lane', the edging round the image is : Whimsy Stamps - 'Lace Doily Corner 1', the ribbon is : The Ribbon Girls, the cage and bird is : Tim Holtz, kindly sent to me, as part of a blog candy 2 years ago by the very lovely and talented Brenda, the sentiment is : LOTV and the pearls are from my stash.

My new toy - that i bought in the Black Friday sales

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

Allsorts - where Challenge No: 344 is 'What's New ?' - mine is the papers and new toy - both bought in the Black Friday Sales

Sweet Stampin' - where the Challenge is : 'Something New (stash or event)' - mine is the papers and toy

Penny Black Saturday - where January's Challenge is 'Anything Goes'
