Dog Drumming


Harrison is on half term this week, so we are busy - Saturday was 'The Royal Albert Hall', London to see 'Cirque Du Soleil 'Amaluna', Sunday - Rugby training, Tuesday - bird watching at the local reserve, yesterday - Coconut Ice and Lemonade making (part of the Brighton Science Festival), today is a sports camp and tomorrow is a meet up with the children's author 'Sam Watkins' and is going to teach Harrison and his friends how to draw a comic strip.

We are up to half way over at Penny Black And More, where the Challenge is 'Anything Goes With A Stamp And Die/s' and as usual we have some fabby sponsors :

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 and 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.

This is a diddy card for me it's 4.5 inches square - today's image is : Penny Black - '12 Days Of Christmas / 30-016 / 2008 Transparent Set', cut with : Die-namics - 'Stitched Circles Stax', the Happy Birthday part of the sentiment - Penny Black - 'Sentiments / 30-025 / 2009 Transparent Set', Just A Note To Say part - Papermania - 'Clare Curd Signature Range', cut with : Die-nanics - 'Fishtail Banners', the musical notes: Memory Box - 'Virtuoso Music', the embossing folder is : Cuttlebug - 'Allegro' and all has been distresssed with : Tim Holtz 'Tea Dye', the paper is a snippet of - LOTV - 'On A High Note'

I am tired reading about your hectic week Sam, but all sounds great fun.

Love your card and the embossing on the inside carries the music theme perfectly.

See you over at the Playground, I have a few bottles stashed under the bench in the tree house if you pop up.
