Frequent Flyer


Happy Mother's Day to all the Mums in the UK - i'm in my craft room this morning playing, while the boys are at Rugby training and then we are going to have a chill out afternoon before i cook the dinner.

As today is the first Sunday in March, it also means a new Challenge over at Penny Black And More  and this month we would like you to 'Feature A Creature' and as usual we have some fabby sponsors :

Penny Black

Crafty Ribbons 

A Stamp From Me

Marianne Designs

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.

I've had this stamp for a while and was never sure what to do with it : Penny Black - 'Frequent Flyer - 2070K - 2001', i've added stickles to the dandylion and i've cut it with : Die-namics - 'Stitched Rounded Rectangle',  and embossed it, with : Elizabeth Craft Designs - 'Clouds Embossing Folder', that i have distressed with : Tim Holtz - 'Tumbled Glass', the papers are : Basic Grey - 'Wisteria', the sentiment is : LOTV - 'Everyday Grungy Messages', that i've embossed with clear embossing powder, the ribbon is from : The Ribbon Girls and the pearls are from my stash.

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

ABC  - where the Challenge is 'C For Cute'

Crafting For All Seasons - where Challenge No: 121 is 'Add Some Sparkle'

Simon Say's Stamp - where the Challenge is 'Touchy Feely'

Addicted To Stamps - where Challenge No: 121 is 'Glitter / Bling With A Stamp' - i've glittered the flower and i embossed the sentiment with clear embossing powder and it all sparkles more than the photo shows

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

Wonderful card! I really love that embossed cloud background mat. Perfect for my smaller embossing folder which is not large enough to use half way across a card!
