Circus Act


My bank holiday weekend got off to a bang on Friday night, when i went to see 'An Audience With Natalie Lowe and Ian Waite' in Eastbourne, then on Saturday i went to a second hand craft sale and got a few bargains, will show you next time i post and today we are off to Singleton for their 'Food Festival.

Today is the first Sunday in the month, so therefore it's the new Challenge over at Penny Black And More, where this month it's 'Anything Goes With A Stamp' and as usual we have some fabby sponsors too :

Penny Black

Crafts U Love

Crafty Ribbons 

A Stamp From Me

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.

Alan asked me to make a Thank You card for the U9's Rugby manager from the coaches, personally i would have picked a more girly image for her, but i did my best to jazz / glitter it up !, the image is : Penny Black - 'Circus Act - 2084K -2001', the paper is : LOTV - 'On A High Note', the ribbon is an old Stampin' Up one, the banner is : Whiff Of Joy - 'Banner Border Die', the letters on the banner : Craft Emotions - 'Uppercase Alphabet', I've glittered the paper, collar on the dog, the letters on the banner with : Duvo Glitter Drops - 'White Blizzard', the card shape is : Tattered Lace - 'Stepper Die'

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

As You Like It - where the Challenge is 'Favourite Animal And Why' - mine is 'Dog', as i love walking my 4 paws and wet nose, having fun / playing with her and when i'm down, she always cheers me up.

DLArt  - where Challenge No: 179 is 'Mother's Day or Thankful'

Crafting For All Seasons - where Challenge No: 125 is 'Add A Banner'

Deep Ocean - where Challenge No: 127 is 'Dot And / Or Stripes'

Dream Valley - where Challenge No: 130 is 'Feature A Creature'

The Ribbon Girls - where the May Challenge is 'Anything Goes'

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