Across The Threshold


I'm scheduling today's post, as we are currently cycling (with Clio, she has a dog carrier, that goes on the back of Alan's bike) in the New Forest, as Harrison has an inset day at school tomorrow.

Today is the first Sunday in July and that means a new Challenge at Penny Black And More  and this month, it's 'Anything Goes With A Stamp' and as usual we have some fabby sponsors :

Penny Black 

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  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.

Alan and I were invited to an ex-colleague of Alan's wedding last month and this is the card i made for it, taking in their colour combination, the image is : Penny Black - 'Across The Threshold / 257H / 1997', which has been highlighted with : Duvo - 'Glitter Drops' (but i'm not sure if it shows up very well), the papers are : DCWV - 'Wedding Mat Stack', the 'I Do' ribbon is : K I Memories, the plain one is from stash, the sentiment is : LOTV, the hanging hearts : Memory Box - 'Precious Hearts', the die behind the flowers is : Memory Box - 'Elegant Scrollwork', the punched heart edge is : Martha Stewart - 'Valentine Heart', the flowers are from : Wild Orchid Crafts, the heart pearls were from my stash.

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

Animal Friends  - where Challenge No: 40 is 'Dies And / Or Punches - must use an animal'

The Ribbon Girls - where July's Challenge is 'Anything Goes, as long as you use ribbon'

Stamping Sensations - where the July Challenge is 'Anything Goes With A Stamp And Ribbons'

Deep Ocean - where Challenge No: 132 is 'Colours Of Summer'

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