Hedgy Flavour


Gee what a scorcher and we took advantage of the weather on Saturday and had a 'Quintessentially English' day out - we first went to  Lordington Lavender, then had a pub lunch, then we went to a local Church fete, where H played croquet and crazy golf, then it was a cream tea.

Today we are up to mid month at Penny Black And More and the Challenge is 'Anything Goes With A Stamp' and as usual we have some fabby sponsors too :

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.

I made this card about a month ago, when the weather wasn't so good, but it seems perfect for now !!, the image is : Penny Black - 'Hedgy Flavor / 2354F / 2002', the papers are : Dovecraft - 'Back To Basics', the sentiment is : LOTV - 'Sentiment Tags', the corner die is : Joanna Sheen - 'Lace Corners 1', the ribbon and gems are from stash. The card design is a new one for me, but i love how it frames the image.

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

The Ribbon Girls -where July's Challenge is : 'Anything Goes, as long as it's got ribbon'

Cutie Pie - where Challenge No: 101 is 'Polka Dots and Pastels' 

Di's Snippets Playground - where the lovely Di is up to Week No: 238

In The Pink - where Challenge No: 98 is 'All Or Nothing' 

Stempelgarten  - where Challenge No: 51 is 'Summer Holidays' 

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

What a lovely pretty in pink card Sam! Love the image (so very apt right now!!) and also loving that unusual layout you used. It does make a perfect frame. Needless to say PB hedgies always tick the boxes for me :)

sounds like a lovely day out and one that is frequently used as the theme for midsomer murders. :) aww, that little hedgie enjoying an ice cream is perfectly suited to days like today; lately we've been having unusually hot and humid weather and i'm not enjoying it!
