Gardening Bunnies


We had a lovely time on our holiday in the Isle Of Wight and as promised here are a couple of photos :

Clio running out of the sea, she absolutely loved it  

Today is the start of a new Challenge over at Penny Black And More and this month it's 'Add A Sentiment' and as usual we have some fabby sponsors too :

Penny Black 

Marianne D



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 don't do many CAS cards, but i felt this suited it perfectly the image is : Penny Black - 'Gardening Bunnies / 1088K / 1998', the sentiment is : Penny Black - 'True Friends / 3852E / 2008', the paper is : Dovecraft - 'Curiosity Corner', the curve is : Spellbinders - 'A2 Curved Borders One', the twine is from my stash.

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

Di's Snippet's Playground - where the lovely Di is up to Week No; 245 

Darnell's NBUS Challenge  - where Darnell is up to her 7th Challenge - mine never before used schtuff is the image and sentiment - i bought the image from ebay (because it was a PB) and have never got round to using it !!

Penny Black Saturday - where September's Challenge is 'Nature'

Simon Say's Stamp - where the Challenge is 'Anything Goes'

That's Crafty - where Challenge No: 9 is 'All Square'

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

Your holiday photos are wonderful! Such a great shot of Clio!! Thank you for following up on Di's suggestion that you come and play in my NBUS Challenge! I enjoyed having you and hope to see you again! I don't see any way to subscribe by mail to your blog or follow you. If you ever change that, please let me know. Your card is absolutely fabulous! You should do CAS more often!! I love every little detail!! Enjoy your day! Hugs, Darnell

Jocelyn aka JoBear2 said...

Looks like you had a lovely holiday! Great photo of Clio! Dogs do love the beach, don't they?! Our old dog Jessie used to get so excited as soon as she could smell the beach through the car window. And so soon as we opened the car door, she would take off and run and run and run. She would be utterly exhausted by the end of the visit & would sleep like a log!

Your card is gorgeous Sam - just love the image - haven't seen that one before but it's now on my Wish List lol!!

Thank you for your note, Sam! I see the follower thumbnails now and I'm a follower. When I was here a couple of weeks ago, none of that was showing on your side bar. I was having terrible problems with Blogger being able to follow blogs or even have the Followers gadget show up on blogs! So frustrating, but the important thing is we are all good now! Hugs, Darnell

Sue from Oregon said...
