Well it's been nice to be able to chill out, now H has gone back to school and last weekend we went back to Gloucester to get our shoes that Alan and I left behind at the beginning of August !!

Today is mid way point of Penny Black And More and the Challenge is 'Anything Goes With 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.

Today's card was made for one of Harrison's friends, the images are from the transparent set : Penny Black - 'Zoophabet / 30-015' (the hat had a flower on it, but because it was for a boy, that's why i have added a star brad), the sentiment is : LOTV - 'Vertical Sentiments', cut with : Die-namics - 'Fishtail Flags Stax', the papers were bought in a pack, with no name on them, but to me they look a bit like DCWV, what do you think ?

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

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

Di's Snippets Playground  - where the lovely Di is up to Week No: 247

Stempelgarten  - where Challenge No ; 53 is 'Anything Goes'

Stamping Sensations - where September's Challenge is 'One For The Boys'

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

It's me again Sam! You just totally enabled me to run away and buy that fabulous PB stamp set. It took some tracking down and could only find the one at a decent price for sale but am so excited! I make cards for our little neighbours here - six of them in total and all are boys. These stamps will be a lifesaver - for a whole year at least :) Thanks!

Awesome card, Sam, and kids just love when it has their name on it! I think I have this set, will have to open a drawer and revisit it.
