Hello Friend


I'm scheduling this post, as i'm away for a couple of days for half term, the Challenge this month at Penny Black And More is an 'Autumn Colour Palette' :

as usual we have some fabby sponsors too :

Penny Black 

Stamp Addicts 

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 for 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.

The inspiration behind today's card, is my take on an article by the lovely Julie, i saw in last month's Quick Cards Made Easy magazine, it was how to make easel shaker cards. The images are : Penny Black - 'Mushroom Hedgehog / 1034E / 1998' and 'Guess What ? (well half of it) / 1449K / 2000', the sentiments is : Penny Black - 'Hello Friend / 30-069 / 2011', the papers are : First Edition - 'New Leaf', the shaker bit was cut using : Tonic - 'Square Layering Dies', the leaves are : Whimsy Stamps - 'Leaf Trio Die Set' and the mushroom border is : Joy Crafts - '6002/0317'

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

this is so sweet sam! i love those adorable hedgies out collecting mushrooms, although they look like they might not need any more. :) i also love the row of mushrooms and i've never tried an easel shaker card - looks like fun.
