Pinecones and Poinsettias


Glad to report, bar shoulder, flu jab doesn't seem to have affected me that much, thank goodness.

Today is mid point at Penny Black And More and the Challenge is 'Anything Christmas With Stamping' and as usual we have some fabby sponsors too :

Penny Black 

Crafts U Love

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.

Following Marianne's Ebay bargain - i thought i would show mine, this group of stamps were in 2 lots and i got the whole lot for £27 (including postage) and i was only after 'Wishlist' (the mouse with the list !!)

This card is for Alan's Dad, as he doesn't do cute or bows. I've used 2 of my bargain stamps today : Penny Black - 'Pinecones and Poinsettias / 1281L / 1998', the sentiment : Penny Black - 'Christmas Wishes / 949E / 1996' and was embossed with : WOW - 'Gold Embossing Powder', the scrap of gold paper is : Bo Bunny - 'Silver And Gold Collection'

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

Stamping Sensations - where the Challenge is 'Christmas Greetings'

Snippets Playground - where the lovely Di is up to Week No : 255

ABC Christmas - where they are up to 'W is for Wishes'

Winter Wonderland - where the Challenge is 'Poinsettias or Snow Falling' 

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