Can't Help It !


Well my house officially went on the market, last Saturday - the painters finished on Wednesday and it was going really well and i was keeping Clio away from the gloss paint, but unfortunately Harrison opened the lounge door and let her out, i then spent the next 30 minutes with my tweezers taking all of the dog hairs off of the door frame !!!

Today is the first Sunday in the month and that means a new Challenge over at Penny Black And More and this month it's 'Your Favourite Stamp' and as usual we have some fabby sponsors too :

Penny Black 

Crafts U Love 


Stamp Addicts

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.

Most of you, who visit me, will be aware i'm 'Dog' mad, so i had to make a card using one, so i went for : Penny Black - 'Can't Help It ! / 3341H / 2005', the sentiment is : Penny Black - 'Doodles / 51-128 /2015', the papers are : Basic Grey - 'Hopscotch', one of the papers has been cut with : Die-namics - 'Stitched Rounded Rectangles'

The Challenges I Would Like To Are : 

I made this card after reading Sue's post on 'Hug A Heart Card Drive' sending cards to America for children with heart defects, so i've posted my card, to make sure it is there in time for 14th.

Simon Say's Stamp - where the Challenge is 'Color (colour) of Love'

Crafty Cardmakers  where the Challenge is 'Love Love Love'

Sweet Stamping - where the Challenge is 'Love Is The Air'

Addicted To Stamps - where Challenge No: 141 is 'Love'

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

I'm a doggy person too Sam and I love this super PB image. One I've not seen before! I really like your fun patchwork background too. Barbxx

a lovely card, I hope the house soon sells for you now you no longer have hairy doors lol

Sue said...

Awww, Sam this card is so cute. Thanks so much for sending it off to Christina. All children love dogs, so this will be a big hit and bring some happiness to someone special. I love the background you created too. Thanks again, Sam, and good luck with the house sale.



Hi Sam. Your card is so adorable! That doggy is just too cute with that smiley face and heart shaped ears. I look forward to seeing him in person. Thank you so much for helping us bring smile and encouragement to heart patient this Heart Month and for sharing about the card drive with other as well. We couldn't do this without all the amazing tender hearted card-makers such as yourself. Thank you! I'll be updating the final count at the end of the month with the winners of the giveaway prizes. Hope you can stop by to check that post out then.

Good luck on the sale of your home San. We have moved twice within last 6 years and I remember how much work that was getting the house in shape for the sale and then keeping it clean during showing. Not easy with 3 young kiddos. So I hope we don't ever have to move again. Haha. Best of luck to you for a fast sale and at the price you hope for. Have a lovely week Sam. Take care.

Good luck with the house sale. And I love this darling PB doggie. I really love the look of that quilted background, (and if it is patterned paper, not your creation of a bkground design, it's great paper). Every dog needs his blankie and this is one cutie of a card! TFS

Giggling at your tail (yes I did intend that spelling) of woe. I am due to have the hallway of my bungalow decorated next week and I am dreading it. It has 5 doors and frames that need glossing and a dog with a very long and hairy coat. You cannot go anywhere in my bungalow unless you access the hallway, so I shall have to get the dog crate out I think and imprison us both in one room until everything is dry!

Loving your very cute dog image.

Thank you so much for joining in with my Love, Love, Love challenge this time.
