Sweet Slumber / Penny Black & More


We are up to our half way reminder for January at  Penny Black And More  and our Challenge this month is 'Love And Romance' and we have some super sponsors too :

Penny Black

Crafty Devils

Crimson Cloud

Flonz Crafts

And remember 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.

And this is what i made :

I bought this gorgeous stamp, from 2000 just before Christmas on a certain auction site (and i have wanted it for ages), i stamped round the edge with Penny Black - 'Scrolling Along !', the sentiment is : Penny Black - 'Hugs! - Transparent Set', the papers were bought in the 'My Crafty Heart' 30% Xmas Sale : Bo Bunny 'Sweet Tooth Collection', now i've seen this super die in blogland and i had to have it, so just before Xmas i gave in and bought it !! : La La Land Crafts - 'Hearts Banner', the heart edging is : Crafty Sentiments Design - 'Fancy Floral', the wooden button is from - Hobbycraft and i've distressed it with : Tim Holtz - 'Picked Raspberry'.

Today's Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are : 

Papertake Weekly - where the Challenge is 'New Year New Stash' - my new is : the mouse stamp, the papers, and the hearts die

Penny Black Saturday Challenge - where January's Challenge is 'New' - i've gone for New Stash : the mouse stamp, the papers, and the hearts die

Sparkles  - where Challenge No: 52 is 'Show Us Your New Stash' - and they are the mouse stamp, the papers and the heart die

Without Words - where January's Challenge is 'Spots and /or Stripes'
