My Bengal


I'm hoping Mr Blogger is going to be nice to me, as right now we are having fun at Longleat Safari Park watching 'The Festival Of Light' and yesterday we were in Salisbury for the Christmas markets.

Today we are at the mid way point at Penny Black And More and this month the Challenge is - 'Black, White And One Other Colour' - today i went for Orange and as usual we have some fabby sponsors too :

Penny Black

Marianne Designs

Crafty Ribbons

A Stamp From Me

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.

I've made this card for Harrison, as it's his Birthday on 3rd January and he supports 'Castleford Tigers', so i found this image in my collection, but i masked off the caterpillars : Penny Black - 'My Bengal / 3834H / 2008'. which i stamped and embossed on to vellum, the papers are : Stampin' Up, the punched edge is : E K Success - 'Paw Print', the ribbon is from stash, and the sentiment is : Penny Black - 'Wishes / 51-036 / 2014'

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

Crafty Creations - where Challenge No: 300 is 'Masculine'

Animal Friends - where Challenge No ; 45 / December is 'Everything / Anything Goes'

The Ribbon Girls - where December's Challenge is 'Any Image' - use ribbon

Challenge Up Your Life - where Challenge No: 56 is 'Vellum' - i've stamped my image on to vellum 

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