Buzzin Around

Penny Black Saturday Challenge

This weeks challenge is to create a card etc for
next weekend we shall all be getting ready to roll our
Easter Eggs or if you are like our Design Team.....just tucking into
their chocolate ones

We also have a prize of a set of Penny Black unmounted stamps on offer for one lucky winner

The Weekend at last Yipeeee!!!!, although I don't work I love the weekends because its time to see the family, I have some family news to share with you, its really exciting for me, my No.3 son James and DIL Vikki have been told that their third baby due at the end of July will be a Girl!!!! now you may think thats normal but after 4 sons and 6 Grandsons a Grand-daughter was a thing we only dreamed of. I cannot wait to buy all those lovely pretty clothes that I have looked at longingly for years.

Well down to todays DT card I have coloured the cute image with Copics, the papers are a free download, but I forgot to note from where I got it. The plain Lilac Paper has been sprayed with Crafters Companions New Glitter Spray although you cannot see on the Photo it is lovely and glittery and I am really impressed with this product. The Egg shaped Buttons are from stash, Flowers have been punched with Large and Medium Flower Punch, the little tiny flower buttons are from Silly Monkeys, Bryony has just uploaded these tiny buttons in lots of colours on the website. MSDP had to get in there somewhere, I cannot seem to make a card without them.
While I am on about new products have you seen the fabulous charms and spacers
Jill has uploaded to the website on The Hobby House, I just had to order all of them, the links to the website is on my sidebar.

I loosely carried the layout onto the inside of the card.

Thanks for looking
Jacqui xx
