Penny Black Challenge & Friday Sketchers


Friday Sketchers Challenge

I Hope you are not getting bored by popping over here and seeing dear Henry everyday but I am so enamoured with this little mouse I just cannot stop using him. I loved this weeks Friday Sketchers Challenge quite simple but a great way to show off new papers and a great image.



Of course by now you probably know where Henry originates from, but if by some slim chance you haven't met him before this and lots of other scrumptious Henrys is available from Whiff of Joy. He has been coloured with Distress Inks (Broken China, Tea Dye, Worn Lipstick) with lots of glamour dust added to the bauble and his hat. These super delicious papers arrived today from The Hobby House they are by Heidi Grace and can be found Here. Snowflakes are a mixture of Sizzix and Cuttlebug Dies.






Penny Black Saturday Challenge

We have a lovely challenge for you this week on Penny Black Saturday Challenge LACE and PEARLS right up my street, as usual we have a great prize and some amazing DT cards to get you started.



I had been asked to make a Baby Congrats card so this was a great excuse to use one of my Fav PB stamps, Hedgie has been coloured with Copics and 3d, this is one of the easiest stamps to 3d. The papers are Nanas Nursery (Girl) from Bunny Zoes Craft, The Pink Nestie Circle has been embossed with the Rose Cuttlebug Folder and the fabulous lace is from Tabby Crafts.


Hope you all have a wonderful weekend, and for all those lovely people who asked Mums scan went without a hitch, and I think it did her good just to get out of the house, thanks for asking.

Thanks for looking
Hugs
Jacqui xx
