Saturday Stunners


Penny Black Saturday Challenge

BUTTONS AND BOWS

so it's time to raid the button box and look out the ribbons and get bowmaking
as always you can create a card.....altered art..bag..notebook or scrap layout...the only RULE being that you use at least one Penny Black image or sentiment.



This is going to be a rushed post I am off into town this morning and have managed to get a lift from a neighbour, I want to get a bit of blog hopping done as well before I go.

This was one of the first PB stamps I ever bought and I still love her, she has been coloured with copics. The images and backing card have been cut with Labels Nesties and the red card out through the cuttlebug in a star folder. Buttons and Ribbons from Stash and Rose from Tabbycrafts. Paper from Hobby House.


Cute Card Thursday

Another challenge I haven't joined in for ages, so pleased to be able to do so this week, the challenge is SO CHARMING they would like to see a charm somewhere on your card. A fabulous prize is on offer a $25 gift voucher donated but the fantastically generous Heidi from Simon Says Stamp.



Today I have used Emma a fabulous stamp designed by Elizabeth Bell for SCACD and available to buy in the UK from Crafters Companion. She has been coloured with Distress Inks, The papers are Nanas Nursery available from Bunny Zoes Crafts as is the Cat Charm, the flowers were punched from the same papers and distress around the edges with Distress Ink.


Image has been cut with Labels Nesties and also distressed round the edges. The rest is from stash. Sorry its so brief may be back this afternoon.

Thanks for looking
Hugs
