Penny Black Gossamer

Good evening all.

I was so pleased to be able to squeeze in some craft time this afternoon and here's a card to share:

I have been making so many CAS cards of late that I didn't add too much to this one. But considering that the papers are quite busy I felt it didn't need it.

The stamp is Penny Black 'Gossamer' 3865K and the papers are First Edition 'New Bloom'.
I used one Promarker and the charm and twine is from my stash.

So that's it for today I'm off to watch the X Factor!
Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a lovely evening.

Rudolph Day Challenge

Good morning all.

Two cards to show today for Sarn's Rudolph Day Challenge:

The paper and sentiment is from Pink Petticoat (I triple printed the paper). Everything else is from my stash.
It made a nice change not to stamp or colour today's cards so they were made quite quickly ;)

After a sort out of my stamps etc. I have decided that I should go through the things that I haven't used yet so hopefully Darnell will have a challenge again soon to kick me into shape!

Thanks for stopping by and hope you have a fabulous day.

Close Knit Kitty

Hello there - I have just come from my other blog to enter the Less Is More Challenge 'Animal':

Items used:
Whiff of Joy 'Close Knit Kitty' G486
Stampin Up sentiment 'And Many More' 134276 + punches
Kim Macfarlane paper

If there is one challenge that I really struggle with it is 'Less Is More'. I find it so difficult to know what to put where and if it is 'enough'. But hopefully this one will pass - in actual fact I am secretly quite pleased with it!! - shock! (very rare for me to be happy with my cards!)

So that's my share for today - thanks for visiting.

Penny Black 'Scented Garden'

Good evening lovely blog people!
Hope that you have had a good day and the weather has been good to you.

A Penny Black card to share with you today:

Items used:
Penny Black 'Scented Garden' 4133J
Nitwits 'In the meadow' papers
Pink Petticoat sentiment
Fiskars flower punch
Liquid Pearls

I am not lucky enough to own this cute little mouse as I bought several black and white stamped images from ebay. This is a cheap way of getting your hands on the images but also so many PB stamps are retired so it is difficult to buy them new. I don't understand this as I am sure that there are lots of PB fans out there who would buy the stamps so why retire them?

Anyway I'd better go and put my chickens to bet as one of them keeps flying on top of the coop at night instead of going inside!

Thanks for visiting my blog today.
