Penny black Saturday.....

Real quickie post as i'm expecting guests any minute this is the card I have made for the PBSC which is a fab sketch

The stamp is one of the penny Black slapstick stamp and she is a real cutie
Papers are from stash and  unfortunatley have no product name on them....

Have a great weekend!

Allsorts week 70!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Good Morning crafters what a windy week it has been in Yorkshire and i'm sure in many other parts if the blusteryness of this week is anything to go by this is excactly how i felt going to work this week lol
Poor Pooh and Piglet I know exactly how they felt (isnt this a beautiful picture!)

Anyway back to this weeks challenge at Allsorts which has been set by the lovely Fleur she would like to see you using 3 punches on your entries this week...

I used my newest Penny Black stamp which was bought for me by my lovely boss at work who picked it up in the paper mill whilst away for the weekend now she doesnt know much about the type of stamps I use but she said as soon as she saw it she knew i'd love it how kind was that!!!!

Kept to the cool blue theme with plenty of sparkly Diamond stickles the papers are from my stash and are from a craft trip last christmas...

My three punches are

Fiskars - threading water punch
Crafts too you - 1" 6 petal flower
Baker Ross- snowflake punch

Had a great time at the GNPE at Harrogate last weekend and bought tons of ribbon (amongst a heap of other stuff I 'needed') so keep your eyes peeled for tons of the lovely stuff in the next few weeks.

Allsorts week 69 The colours of Autumn

This week its Brendas turn to choose the theme and she would like to see the colours of Autumn on your entries....

I have used one of my all time fav stamps from last years Autumn collection from Whiff of Joy she is fab to colour and if you mask off the leaves she can be used for anything.
The papers are from a 6x4 stack and are the last i had left and they are so nice!!

The flowers are from wild orchid crafts and the stems of pearls are from my stash...

Dont forget there is still a chance to win a spot on the Design Team over at PENNYBLACK at Allsorts and theres a fab challenge too especially if you love your punches...

Something to share........

I've been playing on my computer tonight making some of the larger sentiments I have been seeing around blogland especially good for the base layer on easel cards.

I'd like to share with you the sheet of sentiments i've created and i'm pretty sure if you click on the pic and save you'll be able to save them on your computers and resize as nessesary in you publishing/printing programs even cut/crop and paste them in  a publishing program to add directly to card blanks...
(they will have a white background  I think so best to print onto white)

Let me know if they transfer ok and if you use them on any cards please leave me a link so I can visit and take a peek,
also if you do take them so i know if is something thats in demand please leave a comment and add alink in your sidebar as I may do some more...
