Penny Black and More August challenge.


Good Morning, here today with a new challenge at Penny Black and More.
The theme for this month is .. Say it with Flowers.

This month we are doing things slightly differently, the Design Team will be voting for their favourite entries using a Penny Black image. The winner will be announced in this months winners post and be invited to feature in our October challenge telling us a bit about themselves, why they love Penny Black stamps and showcasing a creation using one.


Here is my card.
Using Penny Black 30-570 Bunches for you.

The stamp is a T for Transparent and is really quite small and the card is just under 5 x 5"

Thank for popping by and any comments you are kind enough to leave.

Allsorts challenge 583/4 - Make it Masculine

Another two weeks challenge here at Allsorts and our lovely Tracy has  chosen the theme of ..

Make it Masculine.

We have a great stamp from Chocolate Baroque for one lucky winner.

Chocolate Baroque will be showcasing some exciting new stamps on Hochanda TV on Tuesday 4th August. Lesley will also be on our screens on Sunday 16th August with a new Craftalong, the kit for that show is available to purchase with a £5 discount from Hochanda.


I have used an old digital image for my card which I think is from Dr Digi.

I have paper pieced the chair but coloured everything else.
The paper is from LOTV.
Please do have a look at the challenge blog to see the lovely creations from the rest of the team.

Talk about one step forward and two steps back, I live in Calderdale and only a few miles from the Bradford border, so, once again we are in 'lockdown'. Not that we have ventured very far at all, only hairdressers once and supermarket late at night when it is very quiet and to Daughters when the weather is good and we can distance in the garden.

I have had a load of computer issues this week as well, has anyone else?
It never rains, but it pours!

Thanks so much for popping by and any comments you are kind enough to leave.

Rudolph meets Stamping Sensations

25th of the month so it is Rudolph Day over at ScrapyMo's.
Stamping Sensations challenge this month is 'All creatures great and small'.


The image is from a set of Christmas stamps from Hobby Art which are no longer available. Stamped three times, what did we do before we had our Stamping platforms?

Coloured mostly with ProMarkers but an odd Copic or two.
A tad of Wink of Stella on Rudolphs nose.
Sorry, but used peel offs for the sentiment, silver, coloured red as I wanted the sentiment to go as this one is and I didn't have a stamp that would do that.

I decided a week or so ago to stop making ordinary cards as I have far more than I need and to now concentrate on Christmas.

Thanks for popping by and any comments you are kind enough to leave.
