Allsorts challenge week 523 - Black and White plus one other colour.

Good Morning, it is my turn to host the challenge this week at Allsorts and I have chosen one of my favourite themes...

Black and White plus one other colour.

Our Sponsor this week is Stamp Addicts with a £15 voucher to spend in their store.

Stamp Addicts are releasing a brand new range of beautiful floral stamp sets tomorrow at 12noon on Hochanda TV, each stamp set designed by Teri Sherman include a large background stamp and two stand alone blooms and/or butterflies. 

If you check out the Allsorts challenge blog you will see two of their lovely new images used by Brenda.

I have used the Woodware stamp - Stiched Poppies
Stamped with Versafine Onyx Black and coloured with Promarkers Berry Red.
To be honest I didn't rush to buy this stamp as I really was not keen on all the grunge on the stamp but  bought it in the end,

Three eventful happenings this week,.

Came back from a lovely holiday and went down with a horrid cold, cough and sore throat.

The day we came home Grandsons and Mum and Dad went to Loch Lomond, so we haven't seen them for three weeks, on the plus side Lynda and Ethan (14) have both passed the test to drive a speed boat. Lynda says that Ethan is a natural and he was perfect in everything. Well I have always known that.

Before we went on holiday we had 6 eggs in our Blue Tit box and when we came home all the eggs had hatched and then on Tuesday they all flew the nest. This is the first time we have had all eggs hatch and all the birds lived to fly away.

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

Goes without saying I adore your Poppies Kath - a bit of grunge is good!

It's are a pair of birds will hatch so many eggs and all survive, they obviously have a good habitat in your garden.

Great theme thank you, enjoyed creating for it.

Poppies - love them and this is a gorgeous card. How lovely to have the baby blue tits.

Gorgeous poppies... love that there's just the black detailing around the flowers.

And you are lucky to have had blue-tits nesting.... we have a box up on a tree - have had it there for years, and it has never been lived in. Maybe I should get it listed on RightMove!
