I Don't Do Wet Mornings

What an awful day today, and more promised for the whole of the weekend. Was hoping the weathermen had got the forecast wrong. No such luck. Got myself ready to take Archie out for his morning walk, it was gone 9 so thought he'd be desperate to get out. Well as you can see by the photo he definitely does not do wet mornings. I'm sure he was pulling tongues at me as tho' to say "Not going out , and I'm not going to open my eyes for you either so there!!!" I still love him tho' and he did come out eventually.

Pink & Brown Birthday Wishes

There's a new blog about. The challenge blog is called Pink {Ink} Sketch Challenge. I need all the help I can get when I'm making new cards, so I love blogs that supply sketches for you to use. This is Pink {Inks} first sketch (one of many I hope). The stamp I've used is Gillian Roberts Under my Umbrella (how cute is she). I've used First Edition Papers called Summer Breeze, the sentiment is Stampin' Up and the flower is Prima. I've chosen the colours pink and brown so that I can enter Spoon Full of Sugars Challenge 160 which is a colour challenge.

Good Luck Wishes

My friends son is joining the navy this month. As soon as I saw Dangling Sea Edwin, I thought that it was such an appropriate stamp for him. I used K & Co papers called Roam, the Banner Die is from Papertrey, and the ships wheel charm I bought from The Ribbon Girl. I added glossy accents to the anchor but not sure if you can see it or not and little black pearls on Edwins jacket. I'm entering this card into 3 challenges:-

Allsorts Challenge 111 - Free and Easy
Simon Says Stamp Challenge - Anything Goes
Everybody Art Challenge #150 - Maritime

Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Week 159

The challenge at Penny Black this week is "Christmas in July". I knew straight away which stamp I was going to use. I've been wanting to ink up Christmas Usher for a while now. I heat embossed her with Tinsel Gold, and because I thought she looked so nice decided against using any patterned paper. I think I'll be using her a few times this year for my cards.
