Me New Stamp xxx

I got these pair of cuties from Butterfly Kisses when I was at the NEC last week. And I coloured it with those bad boy Pro Markets but there is not a smidgen of glitter to be seen.

This is obviously a bit of a rarity!!

So this is my card for this weeks Penny Black Saturday Challenge which this week is a gorgeous sketch by the very wonderful Tracie - and it's pink which is an added bonus :)) x

Not only is there no glitter, but there is no design paper either!
I must be ill lol xxxx

I used my Scor Pal to emboss a few background lines - this time on the diagonal. And my beloved punch is feeling a bit better so I gave it a gentle workout here - just to get it back in the swing of things!!!

The flowers are all punched using my E K Sucess and X Cut punches. I drew some lines with the Pro Marker pens, added some dots using a white gel pens and a black fine liner and then punched them out from that. And the plain coloured ones are done in the same way, except I just scribbled a bit on some white card and punched them out from that.


I bought those big brads from the girl who I helped with the craft sale a few months back. I'm guessing they came from QVC but I wouldn't swear to this.


The 2 narrow strips of card that look a bit like ribbon were made using the PMs again, just so it all matched. You can see the embossed lines a bit better here as well.


So I am in time with this challenge - well I'm fairly early really. Which is more than I can say for the chick card and the little bag for the Colour Create challenge ie the bag and the card.


Yes, the dope has struck again, cos I WAS in time on Friday with the card, but I forgot to do the linkie thing. Then this morning, when I had got the mini eggs and pics sorted, I remembered to go and link but when I got there, it had finished!!!


Never mind, my intentions were good!!


I'm just posting this between Dancing On Ice - I am hoping that Colleen goes out, as much for her own sake as ours, cos she looked to be in agony and I was wincing with her. She is lovely and I really like her, but she isn't in the same league as the others. But I had tears in my eyes when they showed her hubby crying cos it was their wedding song - ahhh how sweet.


And I thought Jessica and Daz avoiding skanky y-front boy Pav were wonderful tonight - she could give Ray a run for his money. It might end up like last year when we all thought Chris Fountain would win and Suzanne pipped him to the post!! You never know, stranger things have happened.


Like, for example, I might read the instructions properly over at the challenges and even better, the date they end by.


I'm off to watch part 2 and I'll be back manana for another Papertake Weekly.


Huggsies xxxx
