Penny Black

At Ally Pally last week, I treated myself to a sheet of clear stamps from Penny Black. They are the first Penny Black stamps I've had and they are so cute. Here are a few of the cards (I've made so many) that I have created using the stamps and my pile of scraps.

This card I copied from this month's Papercraft Inspirations, I'm such a cheat.

Aimee's photo frame

My daughter Aimee decided to do some crafting this week. She first took an old jigsaw piece which she painted with pink acylic paint. Used 2 butterfly peeloffs and coloured them in adding stickles for a bit of sparkle. She then added a photo of herself on her 1st birthday and a letter A, finishing off with a piece of ribbon to hang it.

I think it's a great piece.

MTTC - Denim

The challenge at My time to Craft this week is denim, so I picked this lovely little cowboy stamped and gave him denim jeans and waistcoat.

One stamp - 3 cards

I challenged myself to use an old stamp. So I found this cupcake stamp which I watercoloured in various colours to make 3 colour variations of the same card.

A successful day

Hooray.....I've crafted again. I don't where my mojo had gone but it turned up again whilst I was doing my housework. I have put my cricut to good use again today to cut out some lettering for some simple named cards, one for a Mum, I don't know whose though and one for Mr & Mrs that could be used for either wedding or anniversary I suppose. I have also made a 'man' card using a stamped image that I've watercoloured and a Nan card using elements of a Cosmo Cricket TSV that I bought a while ago but haven't used much of.

It was also my Husband's birthday today and I'm ashamed to say I bought a card.
