PBSC May Challenge!

Good Morning!
Apologies for being an extremely bad crafter this past month, life is just a little hectic at the moment! I can't wait for things to go back to some kind of normal one day ...
 Anyhoo back to today's subject which is a new challenge over at 
PENNY BLACK SATURDAY CHALLENGE and the theme is 
'Anything Goes or Inspired by a Song!'

I used one of my favourite Penny Black stamps for today's card which I sold a few years ago, unfortunately I can't seem to find it anywhere to buy again for myself which is a little bit annoying lol
I haven't intentionally played along with the optional theme but I'm pretty sure there's lots of songs about Sunflowers out there! I've kept it sentiment free so that it's versatile enough to be used for any occasion.
  INGREDIENTS -
Penny Black Cling Stamp

Doodlebug Sprinkles
INKS USED -

Good Afteroon!
 It's time for a new challenge over at PENNY BLACK SATURDAY CHALLENGE and the theme is 'Anything Goes or Ribbon / Twine!'
I'm extremely late with this month's card, as I mentioned in my previous post my life is pretty hectic at the moment as I work in a local shop ... you can imagine what working in retail is like right now. So I'm pretty exhausted! 
However I really wanted to make sure that I had something to share this month, it's extremely Clean & Simple but I thought that it was better than nothing!

You may have noticed that I've been a little quiet on the crafting front recently. What with everything that's going on in the world life has been a bit hectic for me at the moment as I work in a local Supermarket ...
Anyway I've made a card this morning to try and spread a little bit of cheer!
This week LOTV have released some new Easter designs and today's card is featuring one of them called 'Bunny with Egg Basket'. The sentiment I've used is also by LOTV which came out last year.

PBSC March Challenge - Anything Goes or Think Spring!

Good Morning!
 It's time for a new challenge over at PENNY BLACK SATURDAY CHALLENGE and the theme is 'Anything Goes or Think Spring!'
I unintentionally seem to be favouring a Pink & Yellow colour scheme recently and today's card is no different lol maybe it's because the colours remind me so much of Spring?
Just like last month I've used a floral Penny Black stamp for today's card and this one features some Pansies, they always provide lovely pops of colour in the garden at this time of year.

Penny Black 'Pansy Bouquet' Wooden Stamp

A Birthday Stroll

Good Morning!
I've taken a little break from the latest LOTV release today and used one of the older Digi's for today's card. It's my Dad's Birthday on Monday so I thought this vintage boy image of him taking a stroll with his pooch (my parents have a miniature wire-haired Dachshund) would be perfect for his card. 
I tried to colour the pooch with a wire-like style for the fur but I'm not entirely convinced if it actually worked ... or just looks a bit messy! lol
