PBSC January Challenge Reminder!

Good Morning!
I don't usually get the chance to create a second monthly DT card for the PENNY BLACK SATURDAY CHALLENGE but I needed to make a Birthday Card for the other half and after looking through my stamps I thought this one by PB would be perfect for him! 
We have a Jack Russell so I've coloured the pooch in this stamp with the same fur patterns as ours ... fingers crossed he likes it when he opens the card next week!
Incase you don't already know the challenge theme this month is 
'Anything Goes + Something New!'
 INGREDIENTS -
Penny Black Stamp
Sentiment stamp from Lili of the Valley
Maja Design Papers - Summertime
Doodlebug Sprinkles
Cheesecloth, Ribbon, Paper Doily, Wooden Stars & Wooden Star Buttons
INKS USED -

I really enjoyed making this card, and it might even end up on my shelf in the Craft Room.

Creative Inspirations January Challenge!

HAPPY NEW YEAR!
As today is Wednesday we're kick starting the year with a brand new challenge over at
CREATIVE INSPIRATIONS
This month's theme is 'Something New or Something Old!'
I'd like to see your creations featuring something new to your craft stash. Whether you treated yourself to a new stamp or some papers ... or you could do the opposite and use something that you've had sitting in your stash for ages that's become neglected! For example a favourite stamp that you haven't used for years ...
Please state what the item is that you have chosen.

This month's prize is from a brand new sponsor that have kindly agreed to join us for January! CLEARLY BESOTTED are offering the winner a $15 GIFT E-CARD!
I combined both of these themes for this challenge -
Something Old - Design Papers
Something New - Using one of the images on the Design Paper for my focal point.


 INGREDIENTS -
Maja Design Papers
Sentiment stamp from Lili of the Valley
Doodlebug Sprinkles
Cheesecloth, Ribbon, Paper Doily & Assorted Flowers

My Favourite Cards from 2019 ... Part 2!

Good Morning!
I'm back with the second part of my favourite cards from 2019.
Admittedly there are a couple of Christmas cards that have sneaked in ...

JULY
Christmas in July is perfectly normal for a Crafter, I usually start my Christmas cards around this time. This design was released from LOTV this year and was on my favourite Christmas designs that came out.
AUGUST
Back to something more seasonal is this birthday card using a Gnome stamp by Stamping Bella. Gnomes aren't everyone's cup of tea but isn't he a sweetie?!
SEPTEMBER
Flying us into Autumn is this Fairy from The Paper Shelter, I used a natural colour scheme and added some sparkle to her wings.
OCTOBER
LOTV are also known for their Vintage Boy stamps and this is another new design that came out this year. It always feels strange to me not adding flowers to my cards, but I managed to substitute them with some little star buttons.
NOVEMBER
Back to the Gardening theme with this card, I found this stamped image in my stash which I'd shamefully forgotten about so inked her up as soon as I had the chance! She's by Hanglar & Stanglar but unfortunately I don't have the actual stamp and I also don't know it's name!
This is another card that I've got sitting on a shelf in my Craft room.
DECEMBER
Finally I had to cheat a little with this month's selection, it's actually from November but I'd already used all my December favourite's in my Top 5 Christmas Card post! This stamp is from LOTV which came out a few years ago, I love the vintage style of it.
Well I hope you've enjoyed looking at my card selection! 
Hopefully you'l join me in 2020 along with whatever new creations I make!
HAPPY CRAFTING!
