February Challenge - Penny Black Saturday Challenge

            Good Morning!

Today we have a new challenge over at PENNY BLACK SATURDAY CHALLENGE. 
This month's challenge is 'Anything Goes with the Option of  Hearts and/or Flowers!'
I've made a clean and simple card using one of the older hedgie stamps, they will always be my favourite Penny Blacks. I kept this card sentiment free so that it was versatile to be used for any occasion .. oh and it's one of my smaller designs on a 3x3 base.

INGREDIENTS -
Penny Black stamp
Assorted Dew Drops from stash

Happy 40th Birthday!

   Good Evening!
It's been a long time since I've had a card to share with you all that wasn't made for one of the Design Teams that I'm in. Today's card is one that I made for a family friend who turns 40 later this week. It was the perfect opportunity to dig out one of my older Stamping Bella stamps!
It's been a rather grey and dull afternoon so unfortunately even with a daylight lamp this photo isn't the most flattering lol
