Penny Black Saturday Challenge

The theme this week over at Penny Black is "Get Well Soon"

I have chalked the background and used my Prisma´s to colour PB´s Arrangement image and added some glamour dust to flowers then raised this onto a nestie and again onto PM´s Retro Flower papers.I don´t have a get well soon stamp so had to use peel off´s and some flat backed gems then finished off with some toffee treats and Bosscut flourish.

ABC , One Stop Craft & Papertake Weekly Challenges

What a dreadful day and night we had yesterday, horrendous thunderstorms and torrential rain which left us without electricity for far too many hours. I hope you are all keeping nice n snug and warm whilst your snow falls heavily in UK and elsewhere. So much for the sunny costa´s as it is bitterly cold here too.

Righty ho I actually managed a card today but boy oh boy why does one realise the problem they have until it´s too late. I had only lost one of those little cushion nose pads of my glasses so eyesight was more than a bit wonky to say the least so believe me I now know you can teach an old dog new tricks teehee.

Over on ABC this week it is Y for Yesteryear so out came this pretty little flower from the Floral Set of See D´s which I bought about 3 years ago. I have coloured this with Prisma´s and added a touch of stickles then matted and layered this onto a hand embroidered background of hearts which also falls into the theme over at Papertake Weekly which is to use Hearts and Flowers, or both . One Stop Craft Challenge theme this week is Buttons and Bows so I have used both ribbon and buttons from stash.Basic Grey Boxer dp and a bit bugging complete my card.
