Penny Black 30 ~ Embossing & Sketch Satuday 32

HAPPY NEW YEAR

everyone, hope you are all well and had a lovely Christmas and santa was good to you all.
I got lots of lovely pressies, although no crafting goodies - but that's not so bad as diamonds are better, lol.....
I warn you this is going to be a long post ~ so I apologise now...... SORRY !!!


Well its it the first challenge of the new year for

We thought we'd ease you in gentle with something simple
We have a gorgeous stamp this week ~ kindly donated by Paula at Pollycrafts



As i missed out on the Multifold card before Christmas, I thought I'd challenge myself this week... and when I started this card I didn't think it would turn out so Festive looking - so I apologise, I wasn't meant to be... honest !! But I do love it !!




I didn't fill in the hidden message as I thought I'd wait till I send it !!
Dont forgot to pop over and check out all the fabulous cards by the Design Team, they surely have made some gorgoeus cards again for us....


Cardstock: Basic Grey ~ Scarlets Letter
Image: PB Sentiment
Supplies: Blooms ~ Prima & Poppicrafts, Pearls & Brads ~ Stash

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
Well this week its the very talented Emma's turn for DT Week and what a fabulous sketch she had created this week ~ Thanks Emma I had lots of fun with this one....


I kept my card simple this week as didn't have much time to make it, works so busy and we're looking at moving to a new home soon so have been house hunting, and I'm please to say the one we're looking at this afternoon seems promising... so fingers crossed.....



I've used the gorgeous new download from Pink Petticoat ~ Old fashioned Girl..... just love this download, it has a great selection of papers and images for Valentines, so thought I'd get a head start as it'll be creeping up on us shortly...
Don't forgot to pop over and see all the gorgoeus work from the DT and Emma is also offering this weeks prize... so don't delay....

Ok almost done ..........................
