Friendship And Love

Hi all, Hope you have had a wonderful Christmas and a Happy New Year and enjoyed all the festivities.

And welcome, it's a new month for Sir Stampalot and Penny Black & More @ Allsorts challenges, if you didn't get the chance to join in last month's challenge this could be the one for you.

At Sir Stampalot this month the theme is "Friendship" So anything for a friend will be fab for our challenge. It won't be any surprise to my regular blogging friends that I used a House Mouse image.  It is called "Italian Feast", and I'm sure all these little mice are good friends sharing this food together.  I kept it quite simple as the image is so detailed and I just loved colouring it.

We have this wonderful prize for the lucky winner.  You won't get stuck with what to do with this prize LOL.

And of course, the Design Team have created some stunners to inspire you. Please do pay them a visit to their individual blogs - it means a lot to know you appreciate their efforts.

This is for the following challenges:-
1. Ladybug crafts - Anything Goes
2. Crafty Creations - #202 - Anything Goes
3. Papertake Weekly - Anything goes
4. Crafty Catz - #164 - Anything goes
5. Stampin' For The weekend - Anything goes

And now onto my second challenge creation for Penny Black & more @ Allsorts, where the theme is "Love Is In The Air" So you can use any stamp to do with LOVE for this challenge. I have used Penny Black's "Loving and Hugging", and kept the embellishments soft and simple.

We have prizes from Penny Black, Sir Stampalot, Crimson Cloud, Classy Crafts, and Crafty Ribbons. Now isn't that a lot of prizes, definitely worth getting your LOVE stamps out isn't it!!!!!!

Now if you would like to be a GDT for us, all you need to do is make a creation to fit the theme following our rules and put GDT after your name on the Linky.

Gorgeous House Mouse card, Tracy, it really sums up friendship. I like the way you've put the image at an angle, it makes it more dynamic. The background paper is very pretty.

The PB card looks really bright and springlike, and what a fab image! Love the butterfly. Where is it from?
