Vintage, Wings And In The Garden!

Hi all,
And welcome, it's a new month for Stamping Sensations 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 Stamping Sensations this month the theme is "Wings And Things With A Touch Of Vintage" So get out anything with wings on and give it a vintage look. It's really not as scary as it sounds so why not give it a try.  I made a note book for a change, used my Nitwit papers and used my favourite Distress Ink Brushed Corduroy to distress them.  I find that Vintage Photo can be a little dark sometimes, added some lace and  tickets with some sentiments on.

We have sponsorship this Month from

Crafty Devils

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. Addicted To Stamps - challenge # 56 - Anything Goes
2. Crafty Calender - Anything goes
3. 2 Sisters challenge - challenge 155 - Anything Goes
4. Lili's Little Fairies - Here Come The Girls

And now onto my second challenge creation for Penny black & More @ Allsorts, where the theme is "In The Garden" So you can use flower stamps, or anything to do with the garden for this challenge.  I used this cute bear sat among the flowers, birds and bees.

We have prizes from Penny Black, Crafts U Love and Classy Crafts. Now isn't that a lot of prizes, definitely worth getting your animal 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.
