Forest Friends














Good Morning bloggers, it's Saturday morning so It's time for a new challenge today at Allsorts.
This week is my turn to host and I would like to see 'Forest Friends', there's lots of options for this, you could have Badgers, Squirrels, Hedgehogs and Deer etc...................

I did not know I was going to use this stamp when I picked the theme, thought I would have gone for some mice actually, I don't use this stamp a lot as it's quite big and hard to embellish up.  It comes in a set and part of that set is the acorn border stamp which I used.


Don't forget to head over to Allsorts for all the details of this challenge, and to check out all the fabulous inspiration from my very talented team mates.

Here are the prizes on offer:-

Beep Beep!
























Good Morning bloggers, it's Saturday morning so It's time for a new challenge today at Allsorts.
This week is our lovely Mervi's turn to host and she would like to see 'Colours Of Your Flag'

As mine is the British flag (Union Jack) my colours on my card are Red, White and Blue.  When I think of the Union Jack flag I think of this Mini from Penny Black,  then I thought about my Daughters driving test next week and thought it would be the perfect image.  I know I'm being a bit premature but she has to pass at some point.
