Bright & Breezy

Happy Easter to all my blogging friends, hope you have a wonderful Bank Holiday weekend.
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 challenges these could be the ones for you.

At Stamping Sensations this month the theme is 'One For The Girls' , I made a Birthday card for my Weight Watchers Buddy, we text each other daily supporting each other and helping each other when we are lacking will power, this card just seemed to some all this up.  I started with the washing line, added the pegs and clothes, then paper pieced the dress and bra.  Did a distressed inked background, added grass and some birds and my sentiment.  The stamps are a freebie set from a magazine, and I really enjoyed using them.

We have sponsorship this Month from

'be Creative!  with a £25 voucher

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. Cute card Thursday - #523 - Add A Quote
2. Crafty Creations - #363 - Anything Goes
3. Simon Says Stamp Wednesday - Anything Goes

And now onto my second challenge creation for Penny black & More @ Allsorts, where the theme is 'Black, White + One' So you can use black and white then choose one other colour  for this challenge.  I chose orange as my + one colour, using these geese I thought an Anniversary card would be good.  I started by using distressed ink for a background then die cut a heart and inking that too. I then used some stamps round the edge and using foam pads after fussy cutting my geese put them in the centre.  I die cut a frame and added sentiments.

We have prizes from Penny Black, Woodware stamp, Sizzix. 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.

Great scene building on the card Tracy and what a perfect one for your Weight Watchers friend.

And your PB&M creation has such a lovely warm glow to it and the delicate white border really draws the eye to the Ducks.

Happy Easter.

What darling cards, Tracy. I love the sentiment on the first one and your paper pieced images are beautiful. Makes me want to get out some cute bra dies I have been neglecting and make some girlfriend cards. What a perfect card for your WW buddy.
