Sleepy Critters
















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 challenges these could be the ones for you.

At Stamping Sensations this month the theme is "Poppy Inspired", So get out any of your Poppy stamps. Well i just couldn't help myself, I had to use one of my little mousey stamps, he's so cute taking a nap in the shade of this Poppy, and Poppies are my favourite wild flower.

We have sponsorship this Month from
Stamps By Chloe and this is the prize:-

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.

Tis is for the following challenges:-
1. The squirrel And The Fox - Challenge # 51 - Spring or Autumn
2. Anything Goes - challenge # 100 - In The Garden & butterflies
3. Cute Card Thursday - challenge 284 - Things with Wings
4. Stampin' For The Weekend - Colours Of Summer























And now onto my second challenge creation for Penny black & More @ Allsorts, where the theme is a "fab sketch, and I love using sketches and to use Autumn colours too".  So you can use either the sketch or autumn colours for this challenge.

September sketch
I decided to do something a little different with my image, I stamped it twice and decoupaged the rabbit, just to make it a little more lifelike and fluffy.

















We have prizes from Penny Black, Flonz, Crafty Ribbons and Stix2.  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.

Beautiful rich colours on both Tracy, the inked butterflies on the first really pop along with the perfectly shaded poppy and the decoupaged bunnies likewise.

Hope you have a lovely Sunday.

I can tell you liked this month's poppy theme, Tracy! Absolutely gorgeous card, beautifully coloured (love the butterflies of course!) and great design. Your PB card is equally lovely. I like how you've decoupaged the image, and the papers are so pretty.
