Take It Easy!






















Good Morning bloggers, as this goes live I will be getting ready to take my son to his football match, that will be 2-3 hours stood in the freezing cold as he is playing in two matches today.
So 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 'One For The Guys' So get out your masculine stamps, as we all need those masculine cards but we don't all enjoy making them.  I think it's the lack of embellishments we use on male cards.


We have sponsorship this Month from
Foil Play


Foil Play


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.























And now onto my second challenge creation for Penny black & More @ Allsorts, where the theme is 'Blossom & Bows' So you can use any image for this just incorporate a bow and some flowers on your card for this challenge.

We have prizes from Penny Black, All Occasion Dies, Crafty Ribbons, and Sissix.  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.

Are you wanting some inspiration, pop on over to the challenge blog and then you can see all the wonderful creations from the rest of the talented team.

I've been allocated half an hour before system restoration continues, then fingers crossed my computer activities will be back to normal. So quickly popping in say what lovely work Tracy, lovely touches on the first with the little scroll and adore the colours on the second.

Oooo i so love boys cards and this is one of my favourite ones.

I so love purple, and the image is so adorable - oooo what a great idea to thread the ribbon between the lace too.

Both cards are just adorable Tracy! Hope the match went well and you weren't too cold. Wouldn't fancy it over here, it would skin you alive out there!

Men cards are my nemesis.....but yours is awesome! I agree with you on the embellishment thing...men & flowers just don't go together lol. That little fairy & flowers definitely go together though...adorable!
Hugs, Renee

Gorgeous colour schemes and great designs on both cards, Tracy. I think you're right about embellishments for men. I love yours, though.
