A Little Bird Told Me Or Was It A Mouse !!
























Happy New Year to all, 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 'Cold & Frosty Colours', well it is January and the weather sure does depict some very cold a frosty mornings.  I went with one of my favourite House Mouse stamps, framing it with Nestie dies, I made my corners using a die which was a magazine freebie,  and then punching daises and added them to the die.

Our prize this month is:-


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 'Something New', my something new is this Penny Black stamp which was given to me and this is the first time I have used it so therefore new to me. I have never used Liquid Pearls before and purchased some over Christmas so I have used them on this card as another 'Something New' item.  I haven't chosen an occasion for this card as the sentiment reads 'A Little Bird Told Me' so it could be for Happy Birthday, Get Well etc........  I chose to do it in a vintage style as I thought it suited the image.

We have prizes from PB, Swedish House Crafts - £15 voucher, Tonic die.  Now isn't that a lot of prizes, definitely worth getting your 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.

Now there the question Tracy !

The HM image is so sweet and what a pretty sentiment banner and linking the vintage feel of your PB&M piece. Sure you will like your liquid pearls, I find them so useful.
