Ruins & Gardens

Welcome to my blog, we are mid way through the month so I have a reminder 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 'Anything Goes'
I took my inspiration for this creation from my Creative Stamping magazine and free stamp set.  Our lovely Teamie Sally has a fabulous collection of her own cards in the magazine, I aimed for a masculine card hence no embellishments.  I quite enjoyed the simplicity of this, and there's many more stamps to use in the set.

We have sponsorship this Month from

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 'In The Garden'

I wanted to use a stamp I haven't really used much, this little cutie is a bit small to take centre focus, so found a different way to use it.  I love the wood effect paper with this, kind of makes it a bit more of a garden theme.

We have prizes from Penny Black, Swedish House Crafts, Crafty Ribbons . 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.
