In The Garden

Here is my post for the mid month for Stamping Sensations and Penny black & More @ Allsorts challenges, the themes are very nice ones this month, so 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 'In An English Country Garden' So this gives plenty of scope for creating.  I used a La Blanch stamp, I made my own backing papers using Distress Inks and some vintage stamps.

We have sponsorship this Month from Chocolate Baroque and these stamps are worth entering for:-
English Cottages Rubber stamp sheet - A5Honey Bee Unmmounted Stamp Sheet - A5

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. A Vintage Journey - May - Book It (the girl is holding/reading a book)
2. Alphabet Challenge - Distress Inks/papers
3. Crafty Calendar - May - Distress It

And now onto my second challenge creation for Penny black & More @ Allsorts, where the theme is 'All Things Feminine', so get out the girly stamps because the prizes are worth it.  I used this cute Fairy Sweet image and made my own flowers, and used some new papers I bought.

We have prizes fromPenny Black, Crafts U Love, Stamp and embossing folder set . Now isn't that a lot of prizes, definitely worth getting your girly stamps out isn't it!!!!!!

That's a charming vintage image with the little girl and the book, and so delicately tinted. A lovely card. Thanks so much for joining us on A Vintage Journey.
