Penny Black Baby Hedgie



It's Penny Black Saturday Challenge Week 112 and the theme is a recipe:

ONE circle

TWO papers

THREE flowers.

This is my first 'recipe' challenge and it wasn't nearly as difficult as I feared!

I had a lot of fun with White Flowersoft, stickles, Glossy Accents and Glamour Dust. The gingham paper is from stash (I think it's 'Craft Creations') and the lovely flowered paper is Kanban, from my local shop.

Flowers are Prima, leaves from a Woodware punch. Punch and brads are from my local shop, which is CLOSING in THREE WEEKS! What am I going to do if I can't drop in and chat to Julie and Nina?

If you go to Stamperama in Stevenage, or the Ally Pally, or several other shows whose names I don't know, look for a couple of lovely ladies who specialise in glitter on acetate. Julie is tall and dark-haired and often wears a flower in her hair; Nina is shorter and older and has a lovely German accent. They are sweet and funny and very talented.

Ok, I'm going to watch 'The Normans' in iPlayer and then b****r off to bed. Thanks for looking, peeps!

luv, Mags x
