Penny Black Saturday Challenge and Mojo Monday



My hubby was late home tonight so I've had a nice evening in the craft hovel and this is the result!

The Penny Black Saturday Challenge is 'The Young Ones' ie a card for a child. This hedgie sitting on a parcel is an acrylic stamp from the 'Party Time' set. I love Margaret Sherry's animals, they are so perfect for children's cards!

The sketch is from Mojo Monday isn't it nice?

I used papers from a Daisy and Dandelion pad called 'Some bunny loves you' and also embossed some of the blue matting card with a papermania folder (which I've left upstairs and I'm too lazy to go and find it but I'll add the name later. Actually, there's no name, but it's a Triboss chequerboard with hearts.) I smeared a bit of stickles on the embossed hearts though mostly they're covered by the image!

Ribbon and round stickers are from stash. The number is a T!m Holtz grungeboard jobbie, coloured with Broken China Distress Ink and then Glossy Accented thickly to give some shine. I also Glossy Accented the yellow parcel ribbon.

I used Speccies - and I'm getting a bit annoyed with the caps on the new pens. Sveral times the whole nib comes off when I remove the cap, and it's a right old b****r trying to separate them again. Does this happen to anyone else?

Anyway, hubby is home and looking for the bottle opener so he can have a beer before bed, so I'd better go find it for him!

Thanks for looking and sleep well!

love Mags B x

Edited to add Speccies: TN1, FS9, CR2; TN3, 6, 8, EB5; TB1, 3; CT2, 4

mean't to say that yes I've had that happen with my spectrums too, I've learned to twist to open them, that seems to have stoped anything flying out! lol!
