And yet more Valentines, and another lovely Penny Black stamp!!

Hot pants!

Another valentine (they aren't all for me to send, I plan to sell them at work!!).This time I layered the boxer shorts and the balloon.

More cat and dog valentines!

I got this stamp second-hand from e-bay, and I love it!!

Love and Hearts

The challenge at "Penny Black and More" for January is Love and Hearts ( ) so what a good excuse to use this lovely Penny Black stamp?

Penny Black Challenge...

The Penny Black Challenge this week is for cards made using crafty bargains - here; Well....I bought this stamp just before Christmas at half-price (and I loved it so much I bought one for my mum as well!). I have layered her skirt for dimension, and plan to give her to my friend Christine for her birthday next week.

Thank You

I made this card for a chap called Wayne who I regularly meet when walking my dog. On a couple of occasions recently he has come to my (our!) rescue when other dogs have "set-about" my dog. I thought I would make this to show him that we do appreciate his help.The stamp is called "Lady and the Tramps" and is by Funstamps.

Happy Bearthday Dad!

This card is made with the wonderful bear stamps made by the equally wonderful Jenny Mayes, and inspired by a card on her blog.

This is for another colleague who is leaving (does this say something about our workplace?...hhhmmm!). This is a Great Impressions stamp, and it layers beautifully!!

Goodbye and Good Luck...

This is for a colleague who is leaving to take up a new post in Cornwall. I have never known anyone with so many mobile phones, so hence this card! The phones here are cut from "Paisley".

Anything goes....

I really am determined to be more organised with Christmas cards this year and make them throughout the year. To that end I am going to try to do the ABC Christmas challenge as often as I can. The theme for "A" this week is "Anything goes" here . By coincidence the theme at the Penny Black Saturday Challenge here is also "Anything goes", so I am entering this card for both challenges. The stamp is a lovely Penny Black called "Merry Wishes".

Little Claire calendar

I found the instructions for this calendar on the Little Claire blog here The stamp I have used is by "Funstamps". I know it is a little late, but as soon as I can get calendar tabs for 2013, I might start early for next year!

Flowerpot bunnies..

I just love this Penny Black stamp!!

From all of us....

This is for a colleague who is leaving for a new job in a few weeks. It is from several of us, so the image (lovely Penny Black of course!) seemed appropriate.

I was asked to make an 18th birthday card with camper vans on it. Luckily I had this lovely "Inkadinkado" stamp!

Vintage car...

A friend of mine asked me to make a card for her brother's 70th birthday. Apparently he is interested in vintage cars, so this one from the "Wrap it Up" cartridge seemed appropriate.

Thank you....

A friend of mine made me the most beautiful Christmas cake as a gift, so I made this card to thank her. I don't have a stamp of a Christmas cake, so had to make do with this birthday one!!
