Apple Season

COPYRIGHT LINDA @ SNAIL'S SPACE and described here solely for people with disabilities; an autumn card with orange, red and green background papers, some banners at the top with a sentiment, "mmmmm! apples" and a watercoloured image of two hedgies with apples, one hedgie in a basket
it’s the first sunday of the month and time for a new theme at the penny black and more challenge and this month it’s anything goes! for my DT card, i chose this cute penny black ‘hedgy gift’ image because it’s fall, it’s apple season and we just made some apple crisp – yum! i coloured with distress ink pads, cut out the apples, heated with versamark and clear ep and popped them on foam tape. there are some fabulous prizes to be won and you can use any company’s image for your focal point, just no digis. you’ll be impressed when you check out what the rest of the design team did at the blog; i hope you’ll play along.

i’d also like to submit this card to these challenges:
one crazy stamper – autumn
simply create too – fall/autumn
papercraft star – inspiration photo – fall

thanks for popping by.

Happy Birthday

birthday card with yellow background, pennants at the top and featuring a circle of hedgehogs dancing around a birthday cake
welcome to some new followers; i appreciate your interest in my blog.

i’m still slowly easing back into creating so it was fun to colour this cute penny black hedgie image; as usual, i used distress inks. i used my new memory box pennant die to cut two and join together and used papers from the bo bunny surprise! collection – i love the bright colours and patterns in this 6×6 pad.

i’m submitting this card to the following challenges:
allsorts challenge – celebrating their 4th birthday
one stop craft challenge – furry friends
613 avenue create – anything goes
red carpet studio – 16 candles
songbird challenges – all creatures great and small

thanks for popping by.

Reindeer Pup

christmas card with penny black rudolph pup
this is my entry for my friend sandra’s rudolph day challenge to create christmas cards on the 25th of every month and i’m playing along with the my favorite things sketch challenge for the first time. i coloured with a paintbrush and distress ink pads and used MFT die-namics snowflakes. i’m also submitting this to the new word play saturday. thanks for popping by.

edited: in response to brenda’s question, this is penny black’s reindeer pup stamp

Reindeer Christmas Tag

christmas tag with reindeer and snowflakes in the background in blues, green and rust colours
the november bo bunny challenge is to create a tag; i sure have made a lot of tags lately but they’re so much fun. for this challenge, i spent hours stamping, embossing, distressing and then tossing everything. i went on a hunt for papers to start over with and i found this reindeer in the bo bunny blitzen paper pad. i added a red pearl and stickles to the greenery so in the end it was a ten minute project and my third entry to sandra’s rudolph day challenge. thanks for popping by.

Mid Month Reminder Penny Black And More

card with two bunnies in clay pots and a bird on the handle of a shovel with a thank you sentiment
my daughter asked me to make a thank you card for her vet who provided excellent care for one of her bunnies, pictured below; the little spotted bunny is recuperating from a tooth abscess. this is my mid month post for our animal magic theme at penny black and more; i inked up this penny black peek-a-bunny stamp, coloured with distress ink pads and popped the image panel on foam squares. there are some wonderful prizes and a chance to be a guest designer and remember – you can use any company stamp, just no digis. i’m also submitting this card to the cupcake craft – two’s company challenge.  thanks for popping by.
