Puppy Love

Hello everyone - freezing cold working week over at last, so it's time to snuggle down in your wooly jim jams and fluffy slippers, and get stuck in to this weekend's Penny Black Saturday Challenge.  Thanks to everyone who joined in last week's  CASE it challenge - it's always fascinating to see the fantastic takes on someone else's card :-)

Before we get onto this week's challenge we have some great news .. the lovely Ali is rejoining the DT - woo hoo  and welcome back hun!! So you're all in for a treat :-)

There could only really be one theme this week, couldn't there ?? and it's

Love & Kisses


We are sponsored this week by 1-2-3 Stitch

who are offering a $20 voucher for their online store ... so love and kisses to them too :-). Don't forget to be eligible for this week's prize, you should submit a new piece of work which features a PB image stamp, large sentiment or stickeroo as its main focus.

Now I had already made my husband's Valentine's card, not to mention an anniversary card for my mum & dad, so I was running a bit short of romantic themed occasions ... so I just had to make my husband a cheeky little extra card - and here it is!

In comparison with his main  8" * 8" card (posted on Wednesday here) this one is absolutely TEENY as it is C6 - I've really gone from one extreme to the other lol!! I think I may hide this one for him in his paperwork or something.  I think this is also one of my simplest and quickest cards ever - to be honest I haven't had a lot of time this week!

Stamp: Penny Black puppy from transparent set "Critter Party";
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers;
Paper: Pink Petticoat "French Script - Crimson" from "Old Fashioned Girl" set;
Supplies:  Pink Petticoat digi sentiment printed straight onto card as above; lack rub on letters by Doodlebug; Papermania heart gems (coloured with Promarker to make them dark red);
Tools: classic heart nestability.
