It's post two for today! Well I've not been able to take part in the Penny Black challenges recently mainly as there are so many challenges out in blogland i wander off to try them out...but PB is one of the faves and I've not forgotten about them. This week is Anything but a card, so i made myself a little gift bag I saw being demonstrated on Create& Craft TV channel, I think by Hayley West and what a fab and easy bag to make, not much cutting out at all and made from a single sheet of paper. I've had these large scrapbooking papers from QVC and this may be a solution as to how to use them up. PB Hugs stamped but without the shower of flowers (I simply masked them off with a bit of tape), used my new Fernkin punch, some paper roses sent from Katarina, handles from some stiff ribbon/braid from a pound store, finished with Glamour Dust on flowers. Other challenges entered are Allsorts #61 Summer Days, The Secret crafter Summer Holidays and Polka Doodles Stamp Away. Hope you like my little make, will be back in a couple of days, bye!
