Penny Black Saturday #185 - Crafty Bargains....

Morning!! Today at Penny Black Saturday we want to see cards/projects made with your crafty bargains.....did you manage to get some PB stamps in the January sales?? or maybe a crafty bargain on ebay :)

I have used a stamp I bought in the January sales from Sir Stampalot for the bargain price of £2.88, I did'nt realise how big it would be so it was a good surprise when it arrived :) I also bought 3 others ssshhhh!! but they were all under £3 so I could'nt resist :)
I have coloured the cute bunny with my promarkers and prismas as always in lovely spring was snowing when I made this card!!
I used my retro punches for the blooms and embossing folders for texture.
The layout is this week's sketch #76 over at Everybody Art Challenge.

We have a new sponsor this week......Crimson Cloud and the prize is a fabulous Penny Black stamp, check out all the details and the DT cards over at the blog {HERE}

Penny Black Saturday #183 - CASE IT.....Beth

Morning!! My 1st post of 2012 :) and a brand new challenge over at Penny Black Saturday!
We have something new and different today and it will become a regular challenge.......the 1st Saturday of each month :)
'CASE IT'.......
CASE stands for 'Copy and share everything' can choose to case the whole card ~ layout etc or take elements of the card (colours, image, style etc.) to create your own interpretation of the card.

For each CASE IT challenge we will be casing a different member of the DT........every month one DT member will choose their favourite PB card for everyone to CASE.
Here is this month's inspirational card from Beth :)
I have chosen to CASE the colours ~ red, white and blue and I also loved the polka dots, stars and the doodling :)
I have used a PB teddy image called 'Joie De Vivre' and coloured as always with my promarkers and prismas. The papers I won in a candy from the lovely Michelle.
You can check out all the DT CASE cards {HERE}.........all inspired by Beth's card and soooo different!

There are 2 fabulous prizes up for grabs this week from Penny Black and The Ribbon Girl, details are on the blog too :)

I am entering my card into the following challenges ~
