Friends Forever



I LOVE Penny Black critter stamps and was lucky to have won some earlier this year from Kathy.   I saw this weeks challenge over at Penny Black blog was Penny Critters I thought of one of the sets I won called "Paint The Town".  It has some adorable critters.   So here's what I came up with.....

Friends Forever

 I stamped onto white card and coloured in the hedgie and bee with Copic pens.  I then used a Nellie Snellen die to cut it out and then sponged the grass and sky while the image was still in the die.  Found some pretty paper from  A Pink Petticoat pack that was a freebie with Quick Cards magazine and a lovely pearlised card from Rosie's Studio.  Added the green ribbon and bow.  Popped the panel and all done.  I was really happy with the result.

Also entering this into the following challenges
Stamp with Fun ~ Anything goes
Penny Black Saturday Challenge ~ Friendship
Simon Says Stamp Challenge ~ Dies to Die for.

Today has been very spring like ~ super warm and sunny.  I managed a nice walk along the beach this morning and sat out in the sun for lunch.  Tonight there is an important rugby match on here in Auckland ~ The All Blacks (NZ) versus Les Bleus ( France) - our arch nemesis!!!!  My hubby is off to watch it live with his 2 brothers and his BIL.  Wishing our team all the best ~ GO THE ALL BLACKS~  I'll be watching it on the TV in about 2 hours time!

Thanks for visiting.

Beautiful card. Love the die shape you used. Very clever idea to leave the die there and colour inside it. Your colouring is great too.
