Birthday Bowl Buddies

Finally some time to craft! As of today I am officially on holiday for two weeks - YIPEE!!! So that means I should have lots of time to craft! Well not exactly...I'll be spending a week back in the UK with my family so won't get any crafting done there, but until I go and when I get back back I need to seriously get using some of my stuff! I've bought loads of new stamps recently, and got some for Xmas and Valentine's Day, I haven't had a chance to use them all yet. So hopefully I'll have lots of new cards to share with you soon!

I have had time to use this little stamp though, it's from Penny Black and is called "and all my friends", cute eh? The card is for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge, which is a fab sketch from Nat! I'm last minute as usual, cos' there'll be a new challenge tomorrow! Well better late than never I say!

I used:

* "and all my friends" stamp, Penny Black
* sentiment from Stampin' Up (courtesy of Katy - thanks)
* Whispers Brush Markers to colour image
* Papermania "For Him" DP
* Birthday brads from Poppicrafts
* Cuttlebug "Swiss Dots" embossing folder
* ribbon etc from stash

I was getting a bit fed up with the pink background on my blog last night so have changed it to yellow, not sure if I like it, looks plain to me. Maybe plain is good? Anyway, hope the half-term break hasn't been too stressfull for those of you in the UK with little ones! Take care, have a relaxing weekend!
