Penny Black Pony and Baa Baa Cheesecake

Hi! Hope you're all enjoying August, here in France the weather is so HOT! Anyway, as I've been hiding in the house due to the hot weather I thought I'd have a go at this weeks Penny Black Saturday Challenge, it's ages since I joined in! This week it's a colour challenge, you have to use blue, tan and cream...


This is my card using Penny Black "Minding Shelty" stamp. I love this image, I have neglected my PB stamps recently so also used a PB sentiment stamp too, which I think goes perfect with the image. I've coloured the image using Pro Markers, I seem to be getting better at blending the colours. Don't you think these three colours go great together, I'll have to use this colour combo more often!

I'm feeling a bit frustrated today as I'm having problems with my internet/email account! And why is it when you ring the so called HELPLINE they never answer! Grrrrrr!!! I wish I could sort the bl**dy thing myself, it's driving me round the bend! Oh well, I'll just have to take a bit of time out and do a card or two!

On a better note, look how my cheesecake finally turned out...


... and it tasted good too! I surprised myself lol!

Finally, another quick card for Stampin for the Weekend Challenge which is "Days Gone By" - you have to distress to impress! So I did a quick little card using a Stampington & Co image that I've had for a while and never used. Not sure about this card, maybe it's a bit sad looking? It's definately plainer than my usual cards. Anyway, here it is...
