Penny Black, Sketch Saturday, Secret Crafter

Another post but with 3 challenges this time, all seperate but here together. It wasnt until I had finished I realised I had used pb stamps on all of them! lol. Following on from my late post yesterday does anyone know what a jajo is? and does anyone have any ideas on what to make for teachers gifts? thanks.Up with the lark this morning for the race qualifiers! yay we sit on pole but I cant help but feel nervous, will we have a new world champ tomoz??? I do hope Mclaren and Lewis do well, everything crossed!. I was going to have a housework day today but my lovely hubby did it for me, HMMMMM whats he after??? a saturday night down the pub maybe? lol.

So here are my challenges:-

PENNY BLACK CHALLENGE

This week the challenge was to make an atc. Well I have been off atcs for a good while now not sure why, but I managed to make this one, I quite like it. I coloured the hedgie with whispers pens and added some glamour dust to her tutu. The words where from a k&co kit I cut up and rubbed some stazon over them, I added a bit of ribbon and some paper from the dcwv stack, the main backing I ran through the swiss dots folder. http://pennybfriendssaturdaychallenge.blogspot.com/

SKETCH SATURDAY

The sketch this week I had to think about, I love this stamp! there is something about that horse, I coloured this image with h2o's, I added a few primas with some pearl centres and embossed the greeting with black powder. I also used the swiss dots folder and a bit of ribbon. http://sketchsaturday.blogspot.com/

SECRET CRAFTER

The challenge this week is:- "blue, white and a bit of snowflake". I used navy cardstock for the main backing, I used the tiny bubbles folder behind the snowy image, I coloured that with a whisper pen and added some glamour dust to him. The snowflakes I punched, and I sandwiched them between the 2 flowers, I added a little stickles and some ribbon, I left a greeting of as I didnt want to overcrowd the card. http://thesecretcraftersaturdaychallenge.blogspot.com/

Enjoy the rest of your saturday I am off to blog hop now!.

Mariska said...

Very cool cards Joey. Love the black on black and the images you've used are very cool too. As for teacher gifts...I last year before the summer holidays I gave my daughters teachers a packages and decorated it with the words 'pamper package' on it and filled it with a magazine, a chocolate bar and a facial mask and a chamomile tea in a self created little bag with the words... now it's time to relax. And a couple of weeks ago I gave them a decorated notepad with a pen in a small decorated bag. I got that idea from Inge's blog (http://patternedpaper.typepad.com/patterned_paper/2008/06/hhrs-teachers-g.html). Hope this helps you!

Thank you for joining us at Sketch Saturday this week!
