April Penny Black & More Challenge

Hello my lovely crafty friends. The first sunday of April is here so time for the new challenge over at Penny Black & More @ Allsorts and this month the challenge is
All Things Spring
The Design Team have been hard at work with their Penny Blacks and have some gorgeous inspiration to share with you over on the challenge blog here along with all the details.  You can used any brand of stamp except digi (NO DIGI IMAGES), the focal point of your project must be stamped to be in with a chance of winning one of our fabulous prizes. One lucky winner using a Penny Black stamp will be chosen to be a Guest Designer on a future challenge.

I have made these sweet little cards to put some money in to send down to my 3 grandsons for Easter. Great fun cards, quick and easy to make from this lovely little Penny Black transparency set. Even managed a bit of spring in the background photo.  Love this time of year.

So what you waiting for - lots of lovely sponsors means lots of lovely prizes.

Thanks for the get well wishes - l am much better today and plan some outdoor time as well as setting some seeds off on trays. I am missing my greenhouse but keep dropping hints to hubby - so the seed is planted for a new one !  There are lots of trees and shrubs in the garden and l am looking forward to seeing what they are.  Apparently a tree Norman cut to the ground was not dead and was a lovely Victoria Plum Whoops, l have planted more fruit trees and the veg garden is coming on a treat, l have put in strawberries, raspberries, gooseberry and little grandaughter Esther's Favourite a Blueberry - just hope it likes the spot. I know blueberries can be difficult and l have never grown one before but will keep my eye on it, l have put a good mulch of wood chippings around. I bought them from the garden centre as good sized plants with plenty buds

Thank you for stopping by and for your comments x Susan x

Sounds like you are being very productive in the garden Susan and yes, you definitely need that greenhouse. Hope another of your trees is a Vic as they really are the best and nothing really rivals them for flavour, I love freezing them down for the winter.

Lovely Spring cards for your grandsons Easter money, such they will love them.

What a fun trio of cute images that made into such happy cards. Love the focal design, and I like that background paper too. Wasn't certain if you'd overstamped the white flowers, but that's an very pretty design. Also love the wonderful sunshine daffodils behind your cards. Glad to hear you are feeling better, and enjoy your spring garden. TFS
