Penny Black Saturday #121 & Sweet Stop Sketch #76!

Hi again! Sorry I've been AWOL the last month or so, I won't bore you with all the details but we've been to Italy for a holiday, put our house on the market and now sold it! And as it's off the market now, my craft stash can resume it's rightful place, all over the spare room floor! Hopefully my mojo won't be too far behind it! Thank you to my DT 'bosses' for not chucking me off the teams!
But I'm back with a couple of cards. Firstly this weeks Sweet Stop Sketches challenge, another fab sketch I'm sure you will agree! I recently won a voucher for Joanna Sheen's shop so I bought a set of unmounted House Mouse stamps (or 2!) and this little cutie is from one of them.

Stamp - 'Birthdays - Ice Cream' by House Mouse
Colouring - Copics
Papers - Paper Mania
Card Candy from Craftwork Cards
Twill & brads - stash
Border - Fiskars 'Threading Water' punch
Flower - EK Success 'Daisy' punches
Other - Nestabilities Circles

Now onto my card for this weeks Penny Black Saturday challenge. This week is Don't be Square. we'd like to see your cards in all kinds of shapes. I've gone for a wine bottle shape - the alchy that I am! Just kidding! I got it from the Create4Fun challenge blog a while back. I thought it went quite well with this stamp, although I'm not that chuffed with how it came out - when I asked Jamie what he thought, he said 'It's a bit of a mixed bag'!!! Make of that what you will! Have a great weekend!

Stamp - 'To your Wishes' by Penny Black
Colouring - Copics
Papers - Forever Friends & stash
Border - Fiskars 'Sunburst' punch
Sentiment - Paula Pascual
