A very late PBSC and a Festive Blog Hop!

**Scroll down this post to find the Crafters Companion blog hop!**

Good morning! I hope you all had a good weekend! Mine was manic and I didn't get anytime at all to post my card for this weeks Penny Black Saturday challenge! The theme this week is Fly the Flags! We'd like to see banners, bunting, flags etc! I went for a bit of a one layer card this week and stamped out my bunting straight above the image, I have to say though, I'm such a messy stamper this is my second attempt! I had some on my little finger and couldn;t work out where all the pink smudges were coming from! Hee hee! :-) I'm pleased with how it eventually came out though!
The prize this week is 2 fab Penny Black stamps! I hope you can join us!

CAS-ual Fridays - Pretty in Pink
Oldie but a Goodie - Banners or Bunting (main PB stamp is over 6 months old)


And now for something a little bit Christmassy!
I'll leave Meg to fill you in on the details! ;-)

"As many of you know, Christmas starts in June for many papercrafters, so Crafter's Companion are starting to feel a little festive, launching the first of a new range, with artwork designed by artist Ian Hallows. The ‘Christmas in Mulberry Wood’ range (including six stamps, co-ordinating CD-ROM and two papercrafting collections by Hunkydory) will be Pick of the Week on Create & Craft from Midday on Friday!

To celebrate the launch, Crafter's Companion have organised a Blog Hop around some of the Design Team's blogs!

If you have landed here from Louise's blog then you are hopping in the right direction.

If not then you need to pop over to the Crafter’s Companion News blog to begin.
Everyone on the Design Team had so much fun creating with this new range from Crafter’s Companion and to celebrate the launch of these stunning new collections on Friday 29th June you have the chance to win the brand new 'Christmas in Mulberry Wood' CD-ROM.
All you need to do to be in with a chance of winning this great prize is visit each blog in order and then go back to the Crafter’s Companion News Views and Inspiration Blog to leave a comment about the range and the sneak peeks you’ve seen. On Friday June 29th, Crafter's Companion will pick two comments at random, to win the prize.

From here, you need to hop to Pam’s blog."

So there you go! Here is my sneaky peek for today, it's using the gorgeous Owls stamp! So cute! The sentiment accompanies it and the papers are from the CD.

I hope you have fun popping about our blogs, the samples are gorgeous and these stamps are seriously so cute, I love them! I hope you can come back during the week and see my other cards! Good luck!
