One Stop Craft Challenge

Hi everyone, not at work today as I've been to the dentist to have my crown put back - a long story but I've got a very sore mouth at the moment - taking my mind off it by doing a bit of crafting.  Here's the card I've made for this weeks 'One Stop Craft Challenge'.  The image is a Penny Black stamp - I love these I think they are brilliant - my sense of humour!  Stamped with Stazon, I coloured it with Marvy le Plume pens and chalked around the edges.  The papers are My Mind's Eye (free with a crafting mag).  The scallop edge is punched with an EK Success border punch.  The flowers were stamped and punched with a MS punch  onto the dotty paper using black Stazon and I added a jewel to the centres.  I used grosgrain ribbon to decorated the scallop edge and stamped the happy birthday sentiment.  Hope you like it!


  1. Hi Linda

    Hope the mouth soon improves, had more than my fair share in that area the last few months so can fully understand.

    I don't know that I have seen that PB image before, but what fun it is and looks great with those MME DP's.

    Was at Stampalot yesterday - they have all the new Cosmo Cricket and Kaiser DPs' in - was I strong, not of course not.
