Penny Black and More - June Challenge

Happy Sunday! First Sunday of them month also means it's time for our new June challenge at Penny Black and More.We have  two very special prizes to give away this month so be sure to check out the challenge blog and read about how you can be entered into the drawing.
Anything goes this month as long as you follow our simple rules, but just for this month our requirements on how to be entered to win are a little bit different ... here is how Brenda explained it: 

Normally we put all the entries into the draw but this month we are going to ask you to let us know which prize you prefer, this is because the Penny Black stamps are all wood mounted and we know that presents storage problems for some people. So we are asking all entrants this month to leave us a comment to tell us if they prefer the stamps or the die cutting machine...........we will only enter the people who have commented into the draw as we would not want to send these lovely stamps to someone who would not use them.
(Be sure to leave that comment on the challenge blog, not here on my blog!) 

See the wonderful prizes below...
A die cutting machine by Tonic and a lot of 7 wood mounted rubber stamps by Penny Black.



I used an older stamp by Penny Black - Warm and Fuzzy. It's been heat embossed on Winsor & Newton Watercolor Marker paper, then colored with Zig clean color brush pens. Yes, I colored them to match my two critters Thomas and Fussy. If my two would just get along like these two cuties....sometimes Fussy comes along to clean Thomas's ears and while she cleans him he just sits there with a confused look. It's fun to watch them together, but it rarely happens...but then who knows what they are up to when we're asleep 😀

Papers are all from my stash, sentiment from a Penny Black clear set and I used a whimsy stamps slider die (probably retired) to cut it out an attached with some jute twine. Machine sewing finishes off the card.

Well and that is all for today, hope you enjoy the rest of your weekend. Plenty of sunshine over here!
