This card was made for this week's Penny Black Saturday Challenge which was to use a Brown colour scheme. Image is one of my favourite and has been used many times (my daughter is a musician)
Tried not to make the card too masculine.

..... as opposed to Frankie says Relax!!! - you have to be a certain age to understand this quote!!

Image printed and cut and layered from Newton Bear Card Software - a recent purchase from Ideal World. It has a fantastic set of images and little ditties - or 'The world according to Newton.' Border is Martha Stewart Flower and Vine punch. Ribbon from stash. Text created with Martha Stewart alpha punches (two in a set with first and second half of the alphabet) - a recent purchase from the U.S.A and just the right size for sentiments on cards.

Just managed to get this done in time for this week's challenge which was buttons galore. Papers are new Basic Grey Kioshi and have used newly purchased Martha Stewart hydrangea border punch. Buttons are also from the Kioshi range. Sentiment created using tiled stickers. Image was paper pieced.

Landed back into U.K. yesterday and have been trying to catch up on sleep and washing!!

My punch stash total this time is 21 - Michaels and Jo ann's having had the most visits. Have got lots of other goodies too - will post a pick later in the week.

Back to work tomorrow and boy am I not looking forward to that.
