News to Share!

Well once again, where did the week go! I was full of good intentions after my lack of blogging but it happened again, and I haven't even shared my good news with you - I was chosen to be a GDT for the month of April on my favourite challenge - House Mouse! You will see my first 'creation' tomorrow!!!
Although the blogging was neglected (the garden is now looking very nice though) I did make a couple of cards. This one was made using a set of Hobby Art stamps bought a Harrogate. I must admit though, I did see a card on one of the stands using a Penny Black stamp with a similar effect using the black circle embossed with white.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:
CES - Monochromatic
Craft Your Passion - Anything Goes (just made it)
Anything Goes Challenge - Pearls
One Stop Crafts - Monochromatic
Stamp Scrap & Doodle Saturdaays - Clean & Simple
Stamp Something - Circles
Alphabet Challenge - W White + one
Cratfy Catz - Embossing
ABC Challenge - Ribbon

Well thats it for now, I'm back out in the gardens to catch the last of todays glorious sunshine.

Thanks for looking

Hi Avril, this is one STUNNING card, I love the reverse stamping on the black circle, I can see me with a bin full before I got that right!! The spotty ribbon finishes it perfectly.
