Strawberry Jam !

Hello and good morning to you all my wonderful crafty friends.
I hope all is well with you, sending hugs to those who need them.

Goodness, it's Saturday already!  My son is playing his usual cricket matches today and tomorrow and then on Sunday evening my eldest daughter is going to a Summer School at Sussex University. She will be staying for 3 nights which will hopefully give her a taste of Uni life and help her make some decisions about the future. 

My card today is one I made simply because I love the image!
These Penny Black hedgehogs always make me smile.



Items Used:
Stamp - Penny Black  -  Strawberry Jam coloured with Promakers
Paper - Doodlebug Designs
Sentiment - Pink Petticoat Happy Birthday Sentiments
Crafters Companion Embossing folder Petite Dots
Ribbons from stash



I would like to enter my card into the following fabulous challenges:

Penny Black Challenge - Bright and Sunny
Penny Black and More - In the Garden 
As you like it - favourite ribbon or twine. I  love spotty and gingham ribbon, they seem to add that little bit of extra interest to a design without distracting from the image.
I ♥ Promarkers - Summertime
Crafty Ribbons - Use 3 of something - 3 ribbons
Sweet Stampin'  - Bold and Beautiful

Thank you so much for taking the time to look at my blog again today. I really do appreciate it and love to read any comments you may wish to make.
I hope you all have a fabulous weekend.
Bye for now
hugs

I hope daughter enjoys her time at Sussex University and as you are over this way are you also visiting The Glitter Pot ??? - if i had time i would have said (sorry packing, but definitely next time ), i'll meet you for a coffee, as i'm only 20 mins away on the bypass :-)

Thanks also for joining us at PB & More and good luck, Luv Sam x

Hi Sue, another beautiful card! I love the way you always make such a terrific job of matching the colours to your backing papers, ribbon & card. Goodness, they grow up so quickly! I hope your daughter has a great time at Sussex, I had a friend who went there and loved every minute of it (was quite a long time ago now though!). Hope you're enjoying a fab time with all your children at home over the summer. Oh, and thank you so much for the lovely comments on my blog. Love maddy x
