Seize The Birthday - Anything Goes


We've got a new challenge for you over at Seize The Birthday and this time it's Anything Goes, as long as it's a birthday-themed project.


I went with an orange unicorn (Jane Davenport) on a smooshed background.  The hearts are also Jane Davenport, and the flowers and sentiment are from The Bee's Knees Fairie Door.

Pop on over to the Seize The Birthday blog to see what the rest of the team and our surprise party guest, Linda, have made for you, and play along with us.

Go Wild On Your Birthday


What?  You've never seen a blue and white zebra before?  Really??  Me neither, but I thought, why not - after all, I'm in a monochromatic mood.  And that means I can play along with CAS Watercolour Challenge, Something Blue,


and while I'm at it, I'm also playing along with The Library Challenge - I'm going with the stripes.





We're having miserable weather for June - even the teapot was trying to keep warm!

STAMPlorations Inspiration #219

Sunglasses at the ready!



It's STAMPlorations' 6th birthday, although due to Shery's recent bereavement, celebrations are on hold.  In the meantime, throughout June there's 30% off all items in the 6th Birthday section of the store.  Use my code STAMPGIRLSHIRLEY and you'll get another 20% off - how good is that??

I've gone all psychedelic/rainbow/retro with this card.  It all started with the Distress Oxide background panel from my stash.  I cut out two sets of Lower Case Alphabet for next week's card, and I didn't want to waste the waste, if you see what I mean.  So I stamped a Groovy Lace Up Shoe and coloured it in rainbow-style with Zigs, made a sentiment banner and mounted it all onto a black card.

I'm playing along at Just Us Girls - Retro


and Inkspirational Fashion challenge - these shoes are certainly challenging :-D

and Fusion - no birds for me, but look at all those colours!

It's Your Day


Just popping in with a card for a couple of challenges, using my new must-have Penny Black stamps. As soon as I got them I stamped out thousands (well ok, a couple of dozen) images, so there's plenty more to come.  I'm also trying to make a dent in Mt Patterned Paper, ha!

I'm playing at:

Timeout Challenges


Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Anything Goes

and, of course, Penny Black Saturday Challenge.
