Penny Black Saturday Challenge #47 - Shapes

Sunday, 3 May 2009
I hope everyone is enjoying their bank holiday weekend. I was until we lost to Birmingham FC in the football! We had a very slim chance of getting automatic promotion back to the Premiership if we won, but, unfortunately, we lost 2-1 and now have to fight it out in the play-offs. I've been to two play-off finals with Reading and each time we've lost, so I'm really hoping that it might be 3rd time lucky!

It's Jon's birthday tomorrow, so I think it is safe to show his card now. I decided against going for romantic card this year and went with a little bit of humour! I adore these PB cats and sentiments. This sentiment is actually one stamp, but I thought I'd break it up, so it wasn't so bulky.

Stamps -Like it or not (image), Another Birthday (sentiment) - Penny Black; Inks - Copics, Memento; CS - Core'dinations, Bristol Board; Tools - Distress Strips CB folder, Labels 1 nesties
I'm hoping this is eligible for this weeks Penny Black Saturday Challenge which is to use 3 different shapes on your entry. I've got the labels die, the rectangular sentiments and circular brads.
Fingers crossed Jon likes it! I'll let you know tomorrow. Thank you for stopping by and any comments you may leave, they are greatly appreciated.

    Sorry you lost Sarah, thought you were getting back into the game just after half time, but not to be. Perhaps the playoffs will be your ticket to get you back up there.

    I'm still hoping we can topple United off the top spot (yes I'm a red despite being miles away from Liverpool, only thee points behind at moment, but to do that they've got to lose and loooking at who they have left not too sure.

    Anyway, enjoy the rest of your weekend.
