PBSC June - Birthdays & Blog Hop...More Inspiration!

It's the third Saturday of the month, so that means it's time for some more inspiration for this month's Penny Black Saturday Challenge...we're celebrating our 8th birthday, so as well as our usual challenge, we're having a fun blog hop too!

The theme of this month's challenge is...of course:


As usual, we are sponsored by the awesome 1-2-3 Stitch:
Prize - a $20 voucher!

In addition, there are some fabby little prizes on offer on some of the stops on the 'hop'...I have a cute kitty cling stamp as a blog prize for one lucky commenter on my blog:

To be in with a chance of winning, please leave a link to your entry for this month's PBSC 'Birthdays' challenge with the linky at the bottom of my blog hop post along with a comment to let me know that you 'hopped by'!

I picked one of my oldest (and most used) Penny Black stamps for today's card...'Birthday Dog!'. I coloured him using watercolour pencils, then fussy cut him out. I added a few strips of washi tape (by Dovecraft) to my card blank, then added Birthday Dog over the top popped up on 3D foam pads, and a sentiment (from the 'Critter Party' set also by Penny Black).

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:

For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, and a complete list of the blog hop links, please pop over to the Penny Black Saturday Challenge.
