Birthday crossword

For Sweet stop sketches 155 we were asked to choose any sketch from the past, so I chose 110:


I used one of my favourite Penny Black stamps, 'hedge-words' - so versatile and just right for quick cards - and, as I didn't use any patterned paper, this is for Penny Black and friends 198: no patterned paper, also for Craft us crazy 26: inspire us - favourite stamp company.

This was an opportunity to use up offcuts of sticky ribbons as well as offcuts of black and white card, so another entry for Pixie's crafty snippets 17.


This is also for:

Creative Belli 142: animals - the old and forgotten embellishments are the offcuts of ribbons and the crocheted flower with covered brad
CRAFT 152: animals
Cute card Thursday 24: animal magic
Di's digi designs: let's meet your animal friends
Really reasonable ribbon 46: black, white and one accent colour plus ribbon
Gingerloft 38: black and white and a touch of red
Tuesday alchemy 11: black & white
Crazy 4 challenges 133: make your card pop by adding black
Penny Black and more at Allsorts April: oh so cute
Let's craft and create 43: sentiments - main focal point
Celebrate the occasion 60: happy birthday + ribbon
Creative card crew 9: ribbon
Ribbon carousel 50: anything goes
PaperPlay 17: monochrome and ribbon
Sweet stampin: use more than 1 ribbon
Bunny Zoe 23: ribbon or twine
Craft-room: ink it
Crafty Ann 64: stitching
Mark's finest papers speedy fox and friends 104: stitching
Allways something creative 28: enchanting with seam (sstitching)
Paper playtime 72: say it with sentiments birthday
Penny's 78: happy birthday
Paper pretties 203: clean & simple
Phindy's Friday 103: clean & simple
Timbro scrap mania 46: anything goes
Crafty catz 130: anything goes
Victorine 32: anything goes
Aud sentiments: anything goes
Inky impressions: anything goes
Simon says: anything goes
The poodles parlour: anything goes
Make it Monday 86
Inspire me Fridays 56
