Sunny Saturday




Its time for PENNY BLACK CHALLENGE  and this week we have a little recipe for you all


as always you can create a card..altered art...scrapbook layout...bag..notebook whatever takes your fancy...the only RULE being that you use at least one Penny Black Image....which includes the large Penny Black Sentiment stamps or Stickeroos

And the prize this week for one lucky winner

is a 15% lifetime discount voucher from

PB Stamps


What a wonderful Morning it is here, the Sun shining through the window woke me up really early, so I have already got one load of washing out on the line to dry, I am hoping I will be able to stay awake all day though as I didn’t crawl into my Pit until 2.30 last night, my new commission is so exciting I am making cards to be shown on USA and Canadian TV, but I only have until Monday evening to complete at least 12 cards.

Wow I didn’t realise how long I had been away from Penny Black DT, you know how much I love PB stamps and it was a joy to make this card.  I have coloured the image with Copics .  The Butterfly Border is a Martha Stewart Punch, I will be using this one a lot, the Pearl Swirls were created with Pearls and Swirl Template I bought from Jill at The Hobby House.


Finally this is my last Card as GDT for Sweet Stamping Challenge  I have really enjoyed my time with you lovely Girls and a big thanks to dear Terry for asking me to be her GDT


I have used another of the fabulous Wags-n-Whiskers images for this card and have used copics to colour, the papers are by Magnolia and the lush ribbons are from Crafty Feelings .  I have used loads of Glitter on her dress and Tiara.  The flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts as usual.

The sentiment is by Stamping Up.


I suppose I had better get back to creating, although (and I don’t very often say this), I would much rather be in the garden catching the rays!!!!  it just seems such a long time since we have had warm enough weather to sit outside comfortably.

Hope you all have a wonderful weekend I am so looking forward to my Sunday Picnic.


Thanks for looking and for your fabulous comments they do mean so much
