Penny Black Saturday Challenge....Week 64

Morning Folks and yes it's Saturday once again....where does the week go.....another great response to last week's stitching challenge....fabulous creations once again and well done to all those who had never tried stitching before and gave it a go.
And the challenge this week on Penny Black Saturday is

CHRISTMAS

Papers: MME..... Merry Days of Christmas
Image: Penny Black....Hand Mailed
Hero Arts: Snowflake Rosette
Stazon - Cotton White Ink Pad
Tim Holtz Distress Ink Pads
Ribbon and button from stash
Kanban Bling
Snowflake: Cuttlebug Die

I know that lots of you have already started on your Christmas cards for this year and I must admit I am beginning to feel in the festive mood....I so love this gorgeous Penny Black image and I'm sure I will be using it for lots of my personal Christmas cards with ...my favourite colour combo at the moment...blue and red and I'd forgotten how beautiful this snowflake is stamped onto acetate with Staz On White.....but you need to hot foot it over to Penny Black Saturday right now to see the fabulous Christmas cards from our super talented design team.....they never fail to amaze me every week with their gorgeous work but this week they completely blew my socks off ....and believe me there was lots of ooohing and aaaahing when I was uploading their cards for this week's post....so thank you girls for all the hard work you put in each and every week to come up with such amazing cards....with a little help of course from the gorgeous Penny Black images....I may be a little biased...but nobody does Christmas like Penny Black........
and Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without a snowman.....
this week's prize for one lucky winner
from Dick at PB Stamps
"Happy and Cool"
and isn't he just the cutest little dude
Can't wait to see all your fabulous creations this week...and because I am feeling all Christmassy....and spent yesterday tidying out my mega Christmas stamp collection.....it's time for a little sharing...pop over tomorrow for the chance to win some little Christmas parcels.... will be back later with some fabby news for you all from Funky Hand.....in the meantime...Happy Christmas Crafting and enjoy your Bank Holiday Weekend.
Hugs Kath xxxxxx
Oops.....how naughty of me.....I knew there was something else I had to do today....but couldn't for the life of me remember what it was....oh this is becoming a bit of a worry...the old memory is beginning to head south just like the body.....I forgot to thank my lovely teamie Pauline for this fab award...in fact she awarded it to the whole Penny Black team who are just the nicest bunch of girls and perhaps one day we will get the chance to meet up.....so a big thank you Pauline for thinking of me.....
