Penny Black Saturday Challenge...Week 110

Morning folks....one minute it's Monday and before you know it's the weekend again and that means it's time for another challenge over at Penny Black Saturday.    I just knew you would all love Beth's fabulous sketch and once again you totally rocked it.... a big thank you to everyone who joined in the fun.
The challenge this week is something a little bit different.....
ANYTHING BUT A CARD
I decided to make another little sewing box.....similar to the one that I made for my workshop at Simply Create but as I left that one with the lovely Jacqui as a sample.....I needed another to keep all my sewing threads tidy and I love this heart shaped box





Papers: Delish Designs..Bistro Collection
Image: Penny Black.....Stitch In Time
Box & Cotton Reels......Hobbycraft
Buttons and Pearl Pins from stash
Twill Ribbon....Stampin Up
Tape Measure Stamp

I have hundreds of hanks of threads left over from my cross stitch days and thank goodness I didn't throw them out.....with stitching being a big trend in cardmaking they are coming in so useful and I now have the perfect place to store them.
Once again my lovely teamies have come up with gorgeous creations to share with you all....so pop over to Penny Black Saturday and check them out.
And we have another fabulous prize for one lucky winner this week
 from the lovely Alison and Jayne at Butterfly Kisses

this adorable stamp....Penny Black....Bountiful

Now it's your turn to show us all your fabulous creations for this week's challenge....I will be popping over to pay you all a visit for my weekly treat.....in the meantime happy crafting.
Hugs Kath xxx

The first thing that sprung to mind when I saw your gorgeous box was the book from Childhood Days "The Borrowers". Just adore the the little mice.
