Penny Black Saturday...July Challenge

Morning folks...it's Saturday and time to join in the fun over at Penny Black Saturday and it's all change...first the blog's had a bit of a make-over and as from this week we are moving to a MONTHLY challenge on the first Saturday of each month...relieving the pressure a bit on the Design Team girls and giving you lovely folks more time to get creative too.
So to kick things off...we're having a special ...
Penny Black Saturday Blog Hop...
with fabulous prizes up for grabs....all you have to do is jump aboard the special Penny Black Saturday Critters Bus and you'll be whisked to each destination with our cute Kitty at the wheel and no worries I did check he had a driving licence...
and if you've already been hopping on and off the bus...you should have arrived here from my lovely buddy...
(our guest designer from Craftwork Cards) 
and weren't Julie's cards gorgeous but if you missed the bus...got lost along the way or haven't started yet...just pop back to Penny Black Saturday where you will find all the info you need for the journey...
The challenge for July is...
SUMMERTIME
(and the living is easy)
I won't go into a saga about the weather folks...the sentiment speaks for itself...

I have a little parcel of goodies to give-away....all you have to do is leave your name with Inlinkz to get your name in the hat...I'll announce my winner on Saturday 4th August...the date of the next challenge.

X-Cut...Tri-Boss Multi Layered Embossing Folder...
a pack of pastel buttons...
 seam binding and these gorgeous butterfly charms

Thanks for popping in to visit but now it's time for you to hop back on board the bus and go visit my lovely buddy...
MARY 
(one of our guest designers from The Ribbon Girl)
where more gorgeous inspiration awaits you

I did make a start on linking up the products for this card but the papers...ribbon and chipboard word came from the WeR Memory Keepers White Out Collection which I've had since the days of the wooden boilers and as far as I can tell is discontinued and from the amount I still have left...I think I must have purchased a job lot. The stamps are from this delicious set....Petal Party...from who else but Penny Black of course...a new favourite I suspect and the brads are from American Crafts...another "it would have been silly not to" bargain job lot purchase from my local Hobbycraft.
Well it's over to you now....enjoy hopping on and off the bus and I'll be popping by to visit you during the month to see your Summertime cards.  Have a great weekend...going by the weather forecast it may be time to batten down the hatches...take care...stay safe and bring on the tennis.
Hugs Kath xxx
