Penny Black Saturday Challenge - September

Scroll down for my Lili Of The Valley Guest Design Spot...

Morning folks...it's the first of September...can you believe and even more unbelievable it's so darned chilly here this morning I've had to put the heating on...surely it's too early in the year for those "sitting on the radiator wrapped up in my cosy jammies and dressing gown" early morning blog post sessions but the first Saturday of the month means it's time to head over to Penny Black Saturday for a brand new challenge...thanks to all the crafty folks who joined in the "Double The Trouble" fun last month...the winners have been announced and who knows a little parcel of crafty goodies could be popping through your letterbox.
This month's challenge is...
BUTTONS AND BOWS
and all this chilly weather reminds me that Christmas isn't that far away now 
so I'm making a start on filling up the christmas card box...
oops...look away now...naked buttons


As always there are fabulous prizes up for grabs from our very generous sponsors and gorgeous inspiration from the girls on the Design Team so if the weather's mis-behaving where you are too...a great excuse to get out your stamps and inks and have a little play.
I'll see you all tomorrow
Hugs Kath xxx

It's gone very chilly here to, and as I 'm a southern softy now we needed the throw on the bed last night, and I've just turned the heating up too. Have a lovely weekend.

So it's not just me that thinks it's gone cold! Your card sums up the temperature and the buttons look better naked!

Oh I chuckled at the naked buttons - how did they sneak under your nose? Love that little robin.
We had the heating on a good part of last week - very chilly; not too bad this morning.

Gorgeous card Kath - wish I could get the inspiration to start on Christmas cards. My g-daughter has just started school so as I looked after her for three mornings before, will have a wee bit more time to spend on making cards. Mind you will miss her.
