Penny Black Saturday Challenge 17

Another great response to last week's challenge and fabulous cards from everybody covering all 4 Seasons and I love how you all have your own interpretation of the challenge....great work.
The challenge this week on Penny Black Saturday is to work from a sketch.....can be a lifesaver when the inspiration deserts you.
  • Papers: Die Cuts With a View
  • Image: Penny Black... Royal Mail
  • Ribbon from my stash
  • Holly: Sizzix Die
  • Berries: fluffy glittery pom-poms found in the depths of my stash cupboard
  • Stamp: Studio G Christmas Set
Yes I am still in Christmas mode and couldn't resist using this cute hedgie image sent to me by my lovely bloggy buddy Dawny.
I am off on holiday today to a gorgeous house just outside Inverness..an early birthday treat from my Son and DIL....but the weather forecast is "SNOW on the HILLS" and we are going to be surrounded by them....so I may have to dig out my scarf just like my hedgie friend and will be packing lots of cosy stuff....have even looked out my lovely snuggly cuddly PJ's. I kid you not I am going to be having serious blog withdrawal symptoms not being able to visit all your blogs and see your fabulous creations for ONE WHOLE WEEK....so I promise next week to be sending you all double hugs.....Be good while I am away and happy crafting!!!
Lots of Love.......Kath xxxxxxxxx
