Penny Black Saturday Challenge....Week 50

Morning Folks......another fabulous reponse to last week's Recipe and wow......very creative cooking from everyone if I may's great to see so many folks joining in the challenge each week and lovely to welcome some new faces...we really appreciate you taking the time to join us and sharing  your creativity with us all.   The challenge this week on Penny Black Saturday is........



Papers: WeRMemory Keepers....Nonsense Pad
Image: Penny Black
Buttons: Basic Grey
Flowers: Prima...Got Flowers
Brenda Pinnick Felt Flower

And before you say anything.....I know...I went a little overboard with the buttons....but the challenge does say....GALORE and you know me....I don't do things by halves.   I love buttons.....and have an old fashioned button box...just like my Mum.....choc full of memories....buttons from baby clothes....toggle buttons from the kids' duffle coats....buttons from school blazers......brass buttons from a Navy Blue M&S blazer...I used to wear with chinos and how long ago was that look in fashion.....and isn't it wonderful that a simple item like a button can bring memories flooding back....I think this must be an age thing...nostalgia and all that.
And we have fabulous prize for you again this week...this adorable stamp from the lovely Tracie

And a HUGE toot toot for my lovely and mega talented teamie PAULINE who had her Vintage Penny Black card featured as CARD OF THE MONTH on the PB Stamps website.....well done and so's gorgeous.
So all you need this week folks.....are buttons galore...let your imagination run wild.....can't wait to see what you all create this week....will be popping over to visit you but in the's toodle oo from me...back tomorrow with a challenge card or two.
