Morning Folks....yes it's Saturday once again.....where are the weeks going....and it's time for all you Penny Black lovers to look out your favourite stamps..... a great response once again to Domi's fabulous loved it....and produced beautiful cards....I am just in awe every week at all the talented crafters joining in our challenge.
And the challenge this week on Penny Black Saturday is........

Image: Penny Black "Teddy & Company" Clear Stamp Set
Sentiment: HOTP Clear Stamp Set
Inks: Ti, Holtz Distress Ink Pads
Flowers: Punch I've had for years....the maker's name
has rubbed off with use
I loved this challenge.....a great excuse to use one of my new stamp sets from PB Stamps...last week's sponsor.....and isn't he just the cutest little dude....and you know me I love flowers on my fact....rarely make a card without a flower on it....but went a little wild with the flowers here....just punched loads and loads and loads in different colours.
We have a fabulous prize this week from a brand new fact a brand new online shop selling
fantastic ribbons and very aptly named

6 rolls of the most gorgeous organza...satin and grosgrain...5 metres in each roll
pop over to their website....great prices and a great selection of ribbons

Blooming Gorgeous.....well it certainly doesn't refer to the weather here at the moment....yesterday was absolutely minute it was brilliant sunshine and toasting....the next minute the sky was black and we had moonsoon conditions and later in the day.....we had such a heavy hailstone storm....I was marooned in the car after returning from the shops.....well that's Great Britain for you....all seasons in one day.   So without more's time to get those Penny Blacks looked out and get stamping.....can't wait to see what you all create this week.....will be popping over to check out your fabulous entries...happy crafting everybody.....toodle..oo for now......Hugs Kath xxxxxxx
P.S. To answer an e-mail question....the trees are also from the Teddy & Company Stamp set....perfect for creating a little scene either by cutting out or with a clever bit of masking.
