Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Week 57

Morning Folks....and it's a small miracle I am doing this post at all after the week of computer disasters I've had.     Once again a fabulous response to our colour challenge last obviously loved that one and lots and lots of fabulous......RED WHITE and BLUE cards......well done everyone.
The challenge this week on Penny Black Saturday is


Background created with Tim Holtz Distress Inks.....Weathered Wood & Brushed Corduroy
overstamped with flourish stamp from Craftwork Cards...Choko Collection
Image: Penny Black Enjoy Collection
Flowers: Prima
Tim Holtz: Adage Ticket
Fiskars Ribbon Slot Punch
Ribbon: American Crafts
Pearls from stash
I have no idea where those metal flowers came from....just stumbled upon them in my stash when I was looking for something else...have a feeling they are from Maya Road...but not sure and I'm hoping that you will count the curly wurly bits on the flourish stamp as swirls....hey that's what challenges are all is your interpretation of the theme.....that's my story and I'm sticking to it.
We have a fabulous prize for you this week
this super cute Penny Black stamp
kindly sponsored by the lovely Jacqui 
at Simply Create

this is my local craft store in Alford Aberdeenshire
and if you are within driving distance...believe me folks
it is well worth a visit

It's time to get those Penny Blacks looked out and get inking.....can't wait to see all your fabulous creations this week.....happy stamping everybody......Hugs Kath xxxxxxx
