Penny Black Saturday Challenge....Week 59

Morning all.....yes it's Saturday and it's time to look out all those fabulous Penny Blacks.......another great response to last week's challenge....fabulous soft and sweet cards from you oh my what a talented bunch you are.....and we are so happy that you find the time to join in the fun each week.
The challenge this week on Penny Black Saturday is a recipe.......

3 Ribbons....2 Flowers....1 Pin/Charm
Papers: My Mind's Eye...Bloom & Grow 6 x 6 Pad
Image: Penny Black "In a Pear Tree" Clear Stamp Set
Ribbon...Lace...Twine & charm from stash
Sentiment: Hero Arts "Hey Little Birdie" clear stamp set
Flowers: My Mind's Eye Decoupage Pad
Buttons: Basic Grey
Yes I am still playing with these gorgeous goodies from My Mind's Eye and thought I would use this cute little birdie image from one of Penny Black's brand new Christmas stamp sets.....the ones I got for my Christmas project I was working on a couple of weeks ago....but it doesn't have to be Christmas...a real all rounder stamp...and you know I love my birdie cards...
We have another fabulous prize for you this week.....
a 15% off voucher from the lovely Dick
at PB Stamps....who has kindly offered to be our regular sponsor
for the last week of each kind is that......
Well folks it's time to look out your crafty aprons and get cooking.....can't wait to see what you come up with for our recipe this week and will be popping over for a taster during the the meantime have fun.
Will be back tomorrow with another challenge card and I promise I will be giving the Bloom & Grow a bit of a miss......found some more fabby paper that I bought some time ago and had completely forgotten about....can you imagine all the stuff I am going to find that I didn't know I had when I start clearing out the cubbyhole.
