Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Week 70

Morning folks and can you believe it's Saturday already....time once again for all us Penny Black addicts to look out our beloved stamps....get inking and have some fun.  Another fab response to last week's "Autumn Breezes" challenge and I really enjoyed all your different takes on the challenge using the gorgeous hues of Autumn.
The challenge this week on Penny Black Saturday is one I think you are going to rather like.....


Papers: Fancy Pants....Christmas Magic
Image: Penny Black "In a Pear Tree"
Sizzlits...Flowers..leaves..branches die
Flowers: Prima Sprites
Buttons and twine from stash
Sentiment: Penny Black...."In a Pear Tree"

I got the "In a Pear Tree" clear stamp set for a magazine commission and I'll be perfectly didn't tick any of the boxes.... but it's beginning to grow on me and I love that cute little birdie....and I have just noticed that I forgot to colour the little dots at the end of the birdie's tail.....another Dawny P moment I fear.

And another fabulous prize for one lucky winner this week from

$20 gift voucher to spend in their online shop

The Design Team are going to be looking for some Guest Designers over the coming keep entering your beautiful creations so we can come visit you and who knows.....perhaps invite you to join our fabulous team of girls for one whole month.
That's it for today folks......time to have a rummage in the old button box...get tying those bows and most of all....have lots of fun with your Penny Blacks.....can't wait to see what you all create this week...and will be back later with a pic of the tiny bundle who caused all the fuss yesterday.
