Penny Black Saturday Challenge....Week 71

Morning folks....yes it's Saturday once again and time for another challenge from Penny Black Saturday.
Big thank you to everyone who took the time to enter last week's  challenge....fabby cards from you all and you sure do love your buttons and bows.
The challenge this week is a fab sketch from our lovely and mega talented teamie Nat ...and I know what you're thinking....crikey another blue and red card and more snowflakes.....sorry but I seem to be stuck in this rut and this is definitely the theme for this year's Christmas cards.

Papers: MME "The Merry Days of Christmas"
Image: Penny Black....."Jolly Follies"
Snowflakes: Cuttlebug Dies
Ribbon: American Crafts
Sentiment: MME "Merry Days of Christmas"
Gems: Papermania Shimmer Dots
Inkssentials White Opaque Pen
Decoart Glamour Dust

And this cute little mouse just tickled my he celebrating because it's Christmas or has he had one too many Christmas cocktails at the office that case the "Merry" sentiment may be highly appropriate...and I can well remember dancing with the lampost on one or two occasions in my much younger days I hasten add.

And we have another fab prize for one lucky winner this week
kindly donated by Clair & Sharni

a Stampin Up Scrub....great for getting those stamps properly clean

All you have do now is get those Penny Blacks inked up and join in the fun with Nat's sketch.....I love to see what you all create each week..will be popping over to pay you a the meantime happy crafting and will catch up with you all tomorrow .......Hugs Kath xxxxx
