Penny Black Saturday...Week 69

Morning folks and it's Saturday..and it's the beginning of the weekend and time to get those Penny Blacks looked out again.   Thank you all for having a go at the colour challenge last week and boy did you come up with fantastic cards....you really are such a talented bunch.
The challenge this week over at Penny Black Saturday is........

AUTUMN BREEZES




Papers: MME Bloom & Grow
Image: Penny Black....Fantasy
Background Image: Personal Impressions
Flower: Prima Sprite inked with Tim Holtz Distress Ink...Mustard Seed
Button...twine and gems from stash

I must admit the old brain had to go into overdrive for this one.....just couldn't think of a Penny Black image I could use until I remembered this beautiful tree and because it has no leaves.....perfect....and it definitely needs a sentiment.....but to be honest that had to wait....can't overtax the old brain too much.
We are definitely into Autumn now.....and I do love when the leaves start to change colour and go that reddy coppery gold.....and then the bit I am not too keen on.....when they all blow off the trees and before you know the garden is under a carpet of leaves.......you just get them swept up and lo and behold another pile arrives blown in from someone else's garden...one of those never ending jobs.
We have another fabulous prize this week for one lucky winner.....
very kindly donated by our lovely teamie......Carole


Hand Mailed

one of my absolute favourites out of the newly released Christmas Collection

Can't wait to see all your gorgeous Autumn cards this week and don't worry if you think you don't have a suitable image.....just go with Autumn colours......and that will be fine......will be popping over to pay you all a visit.
