Penny Black Saturday....Week 87

Morning folks....another fabulous response to last week's challenge and beautiful cards from you all....being a bit of Penny Black addict....I love paying you all a visit and seeing what you do with these gorgeous stamps....and you never disappoint....such a talented crew.
And the challenge this week over at Penny Black Saturday is.......

PINS AND PEARLS




Papers: MME Life Stories
Image: Penny Black..Tiny Wishes Clear Stamp Set
Martha Stewart Border Punch
Flowers...lace...pearls and pin from stash

I have to admit that I struggled big time with this one....knew the look I wanted to achieve but couldn't quite pull it off and to make matters worse couldn't seem to get a decent pic either....well that's life folks....even us old seasoned crafters have days when everything goes to pot.....so if you are newly starting out at this game....take heart.
And we have a new guest designer this month....the lovely and very talented Janneke....so pop on over to Penny Black Saturday and give her a great big Penny Black welcome.

And another fabulous prize up for grabs this week kindly donated by the lovely 
Clair & Sharni at Valentines



Penny Black "Robust" Alphabet


The snow has disappeared and been replaced by rain....well that's an understatement...it's chucking it down....only weather that our webbed feet friends would love....it's dark and dismal so a day in the cubbyhole sounds good....let's hope that Mr Mojo is rested and ready for work......so it's time to get the kettle on and get crafting.   Can't wait to see what you all create with your pins and pearls and will be taking a break to pop over and visit.
Happy Crafting.....hugs Kath xxxx
