Penny Black Saturday...Week 92

Morning folks and where has this week gone....can't believe it's a week since I was hard at work at the SECC and 2 weeks today....I will be on my way to the NEC....and before we know that will be 3 months of the year gone already....never enough hours in a day.
Big thank you to all those who joined in the fun last week and made absolutely gorgeous easel cards and well done to the all the first timers....they are so easy to make and I'm sure that now you have taken the plunge....there will be no stopping you.
The challenge this week over at Penny Black Saturday is.....

and now that the weather has improved.....let's hope that spring is well and truly on the way

Papers: Craftwork Cards...Sugar & Spice
Image: Penny Black.....Tweet Wishes
coloured with Distress Inks
Flowers: Prima
Martha Stewart Border punch
Hero Arts: Stripes Pattern
Charm from stash
Sentiment: Hero Arts...Hey Little Birdie

and the prize this week is a $20 voucher from
1-2-3 ~Stitch

a great opportunity to get yourselves some of the gorgeous new Penny Blacks

Yes Spring is on the way and that means a mega tidy up job in the garden.....I hate how neglected the garden looks after the winter weather...but it's finding time to get out there and start cutting back all the overgrown climbers and shrubs so that these little guys aren't  hidden under all the debris.

But the decorating is still to B&Q to stock up on some emulsion and other bits and pieces...they have 20% off everything today and you know me I love a bargain.
Pop over to Penny Black Saturday and see what our fabulous Design Team and Guest Designer have come up with for this week's challenge and get inking those Penny Blacks....looking forward to seeing all your gorgeous Spring cards this week and will be popping by for a little visit.
Happy Crafting....Hugs Kath xxx
