Penny Black Saturday Challenge...Week 100 BLOG HOP

Morning folks.....yes it's Saturday and time for another Penny Black Saturday challenge....a rather special week....our 100th challenge and don't you think that calls for a bit of a celebration....but first a big thank you to all those who joined in the fun last week and congratulations to YENNI...who completed 6 cards...I think that must be a Penny Black Saturday record.

The challenge this week is a sketch and I thought it would be rather fitting if we could incorporate "100" into the sketch but I'm afraid I am useless at doing these fab looking sketches on Photoshop so I had to enlist the help of my lovely teamie Carole and hey didn't she do a brilliant job...

Are you going to join in the fun and play along on the blog hop.....all my lovely teamies and our past and present guest designers are joining in the fun and as a thank you for your continued support....they all have parcels of goodies to give-away.

If you have already joined the blog hop...you will have arrived here from the lovely JOEY....our guest designer from January....if not....you need to go back to Penny Black Saturday and start hopping from the beginning by visiting BETH who will then tell you the next stop on your journey....

And I couldn't resist using one of my new Penny Black Images



Backgrounds created with Hero Arts Shadow Ink....Soft Sand
Tim Holtz Distress Ink....Faded Jeans and Hero Arts....Cling Dots
Image: Penny Black....Stitch In Time stamped onto Sticky Back Canvas
Buttons: Basic Grey
Flower Prima
Sentiment: Hero Arts...Sew Simple
Tape Measure Stamp which I adore....don't know who makes it....but the lovely Jacqui at Simply Create managed to source it for me..have been looking for this stamp for ages....stamped onto Stampin Up Twill Ribbon coloured with Promarkers

and just a little thank you from me....
a little parcel of goodies......
Penny Black Stamped Images
Craftwork Cards..scalloped cards and envelopes
Ribbons...buttons...flowers and Card Candy


to be in with a chance of winning....just leave your name and a link to your entry With Mr Linky and I will choose a winner to be announced next Saturday.
My goodie give-away will close at 9.00pm GMT on Friday 14th May

edited to add: and guess who is having a bit of a doggy strop because he wasn't asked to join in the fun...so there will be a goodie parcel from "His Nibs" for one lucky commenter






To continue on your journey....you now need to pop over and say hello to the lovely
LIZ 
who was our December Guest Designer

Can't wait to see what you all create this week....will be popping by to pay you all a visit.......have a fun week on the blog hop.....and go check out the fabulous prizes up for grabs from our ever so generous sponsors.
I'm off to check out all the cards from my lovely teamies....no I haven't seen them yet this week either so like you I am in for a real treat...and boo...hooo....I don't qualify to win any of the prizes.
Happy Crafting

Great card, love the measuring tape stamp too. Reminds me I've got a similar one, have to dig that out and stamp it on twill tape ribbon! Poor His Nibs, wouldn't want him to pout.

Ann said...

Hi Kath - loved using the sketch and wow your card is just gorgeous. The tape measure stamp could be by Clarity. Barbara Gray was using one on Create and Craft yesterday. Love the way you have stamped it on to twill. All the time I was watching yesterday I kept wondering if it would look good stamped on ribbon and now I know.
My card using your fab sketch is here...
