Penny Black Saturday Challenge...Week 104

Morning folks on this beautiful Saturday morning.....has summer finally arrived....oh I do hope so.   And of course because it's Saturday it's time for another challenge over at Penny Black Saturday.     Fabulous response to last week's "In the Garden" challenge....thank you all for taking time out from enjoying the fabulous weather to join in the fun and I loved all the gorgeous cards you are such a talented bunch of Penny Black lovers.
The challenge this week is......


Papers: MME....Meadowlark
Image: Penny Black...Ode to Joy
Swirls: Tim Holtz Alterations
Ribbon....from stash
Sentiment: Craftwork Cards In Circle Sentiments

and just for a change I decided to delve into my humungous stash of patterned papers...oh yes living rather dangerously cutting into 2 this rate the pile is never going to go down but as always I used my faithful Distress Inks for the colour work.

and we have a little surprise for you all this week...
we have two fabulous prizes to give-away for 2 lucky winners chosen at random
we have a brand new sponsor.....the lovely Julia from Stampers Supermarket
has kindly agreed to come on board and will be giving away a Penny Black stamp
of the winner's choice on the first Saturday of each month.....

so pop on over and have a look around the website.....lots and lots of gorgeous Penny Blacks and there is also a second hand bin for stamps that have only been inked once or twice selling at a discounted price.
And what am I doing today....I  am skiving off  to Simply Create where my bloggy bud and fellow Aberdeenshire crafter..the lovely Judy is doing a demo-day with Prisma Pens....can't wait to see the expert in action...meeting up with lots of lovely crafters.....loads of chat and may even treat myself to lunch out.
I fear you will be having the pleasure of a certain someone's company tomorrow....he wants to introduce his new found friend....and once again he's been eyeing up the new stash in the cubbyhole.
Hugs Kath xxx

Amazing card Kath. I love these cute mice. I'm wondering what Buddy's up to now. What a naughty boy he is!!

Hope you had a lovely time at Alford. I had to work today so it would have been a bit late by the time I got there. But I've booked Saturday off next week so I can go to see your demos. Can't wait!!
