Penny Black Saturday Challenge....Week 108

Morning folks..I can hardly believe we are now halfway through the year and already it's time for the first challenge in July over at Penny Black Saturday.  I loved all your fabulous paper patch creations for last week's challenge and thank you for taking time out from the glorious weather we have been having to join in the fun.....but it's time for a brand new challenge and this week it's a colour combo.....

we have lots to celebrate this week and firstly I would like to wish all our lovely Penny Black friends from across the pond a very
 Happy 4th of July 
and we are so excited to be welcoming on board our new sponsors
the company who over the years have given us all so much pleasure with their wonderful range of stamps 

so this week's card just had to have a stars and stripes theme

Papers: Stampin Up & Bazzill
Image: Penny Black.....Hang On Hedgie
Ribbon: John Lewis...Grosgrain
Sentiment: American Crafts...Foam Thickers
and Alphabet stickers from stash

and we have lots of yummy prizes for the lucky winners of this week's challenge from.....
not one but 3 prizes from the newly released Betsy Bluebell and Mimi range of stamps and aren't they just the cutest

and that's not all.....from another of our regular sponsors...the lovely Julia at Stampers Supermarket
a stamp of the winner's choice from the online shop

and if you are looking for some Red White and Blue inspiration....all you need to do is pop over to Penny Black Saturday and check out the fabulous cards from the Design Team.  So it's over to you now and I look forward to paying you all a visit during the week to see what you have created.
And oh dear Mr Murray was just no match for the ferocious Nadal forehand.....but I think we will be in for a cracking Men's Final on Sunday....have already reserved my seat on the sofa and if it goes to 5 sets..goodness knows what time dinner will be served.
Mr Furry Boy will be popping over tomorrow to say some thank you's and I think he may have a little birthday give-away.
Happy Crafting
Hugs Kath xxx

Great card Kath, love the blue paper on the right, (I guess that is the Stampin Up one? I need to get meself some of those papers).

Shame about the tennis eh? Another one of our "nearly" wins boohoo.... did you read about the person in the crowd shouting "I blame David Beckham!" haha joker!!

Kat said...

Great card Kath, love how you've used the stars and stripes.

Pity about the tennis but I was reading in the paper (P&J) that the match was a lot closer than the straight sets result implies. I read too that David Beckham has been seen as a bit of a jinx lol!

WOW! I LOVE that card! Color, stamps, layout, perfect!
Pitty about Andy M, but Rafa was just to tough. I've also got my spot all reserved on the couch in front of the big screen. Doubt it's gonna go 5 certainly not 70-68! Wasn't that something! Enjoy the match,
