Penny Black Saturday Challenge...Week 112

Morning's Saturday and the last day of July....can you believe how fast the weeks are going... I don't want to be a party pooper but let's face it we are rushing headlong now towards Christmas..believe me it will here before you know.....and wowee loads of fabulous inspiration from you all for our "It's Christmas in July Challenge" last week...quite a few ideas I will be storing away for my usual rushing at the last minute Christmas Card making session.....thanks to everybody who joined in the fun last week and it was lovely to see some new faces too.
The challenge this week from Penny Black Saturday is a recipe....time to look out your aprons and ingredients and cook up some fabulous cards to share with us all.....

1 Circle....2 Papers and 3 Flowers

Papers: Delish Designs...High Tea Collection
Image: Penny Black....Poppy Poem
Circle cut with Cricut George & Basic Shapes
Flowers: Petaloo
Gems and Ribbon from stash
Sentiment: TH Adage Ticket
Eyelets: WeR Memory Keepers

would you believe this one nearly turned into a disaster....oh yes you probably would going by my past record of diving in before I read the challenge.....yes Mrs Numptie forgot about the circle but managed to salvage  what could have ended up "a start all over again" card.

and we have 2 fabulous prizes this week for the lucky winners who will be chosen at random and announced next Saturday
15% lifetime discount voucher to spend in the online store
absolutely packed to the rafters with our beloved Penny Blacks and I don't think even Dick knows how many stamps he has for you to buy

4 Rolls of Ribbons of the winner's choice
another wonderful online store and if you are a ribbon..button and lace addict like me
I would suggest that you make yourselves a cuppa and have a browse

For some wonderful inspiration pop over to Penny Black Saturday and check out the gourmet feast that our fabulous Design Team have cooked up this week.  Can't wait to see what you all create this week and will be popping over for my weekly helping of Penny Black inspiration.
Catch up with you all tomorrow for a brand new challenge over at Get Funky...I will be loading up the car later today for another try at the Car Boot depending of course....fingers crossed third time lucky.
