Penny Black Saturday Challenge....Week 124

Hi Folks....crikey it's the weekend again before you know and time for another challenge over at Penny Black obviously all loved Debby's sketch as much as the team did and wow you well and truly rocked it with fabulous cards.
We have some fabulous news to share with you all....we have an addition to our happy little band of Penny Black lovers....yes the Penny Black Saturday Team  has a new member....the lovely and very talented JENNY has agreed to come on board...we are over the moon and were cock-a-hoop when she said pop on over and give her a great big Penny Black welcome.

The challenge this week is.....

to get you all in the mood for Halloween....the time for witches..warlocks..ghouls and all those scary things that go bump in the night to make an appearance.......

Papers: WeRM...Nonsense collection
Image...Penny Black...Beware The Dog
Fence..Tim Holtz Alterations
Sentiment...American Crafts Fabric Stickers
Ghosts...Quickutz Die
Ribbon from stash

Must confess I struggled with this one....not really into making Halloween fact not really into Halloween...but it's great fun for the kids with their trick and treating and it brings back childhood memories of visiting the farmer up the road to beg for the hugest turnip in the pile....hours carving it out and stinking up the house for weeks after and then coming home on the night laden down with bags of apples oranges sweets and if you were very lucky a sixpence or two which in today's money was 2.1/2p......the good old days.

And the prize this week for one lucky winner who will be chosen at random and announced next Saturday is from Fantastic Ribbons

4 Rolls of Ribbon of the Winner's choice
And if you are a ribbon addict like me.....pop over and check the huge selection of ribbons and buttons to tempt you....special bulk buy deals and special offers and if you are attending the Hobbycraft Show at the SECC.....Fantastic Ribbons will be on Stand K12 so make sure you pay them a visit....say hello to Keith and see the fantastic range of ribbons on offer in the flesh and not my fault if you have no willpower.
Can't wait to see all your spooky nights cards this week....will be popping by as usual to pay you a visit.
Catch up with you all tomorrow for my Nora Batty moment...happy crafting everyone.

  9. Never been into Halloween cards either Kath but now that Poppy is older I'll probably make a card for her. I've already made little gift bags for their chocolate buttons but I forgot to take them when we were babysitting last week!

  10. Meant to say I know what you mean about what Halloween used to be like. I think nearly everyone went out guising and we had to sing or do a poem or whatever. We used to get nuts and fruit, maybe the odd sweetie, thruppence or sixpence if you were lucky. One lady made toffee apples but you had to get there quick to get one!!
