Penny Black Saturday Challenge...Week 144

Morning folks...yes it's Saturday and time for another challenge over at Penny Black Saturday....I will be girding my loins and putting on my crafty hat and comfy slippers all ready for Day 3 at the have scheduled this post...fingers crossed that Mr Blogger is in a good mood and is not having a "throwing his toys out of the pram" day....

The challenge this week is......

and what did I recycle....the paper and tag from a pack of Timmie goodies...just goes to show that you don't have to go down the grungy road if you don't want to....a bit of stitching....some pretty lace and a cool image makes for a feminine card.
