Penny Black Saturday Challenge...Week 158

Morning folks...yes it's Saturday and that means another challenge over at Penny Black Saturday....loved all your stitchy cards from last week...gorgeous creations and well done to all those who were totally out of their comfort zone but had a go.  Apologies if I didn't manage to visit the late entries...blame Mr Blogger who wouldn't let me leave comments and no amount of ticking or unticking of the sign in box would persuade him.

The challenge this week is....
if you could only take one stamp with you to your Desert Island Paradise...which one would it be..crikey speak about the 24 million dollar many to choose from but after much oohing and just had to be...

Papers: MME Lost and Found
Papermania Kraft Card
Penny Black...Whispers 3377K
Seam Binding...The Ribbon Girl
Brads: American Crafts
Sentiment: LOTV...Set 7 Circular Sentiments...For You

and fabby prizes this week for 2 lucky winners who will be chosen at random and announced next Saturday
4042K Daisy Fields

a yummy assortment of satin and polka dot ribbons in various colours...loopy trim and lace

Believe me....the way my work load is at the moment the thought of being marooned on a desert island with my crafty stuff sounds absolute bliss...but I would need a Man Friday to keep me company...who would I prizes for guessing...only one person fits the bill...the one and only King of Distress and Prince of All Things Grungy...Mr TH...there would be no fear of me sending out any SOS messages in a bottle...building any distress signal fires or lashing configuration boxes together with tissue tape to make a raft...and before I am inundated with e-mails from Furry Boy fans it goes without saying that the hooligan would have to come too. Well a girl can dream can't she but it's back to reality...the four walls of the cubbyhole and the crafty list beckon.
Need to get back in the crafting groove after too many Wimbledon afternoons and sadly Andy Murray just didn't have what it takes to beat the mighty Nadal....have a sneaky feeling he is going to be another Henman...never making it past the semis and tomorrow is the Mens Final...who do you think is going to money's on Djokovic but Rafa won't go down without a fight....guaranteed to be a cracking match.
Catch up with you all tomorrow.
