Morning heart goes out to all our lovely Norwegian friends...another senseless tragedy in this insane world we all live prayers and thoughts are with you all.
Saturday comes round once again and it's time for another challenge over at Penny Black Saturday....I loved all last week's Bunting creations and a big thank you for taking time out to play along...pop over and check out the lucky winner of that gorgeous Penny Black stamp....who knows it may just be you.
The challenge this week is....

and we have another fabulous prize this week for one lucky winner who will be chosen at random and announced next Saturday from

4 Rolls of Ribbon of the winner's choice

So what are you planning for this weekend....all a bit weather dependent isn't it.    If the sun decides to put his hat on...I think I will be out in the garden...if not it could be playtime in the cubbyhole.  I'll be popping by to see what you all create for this week's challenge....have fun whatever you're doing.
Catch up with you all tomorrow
