Penny Black Saturday Challenge...Week 163

Morning folks...before we know it's Saturday and time for another challenge over at Penny Black Saturday...I was blown away by all your lovely Penny Black backgrounds...obviously there was a wealth of thinking out of the box moments and I wonder who our Guest Designer for September is going to need to pop over right now and check it out...woohooo it could be YOU.
The challenge this week is.....
after a couple of weeks of challenges which were to be honest stinkers...we thought we would let you off the hook this it's time to have a rummage in your stack of Penny Blacks and let your imagination run riot.

Image: Penny Black...Candy Cane Perch
Background created with Distress Ink Stormy Sky
with a quick spritz from a Mini Mister
Snowflakes: Martha Stewart Punch
Sentiment: Penny Black Christmas Critters
this was another of my running at the last minute cards...put together real quick and I rather like it....perhaps we are inclined to overthink things when we have time on our hands.
We have fabulous prizes this week for two lucky winners who will be chosen at random and announced next Saturday....
Fun Filled Stockings
and from The Ribbon Girl
Fuschia Ribbon Kit

Look forward to seeing what you all create this week and will be popping over for a visit....hope you all have a great weekend whatever the weather or whatever you are planning.

  7. Just love those trees & the way you've picked out the green elements in the design with your snowflake gem centres. The blue of his outfit is a lovely change from red & really suits his brown fur & the overall colour scheme. Just Delightful.
    I freeze when under pressure so not sure this skidding business would suit me but it seems to serve you well.
