Penny Black Saturday Challenge...Week 169

Morning folks....I can hardly believe that this time last week I was in Harrogate...where does time go but that was then and this is now and it's time for another challenge over at Penny Black Saturday.  Well done everyone on all your yummy delicious cards for last week's challenge...the lucky winner has been chosen so pop on over and check it out....woohoo it may well be YOU.
The challenge this week is...
a chance to play with this super cute image I brought home from Harrogate and totally suitable for the horrendous wet and windy weather we've been having in my neck of the woods...

Papers: Pink Petticoat...Little Fleurs
Jilly Bean Soup...Blossom
Image: Penny Black...Sunshine in the Rain
Clouds: TH Alterations "On The Edge" Scallops
Sentiment: Penny Black....Salutations
Hero Arts...Lauderdale Road
I fiddled and faffed around with this card but it just didn't turn out as I intended but that's what happens when you leave things until the last time to start over...the "back up against the wall" syndrome obviously didn't kick in this time around...c'est la vie...

we have a fabulous prize up for grabs once again
from our lovely Penny Black buddy
"Chicky Night"
Pop over and check out all the gorgeous Friendship cards this week from our super talented guest designer Jules and the rest of the girls on the team.   I'll be popping over to visit you all during the the meantime have a great weekend whatever you're doing and I'll see you all tomorrow for a brand new Colour Challenge from The Ribbon Girls.

  15. Such a sweet and adorable card. Love how it turned out! Kath, I just have to tell you how much I enjoy your blog. Not only are you a fabulous crafter, but I love reading your cute and funny commentaries about all the antics that you and the furry boy enjoy. You are quite the lady. I only wish we were not a contenant away. I think you would just be a hoot to know, and would love to take classes from you. Have a great weekend.

  16. what a sweet card, you've made, so lovely and i like the paper whit the stripes!

  17. I love that stamp you've used and especially the colours you've chosen. Hope you have a good weekend.

  18. Your combination of spots & stripes is quite striking & I like that little teeny bird & how you've echoed the little flower he is holding with your punched ones. Wet & horrid here today - sunshine one moment & hailstones the next!
