Penny Black Saturday Challenge...Week 206

Morning folks...welcome to the weekend...crikey Saturdays seem to come round faster and faster and here we are in the middle of June already. I'm in danger of going off on a tangent about the dreary weather we're having so let's get back on track and the reason for today's post....yes it's time to join in the fun over at Penny Black Saturday.
Well done to everyone who entered last week's Red White And Blue Challenge...I loved all the different ways that you used the colours and of course the winner has been announced so you might just want to hop over and check it may well be your lucky day.
The challenge this week is...

after taking time out from the crafty schedule to make the aforementioned card for Buddy to give to his Dad on Father's Day (which is tomorrow in case you forgot) it looks like I've been pipped at the post and am beginning to think I've finally lost the plot...perhaps it's time to enrol in the "Crafty Doolally" Club after yesterday's post...there has to be a simple explanation for The Furry Boy's "all his own work" card he apparently managed to make for the occasion...I'm not buying it...oh he's super duper clever but not that clever...I have a sneaky feeling he enlisted the help of some secret crafty buddy...if not...then I've been sitting on a little goldmine all this time...I can't believe I'm about to share a card from the world's first crafty canine and if you left a comment could well be time for you to join me over at "The Doolally Club".
but enough of the tongue in cheek fun...back to the serious stuff...

there's a fabulous prize up for grabs this week from our very generous sponsors
5 Packs of Delicious Card Candi
Well it's over to you now...time to look out those Penny Blacks and get inking...I'll be popping across to pay you all a visit during the week and if the weather forecast for the weekend is anything to go by...keeping cosy and warm in your crafty space sounds like a great idea.
I'll see you all tomorrow over at The Ribbon Girls for another fabulous colour challenge

  1. ...loVe the texturs on your card Kath, beautiful work...and judging by Buddy's card I can see a new challenge site starting 'THE CANINE CRAFTERS' the proof is there & leaves us with no doubt that it could be quite 'paws-able'...Mel :)
    Right I'm off to take my medication!!

  2. 2 fabulous cards,great designs, can't choose between them,bet Buddy can. janex

  3. I think you are dolally but I love you. Buddy did a great job with a little help from his dolally Mum. Love your Penny Black card too. Carol xx

  4. I am happy to be considered part of the doolally club any day! I love both cards Kath, the one for Father's Day(that buddy allegedly did)has such a gorgeous image on it and on the other one, the circles are delightful, as are the colours and design.

  6. Tell you what Kath, that dog of yours has a steady paw, his card is great! Sxx

  7. Great card with all those circkles and the cute image but Buddy did a fantastic job on his card for Daddy - I guess he nevers looks at your blog?????

  8. Buddy you are amazing and l love the card you have created with a little help...good luck in the challenge x Susan x

  9. Well if Buddy used paws to tie that bow........I'll have to be a dog's dinner! That's probably the wrong mixture but ......
