Penny Black Saturday Challenge...Week 207

Morning's the last day of's been a right old week and there's the truth...scorchio temperatures in the south...horrendous amounts of rainfall and flash flooding in the north and probably the biggest Wimbledon shocker ever...Rafa is out...still can't quite believe it and then my boy Federer took it so close to the wire last night I swear I aged about 10 years...nail biting...edge of your seat about skidding in by the seat of your pants and no-one was more surprised than me to wake up this morning to the sun shining...yes blue skies and just little hints of wispy clouds...can I cope with all this excitement.
And of course it's Saturday the start of the weekend and time to join in the fun over at Penny Black Saturday.  I loved all your creations for last week's challenge...there certainly were heaps of flags flying and bunting waving...the winner has been announced so it's time to pop on over and check out if it's you.
This week's challenge is...

there's lots of Penny Black Saturday exciting news to share with you all this week...
firstly...we are very honoured to welcome a brand new sponsor...
the lovely Denise and Jenny from
who have very generously provided this week's prize...
to spend in their online store where you will find lots of your favourite Penny Blacks along with oodles of other gorgeous goodies for your crafty stash
and the bestest news of all....we have a very special lady...someone that you all know and love as much as we our little Penny Black Saturday family...
my old mucker...the lovely and very talented

The Furry Boy sends big snuggly hugs for all the lovely birthday wishes yesterday and the cubbyhole crew are getting in party mood...excited at the thought of all that cake but I need to remind the birthday boy that he needs to blow the candles out before he dives head first into the cake.  A little have until 8pm tonight to enter the Summer Seasonal Distress Ink Give-Away...I'll see you all tomorrow to announce the winner.

  8. The colours of this are just super & I love that floral trellis you created. All the little frogs are great fun. I had to chuckle at the need to blow out the candles prior to tucking in - Buddy - you make sure you do for you won't look so handsome with singed fur.
