Penny Black Saturday May Challenge...

Morning folks...the crafty girl has popped out of hibernation or escaped from the kitchen make-over chain gang to be more precise because it's Saturday and time for this month's challenge from Penny Black Saturday which is a nice easy one...
ANYTHING GOES
and here's my "managed to sneak into the cubbyhole" card...there was no time to muck about this month over egging the pudding...a bit of a back up against the wall...rushing at the last minute effort but I rather like it...love the gorgeous butterflies stamped and embossed on to Hero Arts beautiful layering papers and I seem to be drawn to neutral colours at the moment...blame all those paint charts I've been pondering over of late...


and a sidey-on view of my ready to fly off butterflies...
As always there are fabulous prizes...gift vouchers to spend over at...
thanks again to our wonderful sponsors for their generosity

The weather forecast isn't looking too good for the Bank Holiday weekend...a perfect excuse to retreat to your crafty space, look out your Penny Blacks and get inking...me I'm on demolition duty trying to persuade some pesky tiles to loosen their grip on the walls and I have the sneakiest of feelings that it may end up with the men in white coats arriving with a straitjacket with my name on it.
Enjoy your weekend and I'll see you tomorrow to share another "sneaky play" make
Hugs Kath xxx
