Penny Black Saturday 42 ~ THINK SPRING & Sketch Saturday 44

Morning everyone, hope your all well and had a good week.
I want to say a Big Thank You to everyone for the lovely comments and emails you sent me over the last week... its so lovely to have such lovely blogging friends and all you kind words are so much appreciated... It's not been an easy week and although I've managed to help my mum sort out a few thing, I know this week is not going to be much better as there's so much to do and deal with... but your support is helping me get through things - so Thank You So Much

Well as its Saturday and time for another
'Penny Black Saturday Challenge'

This week we'd like to see you work with a Spring Theme.... lots of bright and gorgoeus colours came to mind for me when I thought of this theme, and I just had to use my favourite Kay Miller Deisgns - paper download.... and this cute little Chick that I am ashamed to say was inked up for the first time and is now over a year old... shame on me !!!

We have another fabulous prize this week, so pop over and take a peek.
The Design Team have all created fantastic work again this week.
Im looking forward to seeing your gorgoeus creations this week, but apologise now if I dont manage to get round to you all... what with everything going on.
