Penny Black 45 ~ Nats Sketch & Sketch Saturday 47

I apologise for the lateness of this post.... but I thought I had scheduled it last night... and ooppps... it never happened. And as I've been out all day I didn't realise.

So finally Im here........

Morning everyone, hope you've all had a good week. Im so glad the weekends here.... I just hope the weather brightens... well its time for another Penny Black Saturday and we have a fabulous sketch this week by our very talented Nat.

First I'd like to thank everyone who joined in our Gift challenge, I know it wasn't easy for some, but you all made some truly wonderful gifts and I know I'll be having a go at a few of your wonderful ideas.

I'm sure your all going to have lots of fun with this one, the DT did and have created some fabulous work for you all again this week ~ so why not pop over and take a peek and feast your eyes on our prize.... kindly donated by Jacqui

I've used my favourite Kay Miller Design Papers ~ Hey Girlfriend, Im loving these pastel papers they are so beautiful and I got out my Swirl Punch again this week....

I look forward to seeing your creations with Nats sketch and will pop over and see you all later as Im off to work today for a few hours

Have a Great Day & Enjoy the Sunshine

Sketch Saturday ~ 47

Its time for another of Jo's fabulous sketch's and this one your going to love.... Thanks to everyone who joined in last week.

and there's a wonderful prize too this week from the very lovely
Emma Lockley ~ SU Demonstrator

My fellow DT buddies have all created some wonderful work again this week ~ so why not pop over and have a peek. We'd also like to welcome Diane as our Guest DT for the next 2 weeks.. if you've not seen Diane's work before you will be blown away with her talent... she has tried her hands at all sorts of crafts ~ so pop over and check out her gorgoeus blog and welcome her.
I had to make a very quick card last night as its been a rather busy week at work and can';t believe how quick to week has flown ~ I've used another one of my recently new Magnolia's and lots of gorgoeus blooms from Poppicrafts ~ I apologise for the pic.. not that great Im afraid.

I hope you can join us this week and look forward to seeing your creations.
Have a great weekend
