Penny Black 56 ~ Red, White & Blue... SS 58 ~ Gill DT Week

Morning and a happy Saturday to you all.... well at this moment I still don't have my new wireless router at home so am having to do this post last Sunday whilst at my OH...... which means having to organise myself and make my cards in advance.... instead of last minute like I normally do... and I can honestly say it feels good to be a little ahead of myself for a change... not sure how long it'll last though, lol

Hope you all enjoyed Nat's fabulous sketch last week and hope I manage to see all your gorgeous work.

I like to wish a 'Happy Independance Day' to our Amercian followers and

We have a nice each challange for you this week:

Well I thought it was going to be an easy one when I set this challenge... and Im sure I say that about all the challenges (in my head)... but this is not a colour scheme I would normally use... and always have difficulty with it....... but here it is anyway
