Penny Black 60 ~ Summer

Hi everyone and a Happy Saturday to you all... hope you've all had a great week..... what has happened to our summer hey.. not much sunshine in London last week :( and it looks like there's not much to come either ... roll on our winter vacation in the sun.... Im counting the days.

Im so sorry for the lateness of my post today but I lost my connection completely last night and have had trouble with it all week .. one minute it'll work the next we lost it... and it's getting very frustrating now..... so I apologise for the lack of blogging last week and hope things will get sorted soon.

Well it's time for another fabulous challenge at Penny Black....thanks to everyone that joined us with our Recipe challenge last week.... just wish i was able to visit you all... but Im sure you all created some fabulous cards. So onto this weeks challenge...

Im sure with lack of sunshine we're having, this challenge will be a nice one to brighten up our spirits... Hope you'll have as much fun as I did with it. This adorable Kitty was sent to me from my good friend Tracy ~ thanks hun.... thought he would be perfect for this weeks challenge and have matched him up with these gorgeous papers from BG ~ Urban Prairie and finished off with a few of my favourite blooms.

We have another fabulous prize this week from

Clair & Sharni ~ (SU Demonstrators)
