Penny Black 61 ~ Sketch by Beth & SS 63

Morning everyone and a Happy Saturday to you all... so nice to see a little sunshine yesterday, just hope it lasts the weekend.

Well its time for another Penny Black Saturday Challenge.... thanks to everyone who joined us with our Summer Challenge, and some fabulous work from you all again.
We have another fabulous challenge again for you this week
our very talented Beth has created a wonderful sketch for you all to work will

I had lots of fun with this one ~ thanks Beth.... and chose to use this very cute PB stamp ~ Bees & Bunny. I'm afraid the colour on my picture hasn't come out very well... the card is very Purple but with little light to take my picture last night the purple looks a little blue (will try to upload in the week with a better pic)

We have a fabuloous new sponsor this week

And they have kindly donated £20 gift voucher to spend in their wonderful online store.

I had to make a quick card for you this week, as I haven't had much time to craft this week... but I'm pretty happy with the end result.. although its not how I planned.

I love this sweet Tilda and of course I just had to create something Pink .. well you know me.. what more can you expect, I know I'm so predicable.. it's pretty sad, lol xx

We its a big day for us today as we're off to pick up

I think I'm the more excited....a big kid at heart really... and Im sure you're all smiling now reading this, lol...or thinking omg 2 puppies... are you mad !!!

So Im not sure how much blogging Im going to be able to get done over the next few weeks/months but will be sure to try and pop over and visit as many of you as possible...
