Penny Black 63 ~ Stitching

Hi everyone and a happy Saturday to you all... so nice to see the sun shining for the past couple of days, hope the weather holds out for the weekend ... it my OH birthday on Sunday and hoping to have a BBQ with some friends.

So another week and another Penny Black Saturday Challenge... thanks to everyone for your gorgeous creations last week with our Colur Challenge, so great to see so many of you joining in.

So onto this weeks challenge:

A nice easy one for you all....and its entirely up to you how you interpret your stitching... Hand, Sewing Machine or even Faux Stitching.... just have fun !!!

We have another fabulous prize this week:

Well its been another busy week with the puppies so I've not had alot of time to had to throw something together quick last night and here's what I came up with....

Not entirely happy.. but its Pink!!! so it will do for now.

I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday last week.... loved this sketch but didn't have time to make my DT card, so couldn't resist using it this week... Hope you don't mind Jo x..... and as I cacn't find the cable to my lovely little sewing machine I had do a little faux stitching.

Here's what I used:
Cardstock: Basic Grey ~ Lemonade Paper Pad
Image: Penny Black ~ Squeeze 'til I Squeak
Mediums ~ Pro Marker
Sentiment ~ SU
Supplies: Rose Buds & Lace ~ Bunny Zoes Crafts, Flowers ~ Poppicrafts, Pearls ~ Stash

The Design Team have all created their magic this week and given you some fabulous why not pop over and take a peek.

I'm meeting up with my mum and aunt today....their popping over to see Molly & Lucy and then we're going out for some lunch...looking forward to catching up.

Hope you all have a lovely weekend and manage to find some time to craft
