Penny Black 64 ~ Christmas

Morning everyone and a Happy Saturday to you it's time for another Penny Black Saturday Challenge.

Thanks to everyone who joined in on our Stitching challenge last week...gorgeous creations from you all again and some fabulous stitch work too.

So onto this weeks challenge:

We know its only August.... but we all need to get started on those Christmas cards... well I do thats for sure. So a nice easy one again for you all this week.

I had to create something quick again this week, as the puppies are being a bit of handful due to the bad weather we've they've not been able to play in the garden much...and their both being naughty in the having to keep my eye on them constantly... the little rascales.
I love love making Christmas cards... I remember when I first starting crafting almost 2 years ago...I started with Christmas cards and it always brings back such happy memories of being so chuffed with myself for a creating my own cards....sounds silly now but it always makes me smile. So now I've started my festive juicies may be seeing alot more from now till December...but I think a little Christmas shopping spree is in build up my stash.
I love this adorable kitty and thanks to my good friend Tracy I was able to make my card with him... thanks hun. And ofcourse what better papers than my favourtie festive Basic Grey ~ Wassail and a little raffia.

Oh no I just noticed that whilst rushing to colour this cute kitty I've messed up the bottom balloon...naughty me !!!!

We have another fabulous prize this week from our sponsors:

Happy & Cool

The Design Team have outdone themselves again this week and created some fabulous inspiration for you all.... and very festive too.... thanks girls, you truely are a talented bunch. So if you want to join in the fun then pop over see us.
Have a great Bank Holiday weekend everyone
Happy Crafting
