Penny Black 65 ~ Hearts Desire + SS 67 Coco's DT Week

Penny Black Saturday Challenge 65

Morning everyone and a happy Saturday to you what a busy weeks its been...those puppies sure are keeping me busy...they had their first walk in the real world last week and it was a little difficult getting them used to the lead, but once off in the park they had a fabulous time....they've been playing around inthe garden this morning and I'll pop back later with some pics for you all to see what little minxies they are sometimes...
Well its time for another Penny Black Saturday challenge....thanks to everyone for joining in our Christmas challange..and for all your fabulous work again..I love Christmas and had loads of fun popping over to your blogs.
We have a nice easy one again this week:
Hearts Desire
Now you can interpret this as you can use hearts on your papers, embellishments or you can create a card for someone special...

I created a card this week for two very special parents... who's Anniversary it is today....
The gorgeous red & pink papers are from Poppicrafts (sorry can't remember the make !!) and they came with a sheet of paper filled with I cut a couple out and added them with 3d pads. I've used all my favourite things.... lace, charm, flowers, spacers... all from my stash.

We have another fabulous prize this week from
Horseshoe Crafts is an independent craft store in Ellesmere, Shropshire - sells a huge range of rubber stamps in their shop (including PB's) plus a large range of other craft material - including Penny Black papers! They also have an online store.

USArtQuest Watercolour palette - mica pearlescent paints in "interference" colours (these are the colours which are most vibrant when used on dark cardstock).

The design team have worked their magic again this why not pop over and take a peek and join in the fun while your there.

Have a great weekend
