Penny Black Saturday Challenge..Week 21

It's been a week of goodbyes and hellos...... so sad to see the lovely Jovi leaving the team......we're gonna miss you.....sending love and best wishes for the future and enjoy lots of quality time with your family......I will be visiting you often to see your creativity in action and the gorgeous pics you post on your bike rides.

and a big HELLO to

Debbie.....Carole.....Marcea....Domi.....Nat......Pauline

the new members of the Design Team.....very talented crafters who are going to be a great asset to the Design Team and I can't wait to see your fabulous creations on future challenges. Welcome to the team girls.

Great response to last week's challenge and such a high standard for the DT call....I didn't envy Tracie having to choose and I know she found it hard. We have a real talented bunch of Penny Black fans visiting us every week and we truly appreciate your entries.....like me lots of you didn't own any PB Halloween stamps but you adapted what you had to fit in with the theme and well and truly rocked the challenge....great work everybody.
The challenge this week on Penny Black Saturday is

G E T...S P A R K L Y
(Bonfire Night)

This one was a real challenge for me......the old crafter's block.....take heart all you new papercrafters out there...it happens to the old timers too and I know why they call them challenges.
I ain't a big fan of November 5th.....Bonfire Night......it can be great fun for the children but as with everything is totally spoilt by the few.....my big bugbear is the the fact that people start letting off fireworks weeks in advance and any of you out there that have pets will know the distress and anquish it can cause them...it doesn't seem to bother Buddy too much at the moment but our last Goldie Ben was absolutely terrified and night after night he would cower at my feet or lie on my knee and shake with fear....it was awful to watch. So I decided to theme my card on the fact that a little consideration goes a long way and remember the poor animals out there.....their hearing is much more acute than ours and even I get a fright when some of those bangers go off.

  • Cardstock: Black from my stash
  • Image: Penny Black...sent to me by Tracie....so I have no idea what this little cutie is called.
  • Wording: Adorn-It Tiny Etched Alphabet & American Craft Thickers
  • Lots of Glitter and stars from my stash
Well don't let old party pooper Kath spoil your fun on Bonfire Night.....wrap up warm and be safe.
Catch up with you all later......Love Kath xxxxxxx

I totally agree!! I can't let Poppy out for about 2 weeks either side of firework night - bless her! This card is fab - I really struggled too actually, and kept shuffling bits around til I got fed up and just stuck them down!! Have a great weekend! xx

Hi Kath, oh wow your card is fabulous - and I totally agree, I always feel for the poor animals - our spaniel was always so scared of them. I'm still struggling what with such a busy week but hope to get a card on soon.
Have a lovely weekend
hugs :)x
