Penny Black Saturday Week 22

Well I think we all found last week a bit of a challenge...I know I did.... but well done to those brave souls who entered and I loved looking at all your fabulous sparkly creations........now Tracie has decided to make this week's challenge a little bit trickier....get you all thinking outside of the box.....WHAT...I hear you say...my thoughts exactly when I first saw the challenge....the reason being I don't own even one teeny weeny sentiment stamp.....but thankfully Tracie and Jacqui came to my rescue and sent me some ....phew and yes you've guessed correct

the challenge this week on PENNY BLACK SATURDAY is.....

Sentiment Only
(no images)
and the prize this week kindly donated by the lovely Tracie
a beautiful sentiment stamp.....just in time for making your Christmas cards.
I kept it fairly simple this week with my favourite black and white theme and using some of the papers from Funky Hand's download...."Salt and Pepper".
You are in for a real treat this week....the Design Team have worked their special magic and come up with fabulous creations for the challenge and a big welcome to the new girls on the team......great work everybody.
  • Papers: Funky Hand download....Salt & Pepper
  • Cardstock: Black Bazzill
  • Ribbon: American Crafts
  • Sentiment: Penny Black
The white dots on the black Christmas Trees are just 3D dots without the top paper off...I was going to glitter them and then thought better of it....the camera ain't too happy with glitter and sparkly at the mo.
Well I have a lunch date today with two gorgeous fellas....ain't I lucky...Brodie and Oliver are taking Grandma out for her birthday lunch......how sweet and is this what retirement is all about....AM I NOW A LADY WHO LUNCHES?
I will be back tomorrow with pics of my gorgeously fabulous birthday cards and loads of thank you's
Love Kath xxxxx
