Penny Black Saturday Challenge.....Week 83

Morning folks....it's Saturday once again and time for another challenge at Penny Black Saturday.
The challenge this week is a sketch (in fact.....2 sketches) from our lovely teamie Nat and you can choose which one you want to use or in fact.....do both if you feel so inclined.....I went with Sketch 1 and once again living life in the fast lane....decided to flip it.


And I struggled a bit with a theme for this card......still can't get my creative thoughts away from snow and snowflakes....so decided to go with the flow and when I saw poor little "Robbie"...who is a regular in the garden each winter.....hopping around looking for food.....I just had to use this gorgeous image....and in the words of the nursery rhyme

The North wind doth blow and we shall have snow,
And what will poor robin do then, poor thing?
He'll sit in a barn and keep himself warm
and hide his head under his wing, poor thing.








Papers: Funky Hand CD....Dreams Come True
Image: Penny Black....Wishes for Kisses
Hero Arts: Tiny Snowflakes
Cuttlebug Snowflake Die
Martha Stewart Scalloped Border Punch
Decoart Glamour Dust
Gems from stash
Sentiment....computer generated

And in this arctic weather our poor feathered friends are struggling to find food.....so every morning I am out in my jammies and dressing gown.....filling up all the feeders and breaking the ice on their drinking water.

We have another fabulous prize for one lucky winner
$20 voucher from 1-2-3 Stitch


 who have a treasure trove of Penny Black stamps in their online store......a great excuse to stock up on some of the gorgeous new Valentine stamps.
Look forward to see what you all create with this week's sketches and hey if you do both.....you have 2 chances of winning the voucher.....will be popping over to visit....catch up with you all later....
Hugs Kath xxxxx

Very apt card - love it Kath! I know the snow's a pain and don't get me wrong I love the sunshine too, but I do feel so much better when the weather's cold like this. So I'm not complaining 'at the moment' lol. Take care.

Love Lynda xxx

Fabulous card dear just right for this weekend, thanks for reminding me of that Nursery Rhyme, they seem to be out of fashion now don't they, but I love hearing them take me right back to my childhood

I remember that nursery rhyme too Kath. Lovely, lovely card. That hedgie image with the robin is one of my favourites. I think snow and ice is at the forefront of everybody's minds at the moment. You're right to go with the flow... Lauren x

Kath - I love the card and I too can't think beyond the snowy theme (it's snowing now!!)
I need to make 3 birthday cards for next week - like you I will be flying in by the seat of my pants.
(I wonder if I can make some 'snowy' flowers ummmm)?
Hope your aches and pains are easing.
Take care.

Lovely card us usual. Today is my birthday and I received a (much asked for) Cuttlebug, can't wait to play. BTW on the PB challenge blog, your name is linked to Jacqui's blog and not back here! Have a great day.

Kat said...

Love this card Kath. PB images are always so cute, I can't resist them. I still feel like doing wintry cards too lol!

By the way did you see the amazing picture of the robin in today's P&J. It was incredible, felt as if you could see every feather!
