Penny Black Saturday Challenge....Week 120

Morning folks....before you know Saturday is here and it's time for another challenge over at Penny Black Saturday.    We had a wonderful response to last week's challenge and lots of fabulous cards following Joey's sketch....big thank you to everyone who joined in the fun and a special thank you to our lovely guest designer...Kathy Racoosin for joining our happy little band of Penny Black lovers and sharing her fabulous inspiration with us all.
Sadly we are saying goodbye this week to our lovely teamie Janneke....we are so sorry to see her go but she wants to devote more time to her other hobby which is photography and we wish her all the best for the future and a big thank you for all the fabulous inspiration you have shared with us and for your contribution to the team.
But it's time to move on to this week's challenge and hope you will forgive us all for wishing for an...

INDIAN SUMMER
(fat chance if the weather this week has been anything to go by...we can but dream)



Background created with TH Distress Inks...Scattered Straw...Wild Honey & Fired Brick
overstamped with icons from Penny Black: Salutations
Image: Penny Black....Sweet Catch
Ribbon: Fantastic Ribbons
Sentiment: TH Adage Tickets
Flowers: Prima
Brad from stash

And if my memory serves me right....didn't we used to have glorious weather in September away back in the good old days..evening barbecues and sitting outside until it got dark..relaxing with friends over a bottle of wine or two..oh happy days.  Here we are at the last weekend in September and I suppose it's too much to hope for some warm sunny weather....if the chilly winds and wet weather here are anything to go by Autumn has arrived and Winter isn't far behind.
We have 3 fabulous prizes this week for some lucky winners who will be chosen at random and announced next Saturday.....pop over to Penny Black Saturday for the details and check out who were last week's lucky winners....who knows it may just be you.
The Budster and I are off for our morning stroll......he's OK with his built in wrap around super toasty coat but I will have to resort to the Michelin Man doggy walking gear.     The Super Insulated Furry Boy will be back tomorrow to announce the winner of his little give-away...you only have until midnight tonight to enter and just in case you thought I had forgotten.....
it's only.....
152
sleeps until the big day.

Can't wait to see all your fabulous creations this week and will be popping by to pay you all a visit.
Happy Crafting
Hugs Kath xxx

Oh this is so sweet! I love the image. I am up North at our cabin in WI and it is cold. The Loon is still here but I know she it getting ready to say good bye. It is going to get down to 32 tonight. We only have a small wood stove. I just hope the water pipe under the cabin doesn't freeze. We will be saying good bye to the cabin for the winter.
Have a great weekend and thanks for the cute card.

Gorgeous card Kath, love the colours you've used. I agree it's certainly no Indian Summer here in the North East. Came home today to find two neighbours combining! After all that rain this week. I think the poor farmers are getting desperate now.
