Penny Black Saturday Challenge...September

Hi folks...the first Saturday of September already and that means it's time to join in the fun over at Penny Black Saturday...the challenge this month is...
ANYTHING BUT A CARD
so I decided to decorate a box with this image of a beautiful Venetian lady
40-127 Venetian Summer
using gorgeous papers from Finnabair...a little bit of Vintage Photo inking...overstamping with...
40-237 Life's Messages
and paper piecing from the same collection of papers...

finished off with seam binding and gorgeous flowers from The Ribbon Girl
and as always there are fabby prizes up for grabs from our very generous sponsors
$20 voucher
and
and delicious makes from the rest of the girls on the Design Team.
So it's over to you now and we look forward to seeing what you make.
I'm in Sheffield today demonstrating the Fiskars Fuse Creativity System at the local Hobbycraft so if you fancy popping along to keep me company...I'll be delighted to see you and woohoo there will be a very generous 20% discount off Fiskars Fuse products just for TODAY. You'll be relieved to know...going by past travel adventures...that me and my uber "everything but the kitchen sink" heavy demo kit arrived without a hitch...in the meantime I'm heading down for breakfast...nothing like a full English to set you up for the day and I'll see you all tomorrow to share some makes with the gorgeous brand new "Christmas Box Collection" from Craftwork Cards.

I've seen that stamp before and didn't really think much of it til I saw what you have done with it. It may very well be my next purchase! Have fun today. Can't wait to see what you get up to. Valxxx

What a gorgeous box! Love the sentiments too. I know what you mean about "the kitchen sink" - just packing to go to my daughters tomorrow for 5 days house and dog sitting and thought I would catch up on my theatre sewing and some card making - you should see what I am taking with me. Will I fit it all in the car and still have room for my lovely Jack Russell Polly who's coming with me for a little holiday too? My hubby can't believe I need all this stuff, but we all know better don't we......Sadly have to leave the computer behind so will miss you for a few days. X

Oooh, oooh! I've got this stamp and LOVE it!!! You've chosen just the right colours here for your box and given everyone even more reason to go get it too. So pleased to hear you got to see Anne today. You have worked hard for those breakfasts too! Hugs, Jenny x
