Ok, so it's time to 'fess up .... who's well ahead with their Christmas card makes ?? Hmmm .... thought not lol! Well now's your perfect opportunity to put a dent in that deficit, because this week we have a great new Penny Black Saturday Challenge for you, which is
Yep! It's time to look out those Christmas stamps and papers if you haven't done so already :-) The only rule is that we would like to see a Penny Black stamp or sticker somewhere on your creation.
This week we have a fabulous Christmassy prize for you from our regular sponsor - Dick at PB Stamps.
It is this gorgeous cute PB stamp - "Happy and Cool".
The DT have been as busy as Santa's little helpers, weaving some Christmas PB magic ... so please do pop over to their blogs for a look see. And don't forget to check out who won last week's prize .. there were as always some wonderful creations for last week's challenge and not a dropped stitch in sight !!
Here's my card - I thought I would try a "highlight" image, though if I'm honest when I come to look at it, this particular image doesn't have enough colour contrast to make the most of it ... but I was carried away by the nestie shape which I thought looked quite like the carolling sheets.
Main image: Penny Black "Carolling hedgehogs" which was an RAK:
Sentiment: Craftwork Cards "Oh My Words" (I seem to be really into these at the moment!!)
Supplies: flowers & leaves from Prima "Christmas bubble"; Papermania pearl brads & red gemstones; paper and ribbon from my stash.
Tools: Nestabilities curved rectangles.
As always we look forward to seeing your creations - hope you all have a great weekend, and a good bank holiday if you're here in the UK .... fa la la la la ...la ... la ... la ... la !!
