Penny Black Challenge #82 ...Happy New Year - Celebrate!

Happy New Year everyone, and welcome to a whole new year of Penny Black Saturday Challenges! I hope you have all enjoyed the Christmas period, and are feeling refreshed and ready to go :-)

This week we have a challenge for you in keeping with the season, namely

Happy New Year - Celebrate!

As always you can interpret this however you want, so long as you include a Penny Black stamp or sticker somewhere on your creation.

This week we have another great prize for you from our regular sponsor Valentine's - a £10 voucher to spend in the onnline shop - yummy!

Do pop over to the challenge blog to see if you have won the last challenge prize, and while you're there don't forget to check out the gorgeous samples from the other DT members + this month's fab new guest DT member - Joey

Here's my card ....

You may notice that it doesn't actually say "Happy new Year" on it as I only ever send one New Year card, and as I had already sent the recipient one a couple of years ago with this cutie PB image on it I thought I would make this card suitable for either New Year or some other celebratory occasion! But in any event this li'l mouse is corks -a- poppin' so I hope you get the general idea lol!

I would also like to enter this card for Charisma Cardz' first birthday challenge - celebrations! They also have a fab blog hop going on over there - well worth a look!

Main image: Penny Black "Bubble of Joy" coloured with watercolour pencils;
Sentiment: See-D "Celebration Messages";
Papers: Basic Grey "Two Scoops";
Supplies: Prima flowers; spacers and pearl brads from The Hobby House; ribbon recycled from some Laura Ashley homeware packaging;
Tools: Martha Stewart "scalloped dot" edge punch; leone Em "Ash Branch" punch; large classic ovals and large classic scalloped ovals nestabilities.

Looking forward to seeing all your creations!
