Penny Black Saturday #154 - Doodlebug!

Hi there and welcome to another Penny Black Saturday Challenge. Loved all your fabulous girlie creations last week - don't forget to check the main challenge blog to see if you have won a prize :-)

This week our challenge theme is


We would like to see some doodling on your project :-)  You can interpret this however you fancy, so long as you submit a new project featuring a Penny Black image, large sentiment or stickeroo as its main focus.

Again we have two fab prizes  for randomly drawn winners this week. Firstly we have a prize from Penny Black Inc.

which is this adorable hedgie stamp

and secondly we have a prize from The Ribbon Girl

which is this yummy selection of baker's twine and button twine.

So .... time to get doodling!!

My first reaction to the thought of doodling was eek! Not really my forte, but you've got to have a go haven't you?? Here's the result of my efforts ....

I specifically chose this stamp as it is my all time favourite PB (I think the snoozing bear is just so adorable! ... to the extent he is in my blog header lol!!), and this month's Penny Black at Allsorts challenge is to use your favourite Penny Black stamp.

Main image: Penny Black "Dream A Dream" (3615H), coloured with Promarkers and Copics, and decorated wtih silver gems and lilac doodles;
Sentiment: Penny Black "Birthday Dreams" (3849E);
Paper: Papermania "Forever Friends - Spring Time";
Supplies: flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts; gems, ribbons and peel off from my stash;
Tools: large circle and lacy circle nestabilites; Martha Stewart "garden trellis" edge punch; small butterfly punch.
