Penny Black Saturday #173 - On The Move

Good morning and welcome to another Penny Black Saturday Challenge. Thanks to everyone who rocked our age challenge last week - brilliant entries as always, and don't forget to check the main challenge blog to see if you are a winner.

This week's challenge is

On The Move

Perhaps you will want to show an image that includes transport (cute critter with cars, bicylcles etc!), or perhaps a card with a moving part - or even a New Home card. You can interpret the theme however you want, so long as you include a Penny Black image, large sentiment or stickeroo as the main focus of your new project.

This week's prize is an adorable PB stamp from our lovely former teamie Carole, called "Roses on the Run".

The rest of the team have really got moving this week go check out their lovely projects.  I felt as if I w as running along behind as I struggled a bit to work out what I would do (I don't have any cute PB critters in cars or riding bicycles!!). Eventually however I settled on a New Home card, and chose this sweet image of a hedgie peeping out of a plant pot which he has quite clearly moved into lol!  As it so happens a lady I'm friendly with in work moved house last week, so I was able to find a new & good  home for the card straight away :-). It now turns out that our teamie Beth is also getting the key of her new house today - that's either a spooky coincidence or synchronicity lol!

Here's the result of my efforts.

Stamps: Penny Black hedgies from transparent set "hugs"; LotV sentiment circle;
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers;
Papers: Prima "Botanical" (includes the sweet little postcard!);
Supplies: flowers by Sweet Lilac and Wild Orchid Crafts; pearls by Wild Orchid Crafts; key charm from Quixotic Paperie; lace and ribbon from my stash;

As you can see, having remembered I had these gorgeous key charms to give Nat the "key of the door" last week, I got on a bit of a roll and decided to give the recipient of this one the key of the new door!!
