Penny Black Saturday #174 - Too Cute To Spook!

Woo hoo! ( or should I say woooooooh!!) It's Saturday, and that means that it's time for another Penny Black Saturday Challenge! Thanks as always to everyone who joined in last week's challenge - adorable entries as always!

It's coming up to that time of year when ghosts and ghoulies are out and about, so we thought we should have a theme to make you hide behind the sofa ... but then we decided to be kind so this week's theme is

Too Cute To Spook!

So it's time to bring out all those cute Hallowe'en stamps and take them over to the dark side lol!

This week's prize is this totally adorable and apt stamp - "Frightful Flight"


Don't forget to be eligible for this bundle of cuteness you should submit a new project that features a Penny Black image, large sentiment or stckeroo as its main focus.

The other DT ladies have produced the most adorable selection of not-at-all-scary Hallowe'en cards ... here's mine.

I do struggle a bit with Hallowe'en cards as I don't have a great many supplies (3 stamps to be exact, and no specialist dies or punches) ... so I tend to keep them simple. But as luck would have it, earlier in the year I spotted this scrumptious paper in a nearby craft shop and just knew it would be perfect for a Hallowe'en card - I was well chuffed!! :-) The paper is double sided, so I used the plain side as my outer square and background stamped it with a rather large PB spider's web!  I don't have any Hallowe'en sentiments, but luckily I had this one stamped out from last year, sent to me by the lovely Domi!

Stamps: Penny Black "Witchy Mouse" (2253K), "halloween web" (3902K), "Trick or Treat.." (1906E);
Media: Copics (fur), Promarkers and Flexmarkers;
Papers: The Robin's Nest;
Supplies: pearls from The Hobby House; sparkly lace, ribbon and spider's web peel offs from my stash.
