Good morning everyone ... it's the first Saturday of the month, so it's time to welcome you to another Penny Black Saturday Challenge. Thanks so much to everyone who joined in last month's masculine challenge - don't forget to check the main challenge blog to see if you are a winner.
If you're anything like me, round about now is the time when you start thinking that over half the year's gone ... and what happened to the New Year resolution of making Christmas cards all through the year so as to avoid a last minute panic??
If that sounds familiar then this month's challenge theme is perfect for you ... yes, it's
Christmas In July
So time to get out those Chrimbo stamps and papers, and to start feeling festive!
This month we are sponsored by our regular sponsors
with a $20 store voucher.
In order to be eligible for either of these fab prizes all you need to do is to follow this month's theme and use a Penny Black image stamp, large sentiment or stickeroo as the focus of your project. Easy, right??
The rest of the DT have made some fabulous samples as always ... here is what I did.
A fairly simple card from me this time ... I have to confess that following from having needed to reschedule one or two things earlier this week, I ended up edging it in between watching the tennis !!
