Penny Black Challenge #28 - Multi Fold Card

Well the year is nearly over, and so there is just time to squeeze in one more Penny Black Saturday challenge before the start of 2009. Thanks so much to everyone who joined in last week's recipe challenge at what is such a busy time of the year ... we loved looking at all your entries .. you were all really "cooking with gas" LOL!! Don't forget to look in on the challenge blog later to find out who won last week's fab stickeroo prize.

So onto this week's challenge which will be the last one for 2008. We are having a little festive break next week, but will be back raring to go with new challenges from Saturday 3rd January 2009!! For those of you who can manage to squeeze in a little crafty time, this week's challenge is to make a

multi-fold card

We have another great prize on offer, donated by the lovely Kath.

For anyone who isn't yet aware, Kath has just been voted Cardmaker of the Year (yes, that's right!!) in Simply Cards & Papercraft magazine. Woo Hoo!! Many congrats to you Kath - very well deserved. I would highly recommend anyone reading this to pop along to Kath's blog to view her fab range of cards - not only PB's of course but many others as well.

As usual the DT have been busy as bees and have come up with some fab sample cards ... please do pop over to their blogs to take a peek. Unfortunately naughty disorganised me hasn't managed to make one this week, but rather than be a total disappointment I thought I'd share with you "one I made earlier" .. (ie a LOT earlier fact slightly before I started this blog!! LOL!! )

Although this is an example of my "earlier work" I've always kinda liked it ... hope you do too!!

I used: images are Penny Black "Dream a Dream" (sleeping teddy), "Polka Wings" (butterflies) and "If.." (teddy with balloon). All are coloured with watercolour pencils and Twinkling H2O's. Sentiment is by Hampton Arts; paper, sparkly gems and ribbon from my stash. Sparkly flowers are diecut using Cuttlebug "Hippie Chick" alphabet set.

So it only remains me to wish everyone

Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year

... look forward to seeing you all in 2009.
