Penny Black Saturday on Sunday #200

Good afternoon everyone, and welcome to the new Penny Black Saturday Sunday Challenge lol!! Yes I'm rather behind this week ... had a bit of a crazy week at work and also it was my birthday on Friday, so I had a night out in the week courtesy of my darling husband to see Dancing on Ice live - fabby!  Thanks very much to everyone who sent me cards, good wishes and little gifts - I was really thrilled!

As I'm so behind I'd better get straight to business, and this week our challenge is a regular monthly feature 


and we would like you to CASE this gorgeous card by Jenny

How adorable is that??

We have two fantastic prizes this week as usual for randomly drawn winners - as I'm running so late pelase check the main challenge blog for details.

The rest of the DT have worked their magic as usual .. this is what I (eventually!) did ...

This is a get well / cheer up card for my godparents' daughter. She sent me a folded piece of paper for my birthday rather than a card, as it turns out she is housebound due to having recently fallen and broken her hip. 

I went with Jenny's idea of an easel card although I always have terrible trouble taking a  decent photograph .. hope you can get the general idea!

Stamps: Penny Black "Hedgehog Bouquet" (1444K); Whiff of Joy sentiment;
