Good morning everyone - wow it's February already, and as it's the first Saturday it's time for another monthly Penny Black Saturday Challenge.

So on to this month's challenge which is

Love & Marriage

It doesn't have to be a Valentine project specifically - any lovely-dovey theme will do ... so long as you remember to use a Penny Black image, large sentiment or stickeroo if you would like ot be eligible for this month's prizes.

And talking of prizes, as ever we have a brilliant selecion on offer this month.

$20 store voucher.

Please do check out the rest of the DT's gorgeous cards - here's mine.

My husband has already pretty much seen all of my PB cuties that are suitable for Valentine cards, so I decided to go for an anniversary card using this gorgeous image which was buried deep in my stash, sent to me many mooons ago by the lovely Squirrel.

Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers;
Papers: Docrafts "Vintage Notes";
Supplies: flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts; lace by Docrafts "vintage notes"; pearls from The Hobby House; twine and cheesecloth from The Ribbon Girl; heart shaped button and doily from my stash;

  2. Beautiful card, I love the stamp you have used, it always makes me smile. xx Flora

  3. Delightufl card Pauline, love that cute PB image.
    I spent all day Thursday setting up my "DJ Case Pro-Markers" after seeing yours, thank you so much it is fantastic and I can see all my colours in an instant. I used to get so frustrated before, just grabbing whichever colour came to hand, now it's simple, looks good too. Hubby recons I need another one tho' cos it doesn't hold them all!!
    At £15 it's worth it tho' as the crafters companion storage would have cost me £80.

  4. That is such a sweet image and looks fun to color!!
    Thank you for joining us at MAWTT!!
