Penny Black Saturday # 68 - Colour Challenge

Good morning!

I had a chance to play along with the Penny Black Challenge this week and it's the first time for ages! I made a thank you card for Kath after receiving my gorgeous parcel of candy...... thanks so much Kath, I love everything as you know!! The colours are fab to work with - chocolate, lemon and pink, YUM, YUM, YUM! I don't think I've combined them before but they work beautifully.

I want to say a huge thank you to everyone who stopped by to congratulate me on my DT post, it means so much. I am catching up with my blog hopping slowly but surely and have managed to play catch up with a few DT projects so I'm feeling much happier now....... still uber manic at work though!!!

Don't forget to visit the Crafty Calender Challenge tomorrow for it's launch...... this has been created by my gorgeous daughter Georgia and I'm so proud of her! I am homoured to be a guest designer for the very first challenge so I'll be back with my card in the morning.

Card ingredients:
Papers: Kay&Co
Image: Penny Black
Flowers: Prima
Leaves: Woodware Punch
Border: Martha Stewart Scallop Dots Punch

Thanks so much for stopping by today, have a good one!

TTFN and TFL xxx

Hi Tara. This is Pam. Your fellow design team member at Pixie Cottage. I just stopped by to get to know you a little bit and to say hello. When I get time I will come back and look at your lovely blog closer. I had to laugh at your profile when you were talking about going to bed and gettin up in the morning with ideas buzzing in your head. LOL. I am glad I am not the only one like that.
I look forward to getting to know you better and working with you at Pixie Cottage Stamps. Your work is just beautiful.
