Penny Black

Where have the days gone again? I can't believe it's the weekend again already, I think someone is pinching hours from me!! Just a quick post today as I'm in mid preparation for a wedding fayre on Sunday and another one next Sunday. I meant to add this yesterday but got completely sidetracked and forgot all about it so I have a couple of bits including a challenge card to show (don't faint lol).

Items used
Image Cheesecake Party 1665K 
Papers and sentiments  Craftwork Cards
Large flower Sizzix Flower die #2
Pearls and lace from my stock 
Cord and sparkly bead Beads Direct
Please excuse my non cake decorating skills! Fiona was happy with it though as she hadn't had one at home so I told her I would make her one but it was a last minute thing so I had to use what I had to hand. :)
Paper - Free Romance from the Dreams Come True cd from Funky Hand

Now for the challenges entered
Penny Black Saturday Pearls and Lace
Mojo Monday Sketch
Di's Snippet challenge

While I'm on with challenges, there is still plenty of time to enter the Get Funky! challenge which this month is hosted by Allison and the remit is 

As always, Anice has designed a fabby freebie for those of you who would like to take part but don't have any Funky Hand products. Please show her some respect by joining in with the challenge if you download the paper, please don't just grab the paper and run :)

There is also still plenty of time to play along with Kathy's latest sketch at Kathy's Waffle Sketch File
Kathy's sketches are fabulous and they can be used in any way you see fit as long as we can still see the original sketch.

Whay not kill two birds with one stone and combine the two challenges. Don't forget to leave us a comment so we can drop by and leave a friendly comment on your work.

I'm now going to make a cup of coffee and start sticking diamantes on my new invitations.
Thanks for looking :)
