Best Friends at Penny Black

Happy weekend everyone and a three day one at that. It's the event of the year tonight, the Eurovision Song Contest. Terrible songs, terrible costumes, excellent TV! We are having a Eurovision party with the family. Fish suppers, a little drinkie and a bit of a sweepstake for fun.

Today also brings a brand new challenge at Penny Black. This week the theme is...
'In the Garden'


Well, I didn't have an original idea in my head, zilch, nadda, nothing and the deadline for my Penny Black card was looming. I must have 'gotten a whiff of my Mum's anaesthetic and it's numbed my brain. So, in times of crisis, I trawl the blogs and lo and behold I found this. I didn't mean for my card to turn out quite as much like the original but everything was so well placed that the flowers and ladybirds didn't look right if I switched it around.

For my card I have used a stamp from the PB transparent set 'hugs' and coloured with watercolour pencils. The papers are by MakingMemories.

We hope that you can join in this week, pop over to the Penny Black Saturday Challenge for some gorgeous inspiration.
