Penny Black Saturday #75!

Morning everyone! Thanks for all the gorgeous entries into last weeks Lyrics theme - there were some fabulous cards and I was singing along to them! This weeks Penny Black Saturday theme should come in quite handy, Christmas for the Guys! I can't quite believe I've made a Christmas card with no glitter or gems! :-) I thought I'd go for a very manly blue and grey theme, the Doodlebug paper was my inspiration for that, and I paper pieced the snowman onto a grey sky - much more British don't you think?!
1-2-3 Stitch are offering one lucky entry a $20 voucher for their online store, even more reason to join us! The DT cards are stunning as always and we've still got the lovely Debby with us with a 'Moo-tastic' card! I hope you all have a great weekend - if a little damp, it has not stopping raining here in the last 2 days! Oh well, more of an excuse to stay in and craft! Thanks for dropping in!
