Penny Black Saturday #108 and some news!!

Hiya! This is a bit of a long'un so I hope you're comfy! I hope you've had a lovely week! I've had a crafty week but not card making; I've been making some bunting! It's so pretty! I've almost halfway through so I'll pop a picture up when I'm done if anyone is interested!
It's time for another Penny Black Saturday Challenge! Yey! This week, especially for our American friends this weekend, is Red, White and Blue! And funnily enough, nearly all of us have gone for stars and stripes too! They just go together I guess! And to celebrate our new sponsors Penny Black Inc, we have 3 of the gorgeous new Mimi and Bluebell stamps - cute, as a prize! We also have a 4th prize for you, a stamp of your choice from Stampers Supermarket - more than enough reasons to enter!
Here's my card which also uses this weeks Cupcake Craft sketch, it's a great one! I am actually really pleased with this card! It just all seemed to go together easily! The gem swirl I made using a Bazill template - such a good invention! And the stripey paper was made by using 2 different size Pink Petticoat stripe papers and layering them over each other in my graphics program. I hope you like it!

Stamp - 'Cinnamon' by Penny Black
Colouring - Copics
Papers - Pink Petticoat & Core'dinations
Stars - Dovecraft & Woodware punches & the large one is a Fiskars template

Sentiment - Personal Impressions
Gem swirl - Anita's gem wheel & Bazill template

And now for my news...I am officially a Sugar Baby!! The lovely Korin at Sweet Stop Sketches has asked me to be a part of their current Guest Team! Woo hoo! I love their sketches to I am chuffed to have been asked! Here is my first card for them, with another great sketch! And we'll be posting a new one every saturday! I hope you can pop over and join us and meet the new team!
I really need to get cracking with my Christmas cards so when this little Lili of the Valley sweetie accidentily fell into my shopping basket, I thought it would be a good time to use her on my card! I quite like how this has turned out too - shocking! So there we go, I hope you're still with me! Have a fab weekend!

Beautiful card and coloring, but what really made me laugh was the cat in the toilet. I thought that I was in my own bathroom for a second! What is it with cats and toilets? Mine also has a box fetish. It's great to be a Sugar Baby with you!
