Penny Black Saturday #113 & Sweet Stop Sketch #68!

Morning lovely bloggers! I hope you are all enjoying this crafting weather, it makes me not feel so bad about being indoors all day! It's Double DT Saturday so I'll start off with this weeks Penny Black Saturday challenge. We're hoping we can coax the sun out of hiding with an On The Beach theme! My lovely teamie Nat saved my bacon on this one and stamped up some of these fabulous images for me. It's quite a large stamp so I decided to keep the embellishments to a minimum. I've shown a close up picture because I've glossed over the shells, crab, drink and sunglasses and given the sea some glittery shimmer, but it never shows on pictures! And of course there's my staple Pink Petticoat papers in there too!
This weeks prizes are an adorable stamp from Penny Black and a stamp of the winners choice from Stampers Supermarket. The DT cards are stunning so pop over for a looksie! I am also going to enter this into 2 other challenges, this weeks Allsorts challenge which is Primary colours and this fortnights ABC Challenge which is August, I wish I could be swinging in a hammock with a cocktail now!

Now onto this weeks Sweet Stop Sketches challenge, I know I say it all the time but I love these sketches, I never have any trouble with them! And also on this card I get to show you my new beautiful papers! Pink Petticoat 'Vintage Rose', these are totally up my street! Very shabby chic, country vintage style! Although my photography is shocking so they're not shown to their full, gorgeous effect. I got the sewing machine to this card, it was crying out for it and I really want to see about printable fabric and make some bunting with these! I'm entering this card into this weeks Creative Inspirations challenge which is 5 flowers, 3 papers & 1 ribbon.
I hope you like it and can join in with us! Have a great weekend!
