Penny Black Saturday #114 & Sweet Stop Sketch #69!

Hi all! I hope you've had a lovely week! It's my Double DT Saturday post again (it seems to come around quicker and quicker!) I'm mixing it up and starting with this weeks Sweet Stop Sketches challenge, another corking sketch! I'm in full Christmas mode now so it's a very festive post! I've used one of Mo's gorgeous images, and this is one of my top 2 Mo's images (the other one is Not Even a Mouse BTW!) I just love the little carolling mouse at the bottom! I'm entering this card into this weeks Crazy 4 Challenges, er, challenge! It's to feature Music somehow, (I've just realised, both of my cards feature music paper and singing - ha ha!) I hope you like it!

Image - 'Singin so Beautiful' by Mo's digital pencil
Colouring - Copics
Papers - Cosmo Cricket 'Jolly by Golly'
Sentiment - Stamps Away
Holly - Quickutz die
Gems - Papermania
Border - Fiskars 'Threading Water' punch
Ribbon - stash

Now here's my card for this weeks Penny Black Saturday challenge, this week is 'Feeling Fruity'. Some of us found this a little tricky if we didn't have a fruity image but you could use fruity charms, papers or colours even! I was browsing through my images and found this little Partridge, complete with a Pear!
We have 2 prizes again this week, a $20 voucher for 1-2-3 stitch and an adorable little stamp from Penny Black so I hope you can join us this week!
I'm also entering this into a challenge, this weeks Cute card Thursday challenge which is Treemendous - using trees or leaves! My card has little leaves on it and even the word Tree so hopefully it counts! Thanks for looking, I hope you have a great weekend!
