Penny Black Saturday #123 & Sweet Stop Sketch #78!

Good morning all! I hope you're having a nice relaxing Saturday morning! I'm sat here with a frothy latte and some fruit toast mmm! Firstly can I just say Happy 3rd Birthday to my blog for yesterday! I can't believe it's been that long - time flies when you're having fun! I've just popped on to show you these cards for my Double DT Saturday.
First up it's this weeks Penny Black Saturday and this week the lovely Debby has designed this sketch for us! It's her first sketch and she was a bit nervous about it but the DT had a great time with it, it's one of those ones that works any way round too! This week Carole is sponsoring us with the sweetest little Hedgie stamp up for grabs!
I've used my new Mimi stamp - she's so cute! This set comes with an adorable little row of penguins too! I'm entering this card into a couple of other challenges, firstly this fortnights Colour Create challenge which is Pink, Green, Cream & Frosted, check! Then this weeks Allsorts challenge which is a Bingo round! I picked the 3rd row down which was Pearls, Stickles & Ribbon, check! I hope you like it!

Now for this weeks Sweet Stop Sketches challenge, and it's also time for a sketch with a spin! The spin is Lots of Sparkle and playing along could win you some Sweet'n'Sassy stamps! The sparkle on my card might not be apparent but that's due to the rubbish light at the mo (I really need to get myself a better light - any tips would be greatly appreciated), but I've used spray glitter on the mulberry paper, Stickles on her bow and Sakura Stardust pen all over the bones and the lettering, gems, sparkly thread and Bazill Bling card stock - phew! I'm also popping this into the Stamp Something which is Halloween. Thanks for stopping by, I hope you have a great weekend!
