Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Week 25

Good morning, woohoo it is the weekend at last - that makes me a happy bunny after such a busy week at work. Thankyou so much to every single one of you who entered last weeks challenge, it was great seeing all those funky christmas cards. This week we have a real challenge for you ...

No patterned paper!!!

Oh no, I hear you scream, is it possible???? Well I can assure you it is!! You really must see all the Design Team's cards for some real inspiration - I was blown away by them, they are stunning.

This fabulous embellishment caddy is up for grabs for one lucky person who enters this week. Tracie has very kindly donated this prize that she bought from Poppicrafts, oooh I wish I could enter.

Now, here is what I made. It isn't a card as you can see. Luckily for me this challenge tied in perfectly with the retirement of one of my colleagues. It was her party last night, after 25 years of service, and we all had a page in a book to leave our comments and words of love and best wishes etc. I 'kidnapped' the book one evening last week and this was my page for Shirley.

Here she is when she was given it last night - she was delighted!! It was lovely reading everyone elses memories and funny stories. I am sure she will treasure it forever.

Here I am (on the right) in a very blurry pic taken last night (loving the verrrry soft focus - hides all those fine lines haha)

.... and me again with one of the other nurses and one of the fab GP's

Hope you enjoyed the tour, lol, have a fab weekend :o)
