Penny Black Saturday / Singalong Saturday

Good morning and thank goodness it is the weekend. The rain has finally stopped and the sun is back out again. Thankyou for your lovely messages after my post yesterday - they really do mean so much. Mum doesn't want us to go up today, she is with some of her siblings and they are all looking after each other. I might just have to go up anyway tomorrow despite what she says, it is only a few hours drive and we don't mind at all ... will speak to her tonight and see how she is.

So here is my offering for this weeks Penny Black Saturday Challenge........ we would love to see you make something Soft and Sweet.
It is up to you how you interpret this, just remember to include at least 1 PB item on your creation.

I have chosen this super sweet image and coloured it with my prismacolor pencils and added a little sparkle with my sakura stardust pens. I have used these gorgeous soft pink papers from the Bearly Mine Design CDs for the front and inside of my card.

Another easy insert, Donna's discs are just fabulous! Please pop over to the PB blog for details of our sponsor this week and to see the gorgeous cards by the rest of the DT.
Image: Penny Black 'Poppy Fields'
Papers: Designer Inserts Extreme by Bearly Mine Designs
Flowers: Poppicrafts
Tools: Circle Nesties
Embellishments: Raffia, pearls and brads from stash.
Now I really wanted this medly today in memory of my uncle Nigel but could not get the version I wanted (the one from Meet Joe Black) so opted for this one. There are lots of images here that are sure to remind you of things and people in your life. We are always wanting something but I would love for you all to take 5 minutes to be grateful for what you have already. Have a loving weekend
