Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Blog Hop

~News Flash~

Starting today, the Penny Black Saturday Challenge is going monthly! There'll still be lots of fun challenge themes...and fabulous prizes...but you'll now have more time to play along.

To celebrate, we're having a blog-hop with our first monthly challenge...so there's lots of wonderful prizes on offer from our regular sponsors, some fabulous guest designers, as well as on some of the DT blogs too!

The theme of this month's challenge is:

'Summertime...and the living is easy'

I've used an old favourite stamp of mine...'Dream a Dream'...which I coloured using watercolour pencils. The sparkly papers are from the 'Isabelle' pad by First Edition. The pleated ribbon is from the Ribbon Reel, and the gorgeous flower embellishments and pearls were in the candy I won from Carissa a few weeks ago.


I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
 I have a mystery candy on offer for those of you who enter the challenge this month...so if you fancy winning a little surprise parcel, add a link to your PBSC entry to the linky below.



Ok...so now it's time for you to hop on board the PBSC Blog Hop bus...next stop...Jacqui!

If you get lost...you can find the directions, as well as all of the details of the prizes from our amazing sponsors over on the Penny Black Saturday Challenge.
