Penny Black Paper Patch Puss!

Afternoon all, pheeww what a scorcher!  It's our next-door-neighbour's twin girls birthday party later and we have seen a succession of young ladies arriving already - neighbours have warned us that they are getting the pool ready so it might get a bit "screamy" later!  Yep, looking forward to that ........!

Anyhoo, over at PENNY BLACK SATURDAY CHALLENGE the theme is Paper Patch.  "Ooh" says me "I can do that", and I did, but it took a lot longer than planned but never mind, done now, and here it is -

I've used Tulip Jungle for the image, coloured with ProMarkers.  The papers are three sheets from the Dovecraft Back To Basics collection, all cut into neat little squares (!) for my quilt.  Yellow and purple mat card is from DCWV Neutral Stack.  Sentiment is a-la-squirrel - I think it is the sort of thing Vince would say if he was popping out of the tulips!

Hope you are having a fabbie weekend - don't forget to slip-slap-slop!

Hugs, Squirrel xx

Hope the pool party doesn't get too noisy! In this heat, I'd be tempted to jump in with them!

I love this cat! Never seen it before, so I guess I am not a real Penny Black addict yet... I am thinking about investing in some promarkers: what do you think of them?
