Birthday Bunting

Hello Peeps, hope you are having a super Saturday so far.  The glorious sunshine of yesterday has given way to clouds and rain but I don't mind, I'm still having a good day!

Before I get to my card for today, I have some special thank you's to say to the following wonderful friends (in no particular order): Helen, Samantha, Kaz, Jackie, Pauline, Cynthia, Alison, Zippy, Debs and Kay for your gorgeous birthday cards - they are all on display for everyone to see and I am so thrilled to have received each and every one.  My thanks also to Chrissy, Marianne and Lisa for their sweet birthday wishes.  You all really know how to make an old girl feel very special!

PENNY BLACK SATURDAY CHALLENGE have a real summery feel to their challenge this week with the theme of Bunting - and I think there is a particular stamp set that is going to take a real hammering - I've used it too!


Oh I do so love Penny Black hedgies, this one is Hedgy Delivery and is one of my first ever PB stamps (worryingly I can remember the first time I used it too - so the memory hasn't gone completely, even at my age, lol).  Coloured with Copics (yellow bicycle - well it is the Tour de France!) and teamed with a mixture of PaperMania Capsule papers and some from scraps box.  Bunting is of course Hero Arts, as is the main sentiment.

Hugs, Sxx
