Penny Black Saturday Challenge & an Update

Wanted to take part in the Penny Black challenge blog this week and the theme for week 103 is "in the garden". If you would like to take part hop over HERE to be in with a chance of winning a 15% lifetime discount voucher at P B Stamps and to join in the fun.

Here is my card; 

Im sorry i have not been around for a while but i have been going through some personal crap which i am not going to bore you with but has given my mojo a bit of a knocking as i have not had the time to do much.

The hedgies, the field mouse, the fox & the stray cat is still around & being spoilt by me! little Minnie has been back a couple of times to visit although she must have a nest elsewhere as she disappears into next doors garden. Lola is definitely a "Lola" as i managed to gently roll her slightly to her side the other evening to take a peek and im 99% sure that it is her inhabiting the cabin at the moment. I am keeping everything crossed that hoglets are on their way!!!

Will be back very soon. Have a wonderful bank holiday weekend everyone xxx
