PB Saturday Challenge, My 1st EVER award & yummy blog candy!

When I saw this challenge here Penny Black Saturday Challenge I thought how easy is that! Then oh how I chortled to myself as every paper had a bit of blue in or how I automatically went for my blue watercolour pencil! I must admit there are some suspect blue dots on the background but they are actually more turquoise......I must be able to get away with them!

Now normal readers of this blog may need to have a sit down as "I HAVE USED MESSY INK" I know I know I'm one crazy horse! The backing paper is Basic Grey and the stamped image from the Bubbly Clear set. I have INKED the edge of the image with black chalk ink & then stitched it to the card using skinny wool (I'm sure there is a correct term for this?) in a criss cross stitch. I then used a rub on greeting onto a co-ordinating yellow Bazzill card stock then INKED around that too. No stopping me when I get started! Then finally I added an arrow which I cut using a QK revolution arrow die and 3 black gems in the top right hand corner. Not my normal style but I quite like it!

Well what a surprise yesterday! I received my 1st ever award.....Thank you Marcea ! Now I have to follow the rules....... hard work these awards...The rules:
