Hello all, what a day! Think I need a stiff drink after the day I have had (pity I don't drink)! Well a little bit of relaxation now, and here is my Challenge entry for today... This Challenge is from Penny Black Saturday Challenge - No 11 "No cards Allowed". I have opted to make a little "Notepad", using Penny Black stamp "Hot but Cool" (3686K), which I have coloured in using my Art-Kure Watercolour Brushes, the front cover, and back covers have been covered with some lilac checked paper, and the Note sheets inside have been taken from Crafters Companion CD "Boys and Girls". The front of the Notepad has also been finished off with a few gems, and a paper flower, flower brads for the eyelets at the top, using my new toy, the "Croc-a-dile", and then White and Lilac ribbons weaved through the eyelets, to keep the whole thing together.

Happy crafting, and come back and visit very soon!
