Penny Black Saturday Challenge 18 meets Basic Grey Challenge 6 via Cute Card Thursday!

Well, it's the weekend again, so that means craft time - yippee!!!
The theme for this week's Penny Black Challenge is 'Thanks a Bunch'. I chose to combine a couple of the stamps from the 'Critter Party' set for the main image. The paper is by Basic Grey (Phoebe 'The Presidio'), the sentiment stamp is from the 'Anytime Messages' by Hero Arts, and I've used my 'D'vine Swirls' embossing folder on some of the background cardstock. I think I must be psychic or something, as I've gone for one of the colour schemes for this week's Basic Grey Challenge (Green & Red) without realising, and also just popped over to Cute Card Thursday to find out what this week's theme is...to discover that I've got that one ('Buttons and Bows') covered too! I should really start checking out all of the challenge blogs before I get crafting!
