A cosy basket....

Morning Folks!
It's a very happy post from me today and not just because it is Saturday!
I am very pleased to announce that I have joined the design team over at Penny Black Saturday Challenges - the perfect place for a PB addict like me and perhaps an excuse to add to my collection, not that I need much excuse! 
Love my fab new badge:
The new challenge is just starting over on the main blog, as usual ANYTHING PENNY BLACK GOES
The optional 'Extra' challenge this time is to 
Nice and easy, I reckon! I don't think there are any card makers that don't have a pile of scraps and offcuts that they can't bear to throw away!
Here's my card, apologies for the poor picture quality but it was really dark and gloomy when I took these photos before popping the card in the post. The stamp is a new one from the 'Man's Best Friend' set which I got for Christmas from my sister. 
The scraps making up the background are a real mixture of DCWV, Dovecraft, First Edition and Crate Paper. They are all edged with Versamark chalk ink which I find helps to cover up any small gaps when sticking the squares together.  The ribbon is also a scrap, there wasn't quite enough to wrap across the whole front so I cut it in half and lined it up, covering the gap with the image. Frugal or what??! 

As usual I used promarkers to colour the dog and finished with a Stampin' Up sentiment.

I do hope you'll pop over to the main blog, just click on the picture below, to see the fabulous cards from the rest of the design team.
