An old favourite!

Morning Folks!
It's a bank holiday weekend here in the UK and the weather forecasters are predicting it's going to be hot - amazing!
Bring it on is all I can say!! I need some decent sunshine!
I hope you have something nice planned for the weekend.

As it is the first Saturday of the month, a new challenge is just starting over at Penny Black Saturday Challenges and as usual 
The optional 'Extra' challenge this time is
Use Your Favourite Penny Black Stamp

Goodness me, I think this has to be one of the toughest challenges ever!! I mean really where to start - I have sooo many favourite PB stamps - I really struggled to choose. I must have wasted at least an hour trying to make up my mind. In the end I decided to use this little cutie:
The stamp is called Delights and I opted for this one because I think (??) it is the first PB hedgehog stamp I ever bought and my addiction has just spiralled from there! I love the simplicity of this stamp, which makes it suitable for lots of occasions.

Here's the card I made:

Card Details:
Penny Black 'Delights' coloured with promarkers
Embossing Folder - Crafter's Companion English Country Garden Collection - Delicate petals
Papers - Dovecraft Back to Basics Berry Blush and scraps
Sentiment - LOTV
Memory Box 'Pippi' Butterfly die cut 
Pearls, gems and ribbon from stash.

I do hope you'll pop over to the main blog, just click on the picture below, to see which stamps the rest of the design team used on their inspiration cards.
