Penny Black Saturday Challenge is very challenging

For some reason I just cannot get my head around the sketch for this weeks challenge, see here, I've fussed and fumbled through a couple of layouts and have now given up in a huff. It doesn't help that it's based around a circular image, I don't have a diecutter and my freehand circle cutting is shocking.

So I then decided to make some Christmas cards. That was equally frustrating! I'm just not in the "Christmas Zone" despite there being Christams Puddings in Tesco already. Can we not get Halloween out of the way first? I am very uninspired today!


  1. oh I know what you mean about free hand circle cutting! I try and edge the circle with a line of gold or silver peel-off, or ink it like mad to hide my bad cutting!

  2. Good idea Lyn, I'm hopeless at circles too! Lol! Welcome to blogland, I'm a relative newbie myself, but it is terribly addictive!! Hugs, Ali x
