Penny Black Saturday July Challenge.....

Morning! It's Penny Black Saturday and we have exciting changes over at the blog :)
We are changing to monthly challenges and we would love you all to join in the fun on the 1st Saturday of each month!
To celebrate, this month we are having a fun Blog Hop as well as the regular challenge :)
The starting point is of course the Penny Black Saturday blog and there will be prizes along the way, so lots of opportunities to win some fab prizes!!

You should have arrived here from Jacqui's wonderful blog.....if not you can always start at the beginning over at the Penny Black Saturday blog.......you don't want to miss anything!

Well onto this month's challenge ~
'Summertime.....and the living is easy
I have used this cute PB Bear called 'Raining Daisies'.........I couldn't resist using this cutie with umbrella as it's been a pretty soggy summer here in the UK so far!! I'd much prefer it if it was raining daisies!!
I have used a sheet of My Minds Eye paper in lovely summery colours and coloured the image with my promarkers and prismas.

I am offering this Penny Black Transparent set - Make a Wish - to one lucky hopper......
Just leave me a comment to be in with a chance of winning :) 
I will announce the winner on next's months Penny Black Saturday post! Plenty of time for you all to enter x

I haven't checked out the PB Saturday blog in awhile. I applaud the changes. Once a month gives us slow people a chance to play too! I love your sweet rainy bear image. Now I remember why the PB blog was evil-I always see images I must have. I really like this bear and yes, must have him! Great coloring and wouldn't it be cool to rain daisies?!!! Yeah!
