Let Sleeping Dogs Lie! PLUS WOYWW

Morning all.  Having reduced my DT workload, I've now time to indulge myself when I craft and have dusted down my long neglected old favourites, Penny Black!!  It's like finding a long lost friend lol.

I've created this to join in with the Penny Black Saturday Challenge, which was one of the first challenges I used to join in with regularly when I was a newbie blogger.  Now its a monthly challenge I plan to join in more often again. The August Challenge is "Double the Trouble" in which two PB images are required.

I'd also like to enter this into the following challenges.......

Everybody Art Challenge - Anything Goes
LEJ Designs Challenge - Anything Goes

I'm off to work after posting this and as its still early, young Harley dog has trudged downstairs with me, half asleep and joined me on the sofa......

Doesn't he look cute when he's asleep........wait an hour or so and he'll be tearing around chasing cats, playing with Emily and Ethan and getting into all sorts of mischief, the little minx!!

Also, for the first time, I'd like to show you What's on My Workdesk (WOYWW)

I've a pile of old papers I'm trying to use up, some plain card and some images I want to play with over the next couple of weeks - yes thats right - I'm REALLY back rofl.  I did give it a tidy last night as the children are using it later whilst I'm at work.  They want to decorate the door hangers I got them from Hobbycraft and my BIL will be in charge so I dread to think what it will look like tonight when I get home lol. 

Enjoy your day whatever you're doing and thanks so much for popping by, I really appreciate it.

Happy Crafting
