Good morning all, mid week so soon. Leap Day today so I hope you're all ready to go down on one knee to those elusive men who are too shy to pop the question!!
Today's card is made using a Penny Black stamp which I got at the fair at the Trafford Centre the other week and I must say I am loving Penny Black stamps!!
Aren't they the sweetest girls? I really enjoyed colouring them in and followed the Penny Black Saturday Challenge sketch which I saw over on Kath's blog. It's so much easier when you have a sketch. I put butterflies on instead of flowers as I decided the umbrella was really a parasol lol! I have coloured the image with my Copics and Prisma pencil and a touch of Spica pen to the umbrella. The papers are Basic Grey called Hello Luscious with Coredinations cardstock. I have used Cheery Lynn French Pastry Die for the doily - what a fab die that is and cuts brilliantly, love it!! The butterfly border punch is a Martha Stewart and so is the larger butterfly, the smaller ones I made with a small punch which I have had years and years and recently rediscovered, how you do!! I would like to enter the following challenges:
Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Sketch
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Cheery Lynn Designs - Lots of Layers
Paper Creations Ink - Show us your style/Favourite Technique (Die cutting/Stamping)

Well the repairman for my fridge can't come until Friday. This is where I have the last laugh on my son (he sometimes reads my blog) because he was teasing me the other week because I have a spare fridge in the wash house outside. He was saying why on earth do you have two fridges and a wine cooler when there is only two of you? Ha ha who's laughing now Stephen!!
Thanks for looking and any comments you may leave, take care xx
