Penny Black Challenge




This is another challenge that I haven't entered for a while, I often start cards, but don't get them finished in time, so even though its been a busy week, I was determined to finish and enter it. (Busy - Avril's definition - out with hubby on Monday, lunch and shopping with my friend Jean yesterday (got some really good bargains in the sales. Well a girl can't have too many dresses!) - and my son was coming for lunch today, so knew if it wasn't finished this morning, it wouldn't get done as 'craft buddy' Diane is coming over tonight!)

The challenge at Penny Black this week is a 'card buffet' pick 4 items. I have gone for - papers - ribbon - a charm and 4 gems (one of which is in the charm). I have used a sketch set by Debby a few weeks ago, its such a lovely one to work with (thanks again Debby). The image is 'Gift of Flowers' coloured with Promarkers and the papers are MME which were a freebie last summer with a card mag.

This card is also being entered in Oldie but a Goldie - Bright & Cheerful. I have had the stamp for about 18 months and the papers are from last summer!

Well that's it, must get the kettle on for Diane coming over.

Thanks for looking
