It's been a while...

... since I made a card using a Penny Black image so here's one I did following the sketch at Penny Black Saturday Challenge...

I bought some Stickeroos a while back and thought I'd use one... saves time colouring (I was a bit pushed for time as I wanted to get the card in the post)... the red paper is from Papermania, it has a linen effect, the blue paper is from K & Co. The sentiment (which is one of my faves) is a stamp from Penny Black.

Well, finally it rained here... I've been virtually doing a rain dance for the last fortnight... in the UK it never stops raining and here in the centre of France it never starts! You should see the state of my lawn... well it looks more like dust with straw on it! I've given up even trying to make it look half decent! No I'm not crazy wishing for rain, but being English I do like to see a green lawn! Pity we couldn't do an exchange!
