Off to see the Oldies this afternoon (my loony parents) for a cuppa and then, HUGE treat - we're having dinner in the pub! Don't know why we don't do this more often really, it's only a 5 minute walk door to door, the food is yummy pub-grub and it's cheap. Funny how you get stuck into a routine and it takes dynamite to get you out of it. Anyway, my tum is rumbling already!
And so to my challenges for this card - it's Saturday so it just has to be my favourite combination of Sketch Saturday which is a fabbie sketch from Maya, and of course, Penny Black Saturday Challenge who are looking for Easel cards this week.
And here is my interpretation of Maya's sketch, which was perfect for turning into an easel card
I have used another one of my most favourite Penny Black stamps "Duckling" and coloured him/her with ProMarkers. I have kept the colours toned down so they didn't clash with these amazing "Wisteria" papers from Basic Grey. As luck would have it, I had coordinating BG brads so have used three of those for the easel stoppers. The pearls are from my stash. This only the second easel card I've made and, if it doesn't sound too arrogant, I'm really chuffed with it.
Thanks for popping in, I love having friends round to visit. I hope to be able to stop by and catch up with you all later on.
