When You Get The Urge......

Hello peeps, how are we all today?  Squirrel Towers has been a bit out of kilter - after Church and a bacon sandwich, neither of us could settle to anything much.  We had a go at Lego Pirates Of The Caribbean on the Wii (my birthday present from Toad) and managed to finish the level we had previously been stuck on but once that was completed we called it quits.  After a lot of faffing about doing nothing, Toad announced he was going for a swim.  I guess it has nothing to do with the swimming pool being right next door to the Adnams Brewery Shop ...... anyway, I wandered out to craft space and suddenly had the urge to make a Penny Black card.

Didn't know what I wanted to do so I just furtled through the boxes of stamps until one jumped out screaming "use ME", so I did.


Ingredients for this card are:
Image Stamp - Penny Black Bunny Bath
Sentiment - Penny Black Some Bunny
Papers - Papermania Hampstead
Border Punch - Martha Stewart Daisy
Flowers - EK Success retro flowers with Card Candi centres
Colouring Medium - Distress Inks

And the challenges that I'm entering with it
PENNY BLACK AT ALLSORTS - August Challenge - Free & Easy

I'm majorly behind with my commenting and visiting again - I am so sorry guys, I will make it up to you I promise.  Thanks for sticking with me.  I truly treasure each and every kind word you leave me.

Hugs, Sxx

The long dark evenings will be back upon us before we know it so make the most of the summer!!!! Great card,love how the border punch works on the flowery paper,looks very creative ! Have a great evening,Julie x

What a great card. Love the color combo and that adorable image. Love the border punch on the pattern paper. I always use solid paper but this is so creative I think I'll have to give it a go.
Blessings Bernie
