Happy 2009 and Getting Back to Cardmaking With the Penny Black Challenge

Hello All and A Happy 2009

I haven't done any cardmaking for quite a few weeks now and so I haven't had anything to put on my blog. I found my way back into my craft space in the loft on Sunday afternoon and after leaving the heater on for a few minutes to warm it all up and get the blood flowing decided to do the Penny Black Challenge to ease me back in nicely. I think I had too much else going on before Christmas (you know how it is)new job, present buying, decorating the lounge before I could even think about the tree,shopping and more shopping. So anyway back to it.

The Challenge was to use Pink and Brown colour scheme along with any Penny Black Image. I stamped the mouse in Versafine vintage sepia twice,I coloured one image with Copics ( I did get some for my Birthday- yummy yummy)cut it out and layered onto the other image which I had stamped onto a nestability oval. Added ribbon,sentiment, paper flowers and pearl gems. Layered onto larger oval nestability and stuck onto card covered in pink backing paper.


Thanks to everyone who dropped by in 2008.
It's good to be back and looking forward to sharing in 2009,
