Sketch Saturday meets Penny Black....



Good afternoon peeps!

I hope you are well and enjoying your day today! I'm at work being a naughty girl, blogging when I should be pen pushing..... I'll get back to it as soon as, promise!
Just wanted to upload the card I made for Sketch Saturday and Penny Black. I haven't managed to join either of these challenges for a few weeks, been busy setting up my new challenge as I'm sure you all know by now. It's been so much fun :o)
Anyway, I'm pleased I was able to play along with these two challenges this week, even if I have had to combine them. Oh and I hope you like the sentiment, I thought it up all by myself. 'Get you' I hear you cry!! Just humour me, won't you, lol?!



Materials:
Image - Penny Black
Sentiment - Computer Generated
Flowers - Prima
Dies - Nestabilities Circle
Papers - Downloads from a blogging buddy
Colouring - ProMarkers
Stitching - Gel Pen
Embellishments - Brads, Buttons and String from my stash

I drew and cut out the hearts myself, just in case you were wondering....... you weren't? Oh, okay then, lol!

Don't know who I'm going to give this card to as I've already earmarked another one to give to my Chris. I'll just have to give it to my little man and then make another one for Georgia!
