Spring Penny Black

Phew I thought that I wouldn't be able to post today, after moaning at Sis about her really slow PC yesterday, mine this morning has given me nothing but a headache but I think its OK now.

I had a fabulous day at MJ crop on Saturday just need to tweak the layouts I did and on Sunday Jake was happy to let me colour images in providing a sang nursery rhymes and let him watch Barney a very odd looking purple dinosaur but after the numerous repeats of the programme I was ready to do something really nasty to him, the dinosaur not Jake.

So while the PC was trying to do something to sort itself out, I put this card together, the image was already layered so I just had to put it together although the paper I coloured the image to match was too large a pattern and didn't work so I used those fab paper from My Minds Eye. Punched flowers and the Martha Stewart punch to bring it all together, hopefully it looks spring like for the challenge on Penny Black Saturday Challenge and although I've brought some similar stamps this one is another 50p from the sale at Christmas.

50p from a sale at Christmas??? Wow what an absolute bargain! Would have been rude not to pick that one up.
Love your card Debby and your gorgeous bargain image. My Mind's Eye papers are so lush. They have such a fab tactile quality to them.
I know what you mean about Barney. My 9 year old loved to watch and sing along when he was younger. My poor 3 yr old twins haven't discovered the delights of Barney (I wonder why ;o)
Glad you had a great time at the crop. I would love to join a regular crop one day, I never do enough scrapbooking.
Hugs
