Penny Black Monday

To start my long post is my Penny Black Challenge Easter card, as you can see I've used Hedgie balancing on an Easter Egg, the papers are the sparkly SEI. I've used prismacolours pencils and sansador. Yesterday I sat colouring images at the Mychett crop rather than scrapbook but I found it was taking longer to colour because of all the chatting.

Below are all the cards I made at the Glitter Pot on Saturday, the classroom there is so lovely and it was brilliant to see Francoise again. And yes some Penny Black stamps came home with me, along with a new small Tote bag from Papermania, I love that it has a zipped top so when I go out crafting with Sis all my stuff won't fall out.

She does like leaving a white border round her images when she cuts them out and because I don't like doing this I found this very challenging. I believe the papers are doodlebug but don't hold me to that.


I love these cats they remind of the china cat you used to be able to buy with random bright colours. Don't you think that the spotty paper is fun, we made that with some hole punches and used dabbers and inkpads, it made me realise that I'm such a lazy crafter who just grabs the nearest pattern cardstock rather than try and make my own.
Back later to let you know whose home the Gorjuss girls are going to.

Looks like you had a fun day Debby. I too am lazy with my backgrounds and to be honest rarely think of making one up myself.

Great PB card by the way.
