Penny Black Sunday

I'm still trying to make more manly cards and I'm not sure if it quite works, its finding embellishments other than flowers thats the prob. I fairly sure that this fab PB image works OK for a mans card, this stamp was out of the bargain box a few months back. The papers are My Minds Eye its a huge paper stack and these papers are earmarked for another card too. The sketch is from Penny Black Saturday Challenge designed by Domi and I had to alter the circles, two didn't work and I'm not sure three does either and now I'm not sure if works as a mans card now. Gosh I sound like a moaning minnie.

I would love this stamp from WOJ and I wouldn't have any trouble using that card pack either but in order to win this candy I have to let you all know its on offer at Rach's blog.

I had a fabulous day at The Craft Barn I do love the varied demo's and although I can't do arty I love watching it being created and I think we all brought Beatrice from Katzelkraft christmas unmounted rubber stamps.
Received a huge hug from both Sandra and Chris and they were demo their brand new stamps.
Chris had amazing cards and was interested to find she mainly colours with distress pad reinkers and Sandra had some fabulous cards with her stamps too, slider cards, pop up cards and all lovingly coloured. Daft thing that I am, I should have asked Sis to take a pic of us together why do I think of these things when we in the car on the way home.
We decided to have a Pub lunch which was a brilliant idea we sat outside cos it was lovely day. We arranged to meet FairyKaren and her friend so we were quite noisy but nothing new there.

I don't know about moaning Minnie Debby - indecisive sounds more like it to me - and believe me I should know. I'm useless at 'man' stuff - I've just lifted one image from a card and put a girly one on, couln't think what embellies to use for a male one (lol).
Having wittered on so long - I love this card and the image is delightful. Your circle 'flowers' are fabulous.
Glad you enjoyed your day at the Craft Barn.
hugs Heather xx
