Penny Black Christmas

 First off I must apologise for Mr Virgin who now claims that I do indeed have a problem which will be fixed in 48 hours so we will wait and see. But it does mean this has to be a quick post cos I don't know when my broadband is going to disappear again.
This is my Less is More card this week in fact I blame the challenge for this Penny Black Stamp its not usually my style but I had seen stunning cards made with this style of stamp.
The challenge this week on Less is More is to chose three previous challenges, I have picked.
Off the page week 6 which was going to be my image but I couldn't bring myself to do it so I settle for snowflakes going off the page.
Use the colours of your Countrys Flag week 27, which in my case red, white and blue.
To use Ink week 28, I was going to use a brayer but that one went in the bin so I settle with inking with a blending tool.
I think she works better on a tall card although now she floating!
Just what to thank you for the lovely comments and wishes and fingers crossed for normal service to resume soon.
