PENNY BLACK Saturday Challenge

I am on Holiday for the next week or so, and i am hoping to have some time to join in with lots of challenges, even though i may be backtracking a little bit to fit them all in!! One that i do love to join in with however, is lovely friend Kath is on the DT and there is always yummy cards to ogle on a Saturday morning :)

I'm afraid my colouring is not too good on this one! i really must get some new glasses for this close work........i wear 1.5 for reading small print and for my craft work, but i guess i could now do with some stronger lenses as my fabby camera seems to show up all my mistakes!!

I've used two images from the 'fresh new day' acrylic set, they have such cute expressions and are quite comical looking.......i love them! No patterned paper today, just some lovely cardstock from DCWV.......i love this particular card, it's a nice weight and embosses and sands beautifully!

Main image.... PB 'fresh new day'
Dots... on heart.... Stamps by Judith
Watercolour pencils
Cricut... heart from scraps box 3.5"
Inks.... Adirondack,Archival, & ColorBox
Computer generated sentiment 'Bradley Hand ITC'
Ribbon from stash.

It will make a nice change to be away from the office......had a rubbish week last week with certain people making sarcastic & arrogant coments......have been down in the dumps most evenings and have not felt like blog hopping or anything else really :( I must catch up with you all later................bye for now and thanks for your visit ;-D

  1. You're card looks fine to me, cute stamp,

    Don't let other people get you down, I used to work with people like that, I think if they can't say anything nice they are not worth listening to, It's them that have a problem.

    Anyway have a nice break from work.

    Hugs Carol x

  2. lovely card Carol, I like the way you've cut the backing cards with different edges :o)

    hope you enjoy your week off and are feeling back to your usual self soon........I prescribe lots of crafting and blogging :o)

  10. This is just gorgeous Carol - great news about your holiday. Enjoy your week.
    As to the glasses - I got a daylight lamp for Christmas and it has a magnifying glass on it, which I thought was for embroidery and would not be used by me. HMmmmmmmm famous last words I use it all the time when painting images now - can't manage without it.

    Do enjoy your week especially the lead up to an exciting date!!!
