More Lovely Penny Black.

Good morning everyone. First of all I'd like to say thank you to everyone who left a message after I told you about the loss of my beautiful chocolate Labrador, Maddy. I'm going to miss her very much and you've all been very kind to me.

Anyway enough about me. I finished this card last night but waited for daylight to take a piccie of it. I love this image, it's very quick to colour and really cute too.

I used :-
Image :- Penny Black.
DP :- MME signature Christmas.
Colouring :- Promarkers.
Snowflakes and snowflake border :- Martha Stewart.
Sentiment :- Craftwork Cards.
Jewels :- Hobby House.
Lots of lovely glitter!

This fits a few different challenges :-
Cute Card Thursday :- Anything goes.
Penny Black :- Favourite things - Penny Black image, Martha Stewart punches, MME DP, jewels and glitter!
Secret Crafter :- Sparkle and shine.
One Stitch at a Time :- Favourite colour, usually lilac but I love blue for Christmas cards.
Creative Inspirations :- Anything Christmassy.
Penny Black at Allsorts :-It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas.
Gem of a Challenge :- Sketch and non-traditional colours.

Think that's all for now. Best get some DT commenting done and think about next week's cards.

  1. Hi Kat

    I am so sorry I missed that post and am only just commenting. The tears are flowing at this end and I send you huge hugs. I'm an ultimate softie as well when it comes to animals.

    It brings back so many memories, we had to make the awful decision several times in the last few years and it really is the hardest thing ever.

    Sadly with labs it's a common complaint and they seem to get it quite young, but as our vet always reminds me, it is our final act of kindness to remove the suffering. But it's not easy to accept it at the time I know.

    On to your card, a lovely piece of work, thank you for sharing it with us at Allosrts and Penny Black at Allsorts.
