Penny Black 171 Down on the Farm.

Hi everyone I seem to have been a bit MIA this week again. My arm took a turn for the worse on Monday and I had to go to the doctor. My boss very kindly said I could close for half an hour. I couldn't even bear to drive so I walked to the surgery. Guess who got soaked in a shower on the way back. I was glad to get a prescription for strong painkillers and anti inflammatory tablets. Problem was I had to drive there, only a few miles but I was past my best by the time I got there. Not a lot of fun trying to change gear when your arm doesn't want to move and certainly not without a lot of pain. Never mind I'm a lot better now and I was quite keen to make a card when my friend came over yesterday.

I used :-
Image :- Penny Black - Woolly Dames.
Colouring :- Promarkers.
Background :- Distress Inks using the baby wipe method.
Fence :- Tim Holtz die.
Trees :- Hero Arts.
Buttons, pearls and twine from stash.

I was inspired by Kath who has made an amazing card for the Penny Black challengewhich I'm hoping to enter. This week the challenge is "Down on the Farm" so I think my dancing sheep fit that. The only thing is that I'm a bit worried that Kath is going to think I've completely copied her card. I've tried to do my own thing so I hope it's ok!

I'm off to think about my DT card for Totally Gorjuss. We have a new challenge every week so I hope you can join us.

Thanks for looking and I'll try to do some catching up later!
