Evening all!

At 5.30pm this evening, our darling daughter asked "can I colour in some stamped images using your pens please, mum?". How could I refuse!? So I sat down with her, and whilst she was beavering away, I coloured in this Penny Black image ... and then decided to turn it into a card!

I followed today's Sketch #47 over at Friday Sketchers, and as I have used a Penny Black 'Easter' image I am also going to enter it into the Penny Black Saturday Challenge #43, which I'm just in time for (I hope!). And finally (phew!), this week's challenge over at Creative Inspirations is 'Scallops', so my scallop frame fits perfectly! Yay!

This is card is a little one (5" square) - I haven't used this size in ages, but the PB bunny would have looked a bit lost on my normal 6" square cards. I'm quite pleased with the vintage feel to this card, but I must apologise about the quality of the photo - my camera takes fab daylight shots, but I find that it's not so good in the dark with a flash! And the problem with using a flash is that it reflects every little bit of stray glue! Ahhh! Although you can't see it well, I have sanded the blue Core'dinations cardstock (backing the brown ribbon) and also inked the edges of the rose with a versamagic dew drop. *EDIT* I have now updated the pic to a 'daylight' photo!

Anyway, hope you all have a fabulous Easter and that you stuff yourself silly with chocolate eggs (I know we will! He he!).

Will probably not be back til early next week now!
Happy Easter!

Hugs, Sem x
