Hanging On


Found out yesterday that 4 year old son has chicken pox - oh joy, which means he will miss 2 days of nursery, as he won't be allowed back till next Wednesday,  fortunately at the moment it seems to be quite mild.

Todays card is very different for me and well out of my comfort zone - but it did give a good excuse to use a stamp that i have had for 18 months and never used (as i have never found a suitable sketch for it) - i know shame on me, but it was very reasonable as i bought it from Dick at PB stamps then had it shipped to my friend in Houston, when i was visiting her - Canny i hear you cry !!!

Hi Sam

Poor little stamp .. .. waiting all that time to be played with!! LOL!! I bet now you have used it you will be bringing it out quite frequently now. It would be great for Mothers day or Easter.

I love all the cutting out you have done .. .. you must have lots of patience.

Sorry to hear your Son has chicken pox. Hope he isn't too poorly with it.

Thank you for sharing with Penny Black at Allsorts this month.

Love Jules xx

I love the colour combination Sam. Purples and Green's always seem to go together.I am unfamiliar with this Penny Black image and it is so cute. You have coloured and layered him up beautifully.
Thank you for sharing your lovely card with us at Penny Black at Allsorts and good luck in the challenge.
