Spring around the corner

The last couple of days have felt very springlike here and hope you have all been feeling it too. I have not been around much this week as l feel l am having a bit of a mental meltdown at the moment and not been up to doing much. Yesterday l realised l had not done my Penny Black card and l so love my Penny Blacks - my first stamps were PB's so l suppose they were my 'first love'.
I have combined the sketch with a colour challenge and am pleased with the result and hope you like it too x

Just checked on todays Friday challenges and Mr RO picked my card for last weeks Crafty Catz I spy challenge - the blue tea party card which went to Jamaica on Monday with my sis who is celebrating her 50th next monday - she will be the same age as me for 15 days x

Stamp Penny Black Betsy Bluebell - coloured with copics and prismas
Paper, flowers, buttons, ribbon, brads all Papermania colour capsule collections
Dotty Paper - stamped.
Stickles (where would we be without the stuff lol)

I am entering this card into:-
Penny Black Saturday Challenge 190 - Sketch by Nat
Colour Create 91 - Yellow, Grey, Black, White & option of flower
Simon Says Stamp - Anything Goes
Addicted to Stamps - Birthday with Dots ( 2nd entry)

Thanks for stopping by and hope you all have a good weekend x Susan x


  1. Morning Susan - how's it going? Never asked how the Zumba went, how was it? Exercise is always good - might not feel like it at the time, but you'll feel good afterwards.
