Penny Black Wk 175

A quick post from me before my 2 little granchildren arrive for the 24 hour weekly stop over. Have had a couple of difficult days and am exhausted in every sense. Anyway l am a woman on a mission to get ready for the christmas fayre in just over 3 weeks and have approached a local company for any help/support they may be able to offer and am over the moon that they are happy to help - more news of that another time. Martin House Hospice are sending me some posters so l can make people aware of where the proceeds are going.
Today l have made some small boxed sets of quick and easy to make notelets, l used craftwork cards 12 cm blanks (love these as they are a beautiful white and good quality) from one of my Goody Bags and stamped them with the delightful Silhouette Pocket stamp set from SU. I made boxes to put them in, bit of ribbon around and make nice little gift sets.

My card today is for my daughters birthday tomorrow. I adore this stamp Penny Black - Acrobat coloured with copics. The challenge over at Penny Black Saturday Challenge is a sketch by Nat.

I am entering this into the following challenge Penny Black Saturday Challenge wk 175 - Sketch
Thanks for stopping by x Susan x
