I Do love my Penny Blacks - they were my first rubber fetish lol,  last week l won the challenge over at the PB Saturday Challenge and this week it is another great challenge spots and stripes. For those who know me well most of my cards feature spots, l don't why they just do x My daughter asked me to make her a card for her Dad, mens cards are not the easiest to do but this gorgeous new stamp from the London collection was introduced to the ink pad this weekend. I watched the tut on criss cross cards over on Bev Rochesters blog and thought l would give it a go......

Hi Susan

Fabulous card.

Love the little tag you have added.

These new PB images are gorgeous. Have resisted so far but not sure how long I can hold out .. .. and then there is the dilemma of "which to choose". Oh it's not easy loving rubber stamps is it?!?!?! LOL!!!

Hope you are having a good week.

Love Jules xx
