Penny Black Tea Cosy

Hope you all managed some crafty time over the weekend. Today is definately Autumn - cold, damp and grey.  I had an early start this morning picking my sis up from the airport, a journey that normally takes an hour took two this morning with the heavy traffic and she was an hour early landing too, anyhow she is home safe and sound after having a lovely holiday out in Jamaica visiting her daughter.

Yesterday my daughter had a nosey in my craft room, her face was a mixture of horror and shock ....... OMG How many ribbons do you need??? You need to sort them l have and the pics are below.

On with todays card, l made this one for the Penny Black monthly challenge which for October is a sketch and it just happens to be my favourite layout too, l have not done one for this challenge since it went monthly - wonder if they have missed me lol x

Stamp - Penny Black Tea Cosy
Coloured with copics and prismas
Papers Kraft Card, Kaisercraft and papermania
Flowers, ribbon, brads, stickles

I can see we need to educate your daughter in just how important our ribbons are Susan, an awful lot is never enough. My youngest granddaughters eyes always light up when she sees mine and usually goes away with some in her hair.

Lovely card btw.
