Penny Black & More

This year has flown by and here we are December - not long now until the big man in the red coat and the white fluffy beard will be making his way down our chimneys. We are almost ready in our house - the trees are up, most presents bought and wrapped, a few mince pies in the cupboard, bottles of bubbles and gin on standby :) just need a few more days to finish cards.
Today sees the start of the new challenge over at Penny Black & More @ Allsorts and the challenge is
Traditional Christmas Colours
You can use any brand of stamp except digi's (digi images will not be eligible for any prizes) and the
 main focal image must be stamped, the design team have some stunning inspiration to share with you over on the challenge blog here, along with all the details. 
I have used this gorgeous Penny Black stamp designed by Mo Manning, is'nt she a darling - she reminds me of my little grandaughter Esther with her cheeky impish face.
