Penny Black 52

I'm under orders to rest after collapsing this morning and eyesight going a bit AWAL ....... most inconvenient as I'm already running behind with the weekends challenges so posting up what I have done and afraid the rest might have to wait a day or so ........ if I'm honest I've been trying to pack an awful lot in the last couple of weeks and this is the way my body usually reminds me that I have to slow down otherwise my MS gets the upper hand ....... but not if I can help it.

I managed to get round to Saturdays Penny Black challenge which is "Blooming Gorgeous". My image is Penny Black 3645K stamped and embossed simply in versafine black and clear embossing powder. The swirls around the edges of the card are Inkadinkado 97632 stamped in Brilliance rust and the image and flower embellishments (cut from another stamping of the main image) has been coloured with Marvy pens. The leaves are cut on Cricut Storybook, inked with Brilliance Thyme and embossed with detail clear and florist stamens added to the flowers. I used Tim Holt antique linen to shade the edges.

Hi Brenda

What are you up to young lady? Less of this "drawing attention to yourself" by collapsing!!

Slow down a bit and make sure you take care of yourself a little more.

Your Penny Black card is wonderful by the way!

Love Jules xx

Oh dear Brenda, now you know where your Mojo went, the MS hid it! You know your bodies limits please stick to them or there will be points on your crafting licence ;-)

Love the colours you have used on this card and the images are so lovely - as you know right up my street! Thanks for the very kind generous comment you left at my little place.

Take it easy - hugs
