Y is for Yellow

 Hello and thank you for visiting me

I'm sharing a card I made for one of my colleagues who became a dad for the second time at the end of October. I made this card for the office to send to them.

Dusting off my Penny Black Stamps

Hello everyone. 

So after months of nursing my old laptop along (I have had more blue screens than I ought to have had recently and having to plug it in all the time wasn't really all that conducive to portability) I have finally bitten the bullet and replaced it. Hopefully (and don't hold your breath Kath) this means that I will be blogging a bit more often, well that's the plan anyway and I have certainly made plenty of cards that I can share. So let's get on with it (and thank you for sticking with me so far).

Today I am sharing a card commissioned by my lovely neighbour for her sister, the brief was that she lives on a farm. I immediately thought of one of my favourite Penny Black stamps and this is the resulting card.
