What A Let Down :(

Picture 003 copy

The parachute jump didn't happen.

But more of that in a sec. 

I haven’t done a Penny Black Saturday challenge for ages and ages and as it’s all about ‘checking it out’, I thought I would  and well, how could I resist a bit of gingham!!!

I really do love this image – it always makes me smile – but I’ve had it for ages and cannot now remember where I got the stamp from – grr!!! But you can get a great selection of Penny Black beauties from Tracy at Dies To Die For.

Picture 002 copy You can also get your Copics there as well, which is what I’ve used to colour this. I am really loving these pens now.  One or two mishaps on here but I’m getting there :)


The papers are a mixture of Funky Fairy gingham  and the gorge new Lots of Dots from Liz at Pink Petticoat. And of course, I had to chuck a bit of Martha in as well :) The ribbon was lurking about at the bottom of my ribbon box.

Picture 004 copy And there’s the old card.

So as I said, the parachute jump didn't happen because of the low cloud – totally out of anybody’s control. We sat there from 8am until almost 2pm and then one by one, people started to re-book so we did the same. It’s now on for the 17th but I felt sorry for Emma as she had geared herself up for it. But there was a big part of me that was relieved!!!

Never mind.

So we got home eventually, only to find that my scheduled post hadn't happened either, so I was ever so late with it yesterday.

Never mind again!!!

And it’s a quickie today cos I am putting the kitchen back together after it’s makeover. It’s so nice to have it all clean again. Have a great  Saturday and I’ll see you tomoz for another helping of Anya.

Hugs to all xxx

Hi Dawny. Great card. Glad you are enjoying your Copics.Thanks too for recommending Pink Petticoat. I bought their papers and made my DT card for Totally Gorjuss with them. Bought the stamp from LOTV at NEC and coloured it with Copics too. What do you think?
Thanks for all the inspiration you give
Love Sarah XXX
