Going Back To My Roots :)

Picture 005c copy copy

Morning loverly peeps and hope you are all OK xxx

Today's card is sort of going back to the style I used to do all the time which is fairly plain, with simple lines and not much in the way of embellies. Of course the old fave glitter and ribbon are still there – but then they always were lol!!!

The card is for this week’s Simon Says Stamp Challenge which is this fab sketch by our very own Domi

… and it’s just the sort of layout I like so  I will use this again for sure, thank you Domi xxx

As usual Heidi will be giving one lucky entrant a $50 voucher to her FANTASTIC Simon Says Stamp Superstore !!

If you get a sec, nip and check out the NEWEST stuff on the All New Just In Page

This week the Design Team have all used Penny Black stamps and there is a mahoosive selection to choose from in the store :)

So this is what I did.

I used this old fave Penny Black stamp of mine – Bee Costume – which I LOVE and I coloured it with these Copics -

BV23, C00, C1, C3, C5, C7, R00, Y03, Y15, Y17, Y38

It’s a doddle to colour as well :)

Punched flowers with a bit of doodling – oops sorry, you can see the big blob of  glue trying it’s best  to hide and not doing a very good job of it :(

Slap dash Phillips strikes again lol!!!

So there’s the old card done :)

Very much the old Dawny style I think but there’s nowt wrong in a bit of retro every so often …. and sadly I have plenty of retro to choose from!!! This was one of them cards that the more I looked at it, the more I like it – doesn’t happen often cos it is usually the other way around!!!

I am still hurtling round at 90mph as most of us who work in the finance sector are at this time of year (almost the end of the tax year) so it’s another quickie again. I’ll be back tomoz with my LOTV card so I’ll see you then but in the meantime, have a fab day and huggiest of hugs to all xxx
