Penny Black ~ Blue Christmas

Good morning

Well it's another gorgeous day here today.  We have loads of meat left over from last night's BBQ so think we will be firing it up again this afternoon.  Got to make the most of the sunshine! 

I was up bright and early this morning so after I had let the dog out and had a cup of tea I decided to make a card for the Winter Wonderland challenge which is a fab sketch by my blogging buddy Marianne.  I found this cute Penny Black image which I had coloured last year but never got round to making it into a card.  I have recently started to colour my images with Copics but this one has been coloured with Promarkers because I didn't have any copics then.  At the moment I can't make my mind up which ones I like best but guess it's okay to use both :-)

Image ~ Penny Black
Papers ~ Forever Friends
Sentiment ~ Papermania

Thanks for taking part at Winter Wonderland this week Lisa. A gorgeous card in such contrast to today's weather with those lovely snowflake brads and chilly feel to the card. I think the flowers definitely add something to the baby card. Marianne x

Hi Lisa

I'm impressed seeing you get Christmas cards made so early, I need to take a leaf out of your book and might avoid my normal December panick.

A great card anyhow.
