Penny Black Week 70 - Buttons & Bows


Hi Blogland, I hope you are all chock full of mojo and madly crafting. I am afraid I had a bit of a rest yesterday and didn't do a lot of blog visiting amd commenting. I will try to catch up.

My granddaughter, Ellie, came for a visit and wanted to make cards with grandma. We had a great time making a halloween card that she took home for her mummy.

I made this card for the Penny Black challenge. The theme was "Buttons and Bows" and I chose a Christmas card as a basis. The image is Penny Black's "Wishes for Kisses" coloured as usual with my Copic Ciaos. The papers are Colourful Christmas by My Mind's Eye. The buttons and ribbons are from my stash. The sentiment is from one of the new Christmas sets available from Suzette over at Crafty Sentiments.

I hope it brings you a wee bit of Christmas cheer and that you will leave a comment or two. Reading them is one of the highlights of the day.
Hugs,
Fiona x
