Penny Black Monday

I hope youve all had a super relaxing weekend.  
Life here at 197 has been desperate.  Amber's got a tummy bug so she's been starved as Im desperately weary of cleaning her dirty crate :( 
Ive made a stock of fish and rice for her poorly tummy - she tried her first few tablespoons and Im still desperately trying to remove rice grains from crevices in places I didnt even know she had after she hoovered it up :(
Im losing a battle between my CISS and new printer and am still desperately trying to remove yellow ink from my hands :(
So there we go, I had a super chillaxing weekend!

Here's a little card I made using an image from a Penny Black multiple sheet (I hadnt quite realised how much smaller the images are on these multi sheets) coloured with PM's, I used up scraps of Pink Petticoat bp's and a little sentiment by Craftwork Cards.

Id like to enter this card into the following challenges
Crafty Creations - Valentine
ICS - sketch
Penny Black and more - Love and hearts (thanks B for the tip!)

Brilliant card Keryn. Sorry to hear you've been through the mill this weekend. Hope things improve soon. Hugs x

Just to say thanks for your lovely and kind thoughts Keryn.

And it might bring an even wider grin to your face if I tell you they each have a goody ball - just like the ones hamsters have with little treats inside, but much much bigger with mint licks inside.

Sorry your little Amber is poorly, they do pick up these bugs and it's very difficult feeding them at these times.

And of course your card, it's lovely, a gorgeous PB image and I think it also fits our Penny Black and More theme.

Ah poor Amber and poor Mummy for having to clean up after her:( Loving your gorgeous card, those images are small but great for smaller cards and tags. You could enter this into Crafty Ribbons this week too:)

Wow - such a lovely card Keryn & I see you love red spotty dots too!

Thank you for allowing me to join in & such a lovely welcome to the Christmas Card Club, I really look forward to learning from you & your card making gals..

I answer to anything along those lines Keryn, so happy that someone added a message!

I am a scrapbooker & a card maker & really cannot get interested in the new craze in Oz of mixed media - I adore it, but just another expense I do not need! So there will always be pages & cards on my blog.

I hope your little Amber is feeling much better by now, & is happily running around with a smile on her face.

Thank you again, oh quiet one!

I love the boldness of this card, the papers all go together so well, and the touch of softness with that punched border - fab.
