Rainy days

Christmas is nearly here and we are so looking forward to spending quality time with our family back in Yorkshire.  I've still one or two presents to buy and then we can sit back a relax, the only thing that could spoil things is if it snows and stops travel so keeping my fingers crossed for trouble free travel.

The image I've chosen for this card is from Penny Black I just loved the detail.  I have to admit it's the only Penny Black stamp in my collection but I have plans to rectify that in the New Year  he he he.
I've chosen to use the sketch over at Pink Gems and coloured the image with Promarkers, the papers are from the Gossamer collection  which are beautiful, although as is the norm the camera always distorts the true colours. flowers and silk ribbon complete the card.  The challenge over at Penny Black is Beauty is in the eye of the beholder and to me this stamp is one of my absolute favourites and beautiful to boot.
Hope you like and thank you for stopping by

Hi Kathleen

What a gorgeous creation. I love this Come Rain or Shine slapstick stamp and the colour combo you have chosen in just perfect. Lots of colourway options with this one till you build your PB stock.

Hope you have a good time in Yorkshire and the weather does not delay you plans.

Thank you for sharing with us at Penny Black at Allsorts this month and good luck.
