Up bright and early...

....well early anyway! The weather may be bright (for now with fingers crossed) but I am feeling rather groggy with a rotten, croaky throat.

Chris left at around 5.30 this morning as he has a meeting in Ferndown....so like a MAD,MAD woman, I got up with him, put on the dishwasher, washing machine and had a cup of tea and rather than go back to bed and make the most of the children being asleep....I got up and finished making a quick card for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge. I don't have that many Penny Black stamps...YET...but I do have two old ones that I got from another crafter a good while back! Yes more stamps that have sat in a drawer for years before I was confident enough to try basic stamping!

LOL...I think this stamp is great for men's cards and it fitted the sketch lovely.

Better make breakfast now, I have a busy day; going to the garage with my dad to get his car checked out, then lunchtime I have an appointment at the Opticians with Amelia.
