Penny Black Frogs


This cute stamp is by Penny Black, as it's a 'busy' little image I kept the card quite simple, and immediately thought of this sentiment stamp that I have had for ages. The frogs were coloured with prisma pencils and a goo gone pen, and a layer of glossy accents to add shine. The background was cuttlebugged with swiss dots.


So we saw the doctor today, and have the all clear to fly home. Small problem, the airline said they couldn't fly us back (without a huge price hike) until, wait for it, December 25th. So I put on my well rehearsed wobbly 'oh no I'm going to burst into tears' voice, that I have perfected over the past ten days, and they relented and gave us a flight for next tuesday. Which brings me to the next little episode of having to unpack all my carefully stowed crafty stuff again, well, I can't sit around and do nothing for a week can I?

Fantastic card!!

Love the wobbly voice story!!! Hopefully they will never learn that if they keep saying no, you are not going to burst into tears but probably scream and shout, lol!!!
