Penny Black & Sunday Sketch and Stamp

Morning everyone! Hope you're all well. Has anyone done their Xmas shopping yet? I haven't even started yet but the Xmas spirit is definetly warming up!! I'm back with a two in one challenge for

Sunday Sketch and Stamp - Sketch

and

Penny Black Saturday Challenge - Christmas for the Guys

I've thoroughly enjoyed this challenge! The sketch is fab and I've used one of my most favourite PB stamps (but I do have a few LOL!). I love working with this image and it never bores me! It does lend itself so well to this challenge and reminds me of the dodgy knitted jumpers my bro and I used to receive from certain aunts in the 70's!! Gosh I'm showing my age - ahem, swifty moving on

I've layered snowflake stickers, colouring one in with a permanent black peeloff marker. On top of this is a black punched snowflake, all topped off with a silver brad!

RECIPE

Love this fun card, reminds me of the sloppy Joes Bill Maynard made famous, but that was in the 50's!
