Out to Play - whoooo hoooooo!!!!!

Hiya everyone, thanks for stopping by.  I've had some time FINALLY to have a long overdue play in me craft room - very therapeutic it was too after all the trouble we've had recently with Ethan at school - must do it more often lol.

Anyhoos, I had an overwhelming desire to fall back on me old favourites - Penny Black.  These little darling never fail to make me smile and get me creative juices flowing!!

 I even found inspiration to work with YELLOW, a colour I REALLY struggle with!!  I'm quite chuffed with how this one turned out.  The papers are from a Bo Bunny pad, I coloured with promarkers and did the sentiment on my laptop after faffing about with different fonts.  I may not get in me craft room as much as I'd like these days, but I certainly HAVEN'T forgotten how to faff pmsl.

I'd like to enter this card into the following challenges..............

Penny Black Saturday - Spring into Spring
C.R.A.F.T. Challenge - Easter / Spring
Cute Card Thursday - Spring Fever
Allsorts Challenge - Springtime
Simon Says Stamp Challenge -  A Bit O' Green
One Stop Craft - Spring

Thanks so much for stopping by, I really do appreciate it.  I'm hoping to get back in the craft room on Tuesday and Wednesday - my days off this week - CAN'T WAIT !!!!!!!!!!!!!

Take care and happy crafting.
