Yay - I've had a little play

Can you believe it - I have been having withdrawal symptoms from crafting - I kid you not. I have been wanting to get into the craft room soooo bad and today I finally did. And this is what I whipped up:

This is this weeks entry into The Penny Black Saturday Challenge, which has the theme of Pearls & Lace. I have cheated a bit today however as I have also used the sketch from over at Sketch N Stash for my inspiration. And as I haven't had much time I thought I could kill two birds with one stone (poor birdies' - what a horrible saying really) and combine the two challenges. I don't normally do that but it was the time thing.

I have used one of my old favourite Penny Black Stamps called Angel News (isn't she beautiful) coloured with my trusty watercolour pencils, a large section of lace for the background (I had this given to me ages ago by a lady who thought I might use it - Thank you very much!!!!!!) then my Martha Stewart heart punch and a fiskars border punch. The background bazzill and the ribbon is from my bits and bobs stash box - you know the one - where little left over bits and pieces are just too good to throw out. And then I have finished it all off with some pearls. 

This is the sketch from Sketch N Stash that I have followed. I didn't think it needed any sentiment or flowers.

This is my inside view.

And here is a close up of the detail.
Anyway I hope you like it. I am off now to go pack my port for my next little trip tomorrow. This time I am taking my computer with me, to keep my occupied so I will be around to stalk all of my favourite blogs.
Talk soon
