Penny Black Challenge

This is my card for the Penny Black challenge this week

The papers are K & Co and as the challenge is recycling I recycled this bit of hessian which came with a present and I clung onto it as I knew I could re use it- can't even remember now what the pressie was but the hessian is super

Had all intentions of doing this card yesterday but as I was doing housework I thought... my, this bathroom looks a bit shabby and before I knew it that random little thought had grown arms and legs and there I was paint brush in hand painting away all afternoon, so the bathroom is now a bright springy yellow!It was a random colour as much as a random thought.

Forgot before going to bed to change my clocks even though I had the thought in my head all night and when I woke this morning I thought oh good lots of time to watch telly and drink coffee before getting on with things, only realised when it got to ten o'clock but it was actually eleven, so been chasing my tail ever since

Off to get some DT work done and maybe even another challenge card

Hope you are having a wonderful weekend
