Friday Sketchers # 55 & Penny Black # 52

I'm so pleased to report the sun is back with us after a day of thunderstorms yesterday. It's school sports day for Sophie today so lets hope the sun continues to shine! She is doing the obstacle race and the mixed flat race and she's not at all happy she's running with the boys lol!

Today's card is for two challenges, I've not combined any challenges for a while but these two were crying out to go together. The first challenge is Friday Sketchers and the second challenge is Penny Black with a theme of Celebrations to celebrate their first birthday. I've rotated the sketch as it fitted my image better this way round and the PB image has been coloured in with promarkers, cut out and mounted on some 2mm 3D pads. The design papers were a RAK from my gorgeous blogging buddy Jill...thanks Jill they are just perfect for this card. The ribbon, flowers and brads are from my stash and the spacers are from Poppicrafts. The greeting is a Letraset rub-on. Thanks for stopping by today, your lubberly jubberly comments are very much appreciated :)
