Yellow Bouquet

Hello friends,

Today is bitterly cold in Pretoria and the only warm, sunny spot is in front of the window in my craft room, for sure the best place to be! Hope you are enjoying what you do whether it is warm sunny weather or in the grip of the Southern Hemisphere’s winter days. It feels like ages since I last coloured a Penny Black stamp and they are my favourite stamps! Well, yesterday I dug through my storage bin with PB stamps and this card is the result. Oh dear, I love that cat with his adorable smile so much. I decided to do a “yellow” card for a change as I am stuck on pinks lately.

Challenges:

 

A peep at the inside

The adorable Penny Black cat

    A truly adorable card that must be bringing that wonderful sunshine though the craft room window. No wonder you chose yellow for the warmth and depth of your sweet card. Gorgeous details, dies, and coloring. “Hugs”
