Nap Time

Hello to you all, well I am so very happy , I took delivery of three Penny Black stamps today, my very first ones and they are gorgeous. Secondly I have found, thanks to blogland, a fabulous craft shop right on my doorstep!!! so to speak.I paid them a visit today and got myself some goodies, and will  be going back real soon .
Well surprise to say my card today uses a Penny Black image and it is for the Penny Black Challenge who are looking for an "Indian Summer".  The backing papers also have spots and stripes for A Spoonfull of Sugar and I have also made it look Vintage/ Shabby Chic for Passion for Promarkers and CES for "Animal Antics"I do hope you like it.xxx

The recipe for my card is
Image-Penny Black "NapTime"
Medium- Promarkers
Backing paper- Pink Petticoat and Cosmo Cricket
Pin- Posh Pins
Doily-Marianne Die
Gems and cord- my stash
Sentiment LOTV
Lace-Wild Orchid Crafts
