Penny Black Bee happy

Had a wonderful weekend stamping and colouring the new Penny Black stamps i bought from Shamela in Cape town.

The weather here is beautiful, early spring sunshine which is not as harsh as the summer sun , not the right weather for sitting inside however much you love carding , so I took my Copics and images outside and coloured away.
Later I made a few cards... yes a few.
This time I took a different approach and made cards and looked for challenges later.
I see quite a few of the teams are complaining that cards did not meet challenge criteria so i was super careful when choosing the following challenges for my rather sweet (me thinks card )
Firstly a new for me challenge at Fab N Funky  the theme there is what 'eva"and Penny Black at Allsorts has their September theme as Punch Away . As I do not own a border punch yet I punched circles and halved them to make my scallops and I used the Flower punch I won randomly from Lynn in Australia (take a peek at her creations they are wonderful ).

I also followed the sketch at the Annabelles Stamps blog (more from down under ) and a great challenge site ,and lastly if I get a move on Animal crackers is the theme over at a Spoon Full of Sugar .
If you like my card let me know .
I love comments.
Have a great week all.

    A great creation.

    Love that cute little image which you have coloured so perfectly and your use of the circle punch for making that scalloped edge is such a good idea.

    Great layout.
