Penny Black challenge....

Its great to get back into my craft room having been away for a few days.....my MOJO seems to have left me today but that might be because we had some bad news last night to say one of our friends had passed away....
Anyway back to my card, over on the  Penny Black challenge the subject for this weeks card is Fussy and Fancy.
I've used the Butterfly Kitty stamp and coloured it using pencils and chalks. Backing paper is from S.U.  Punches used are Martha Stewart punch used across the middle, S.U. label punch, dies used are Marianne Creatable leaf die and Cuttlebug corner die.  Flower from my stash.

THanks for looking

Anne

A lovely colour scheme here and that image is great (must get more PB stamps!!). I didn't realise you had that leaf punch - I love it and the other punching too.

What a great colour combination for this card Anne. I'm with Val; really love the leaf die - it's really effective just with the flower heads.

Hi Anne, I was wondering how you were when I noticed you hadn't blogged for a few days. So sorry to hear about your friend, life can be very sad sometimes. Sending you a hug.

What a lovely card though, I really like how you've put the little flowers on the leafy die cut. All very pretty with the blue and yellow too. CoB

Sorry to hear your sad news Anne - its nice to have a crafting distraction at times like this isn't it. Your mojo is very evident in this card - its lovely - Lottie my cat likes it too (or maybe she just wants to play with my fingers on the laptop but she's certainly looking....)

So sorry to hear about your friend. We've recently lost several family members so I know how tough this can be.
Certainly am enjoying your beautiful card with that wonderful leaf die. One of my favorite color combos too.
I'll be back to crafting soon & haven't forgot your Bow Easy. I'm sorry I've been so slow about getting it to you.
Hugs,janie
