I am back!

Good morning!

I was naughty these last few days but I had so much stuff I had to do after work everyday that when I came home I was just too tired to get on to the computer, but I have done everything now so I am back!
You are probably wondering what I have been doing.....over the weekend I went to this wedding anniversary (which will be a separate blog), Monday afternoon I had to have my car serviced, and on Tuesday MOT and car registration ( that is something like road tax in your country!) of course everyday it is hard work at the library ( that will be going on at least till the end of May!) It is 5.30 when I am writing this so I must be mad! 
Still I am up, I've got my cuppa and if all goes well I will have 2 or 3 posts done by the time I go to work!
So to start with Nr. 1 I have a card a just managed to make inbetween all this madness. It is for 2 challenges Penny Black Saturday Challenge (they want monochrome brown)
Card Patterns (sketch)

So this is my card: 

I usually use brights or pastels for Penny Black but this one is quite dark...the papers are all variations of brown although looking at these photos the DP (Rayher) looks a bit reddish. Anyways I used a Penny Black stamp, colored the image with Copics  added a bit of Stickles too. I stamped the upper bit of the card with a swirly stamp (Scrappy Cat) and Versamark ink, the flower was colored with TH inks vintage photo and spiced marmalade, twine and a brown My minds eye button! Huh! I think this post is finished , stay tuned for the next one folks!
