Penny Black Saturday #112 & Sweet Stop Sketch #67!

Hello!! I hope you all are well! I've not been around this week as I've been sunning it up in Ibiza! We went for 4 days for a wedding of some friends of ours and it was amazing, such a fun and memorable day! Such a beautiful island and not at all what I thought it would be like! Here's a little piccy of me and the bride, I know she occasionally looks on this blog so I'll just pop the one up!
Gorgeous! (her and the beach - not me!) We got home at 3 this morning hence the lateness of this post! It's my Double DT Saturday! Firstly my card for this weeks Penny Black Saturday challenge which is Ready, Steady, Cook! The recipe is - 1 circle, 2 papers and 3 flowers! We'd love to see what you create! I've gone all christmassy this week for some reason! The flowers started out white but I coloured them with my Copics to make mini poinsettias. I hope you like it and can join in with us!

And now here's my card for this weeks Sweet Stop Sketches challenge! See, I'm very festive, but who could resist this little stamp! I'm really pleased with how this came out, I think it's the colour scheme on these beautiful papers that I like best - and of course a bit of Kraft card! Thanks for dropping by, I hope you enjoy the rest of the weekend!
