Penny Black Saturday #8 - NO PINK!!

Waddya mean NO PINK!!??? Another panic at first from the challenge at Penny Black Saturday. Again I say OMG NO PINK?? Then I remembered that not that long ago I hardly used pink in my cards at all and used to love brown and cream tones. Of course since the addiction that is Tilda (and all the other stamps that this "cuteness" led onto) pink is a bit of staple colour these days!

This gorgeous Penny Black stamp has been coloured with Promarkers (are you fed up with them yet?). It's the first time I've had a cream colour (Vanilla) that actually showed up - let alone that I've been able to shade with. Fabulicious! The paper is K&Co Wild Saffron and the sentiment is Penny Back too.

It's my 37th birthday today!!! OMG how did THAT happen?? I've been completely overwhelmed by all the beautiful handmade cards and well wishes I have received. I will get around to photographing and displaying them probably tomorrow. Much love
