Morning! It's Penny Black Saturday :)......
 We have a fab sketch by the lovely Nat to follow this week ~
I rotated the sketch and used the adorable Betsy Bluebell transparent set for the image. I have coloured as always with promarkers and prismas in pretty pastel shades.......I think I must be wishing for spring :)
The papers are from an old Forever Friends pack.
There is a fabulous prize of 4 rolls of ribbon of the winner's choice to be won this week from Fantastic Ribbons:)

I am entering my card into the following challenge ~
Simon Says Stamps - Use 3 papers.....I used 1 paper to mat and layer the image :)

Another short and sweet post.....sorry! Been busy with my mum who has been up to visit this week........time to go home today :( but we've had a lovely week, shopping, gardening, baking!!!

Thanks ever so much for looking xx
