Penny Black Springtime!

I'm back and crafting again after my shoulder surgery - it went well, the physio's really pleased and I just have to wait til next Monday to find out when the surgeon will do the left shoulder, and go from there! I've actually quite enjoyed the time to do a bit of blog-hopping and seeing what everyone else has been up to!

Here's a Spring-themed card using Penny Black's "Seeing your face" image of the cute little hedgehog with a daffodil! I've coloured it with Promarkers. The papers are new - they are from the Papermania Lemon Sorbet Capsule Collection (as are the spotted mini buttons), the ribbon/bow are from the Sunshine collection - all things from DoCrafts goody bags! My favourite effect at the moment is to ink around the edge of the page to make it stand out a little bit more! The sentiment is from Forever Friends Springtime die-cut greetings pack.

Hi Esme

A gorgeous card with all that beautiful yellow and your cute image.

I hope this is a sign of the sunshine to come.

Great colouring and shading and the distressing sets everything off beautifully.

Hope you continue to do well with your shoulder. I wonder if it is better or worse to know what is ahead of you with your second shoulder? A mixture of the two I suppose.

Thank you for sharing with Penny Black at Allsorts this month.

Love Jules xx
