Simple Penny Black Card

Today I am trying to be creative after a bit of a week.  Printer errors turned from bad to worse and lead to eventual replacement, not great when you are a tutor and exams are a few weeks away.  Added to that Mum had to go to X-ray - 2nd week running and I am tired so getting organised is a struggle.

Anyway I want to start my creative session with something simple - a single layer card using  a Penny Black stamp - the challenge is your favourite - one favourite - joke!  This stamp I just had to have so it is definitely one of my favourites.  Today I stamped it in Memento Express Truffle and added coloured with Gelatos and a finger or two - messy but fun!  A simple border using my Scorpal and a sentiment from Marks Finest Papers.  Done!

I am entering this one in the May Penny Black challenge and in the One Layer Simplicity challenge too.

Have a great weekend.
