Penny farthing


I had this Dreamees stamp for Christmas and have been longing to use it and finally here it is. I stamped it with Memento Rich Cocoa onto some lovely linen card. The papers are First edition Man Made and I added some baker's twine and a die cut penny farthing using a Marianne die and sanded Core'dinations.

Sorry I've been a bit MIA of late; things were just piling up a bit! Anyway, I've enjoyed a scroll back through your recent cards and it struck me what a fantastically eclectic style you have - such a fab range of designs and colours - and all beautiful :-)
This latest design with the penny farthing is gorgeous too - love the colours and co-ordination of DP, stamp and die cut!
Big hugs, Kat xx

Hi Marianne, thank you for your kind enquiry regarding Stephen. He continues to progress well and is walking every day for a couple of hours now without his walking stick. He still cannot speak very well, he has lots of words but cannot put them into semtences, but his speech therapist tells me he is doing well. His arm is still paralysed, but he he starting to get little flutterings in his hand and he can sometimes get his index finger to move a tiny bit, so there is hope there at last :o)
