  12. ooo... I love brown, there is just not enough brown papers in the market. Would have definitely bought some brown papers if papermania did a capsule collection of brown. Your card is absolutely stunning as always, and i am afraid you have got me absolutely hooked on Penny Black.

  14. Great card Kath. Hope I can get some time to join in this week. Last week just disappeared! Need to do a birthday card for my soon to be 18 years old nephew. Not quite sure where to start lol!!

    Hope you had a great day with your little ones.

    By the way I can't help thinking that Buddy must be planning a giveaway if he's rummaging in your stash. What a naughty boy!!
