I adore the cute images of Penny Black. I have used my latest addition to my stamp collection. I got my ribbon on sale(YES)a whole roll for 50 cents, and I thoroughly enjoyed the colouring in, it was so much fun!

I was restrained in the sales as I am supposed to be reining in my spending a bit this year but I did still treat myself to a set of clear stamps - Penny Black of course!!

Lovely cards by the design team.
