Lazy Summer

I coloured this image Penny Black some time ago with Aquamarkers and found it when I was looking for something else- which is usually the case!  It fitted rather neatly onto a flat - but looks layered - card panel from Cuddly Buddly - its part of a download collection which is available here.  I printed it onto smooth white card and then added the strip of ribbon - really quick and easy!

Great for sending through the post!  Lets hope the British summer turns out to be better than it currently is!  Having said that, I've managed to get 4 loads of washing on the line today whilst I've been working from home!
