Where did our Summer go??

There is no sign of Summer here, I hope you are getting a bit of sunshine where you are today. My daughter went to London Zoo yesterday on a school trip and came back absolutely soaked!!

Today's card is for the Penny Black at Allsorts challenge which is flowers. It's a long time since this stamp has seen any ink,  but it's good to feel insired by old favourites sometimes don't you think? I always use paper piecing with this stamp I don't seem to be able to get the desired effect by colouring it.  I love this quote stamp by Penny Black too, it's one I use often.

Papers are by My Mind's Eye (still my favourite company for papers), stamps by Penny Black, more of my favourite wrinkle silk ribbon and pins are both from Pretty Little Ribbon Shop.
