Penny Black card and a Donna Downey stamp tag.

Good morning Lovelies.

I'm sorry I've been off the radar a bit lately but as many of you know I lost my lovely Step-dad, it was expected but we thought he'd get to the end of this month but fortunately for him he deteriorated rapidly. As tough as it's been I feel a great sense of relief, especially for my Mum, she is 5 years older than him and not in the best of health herself and nursing him at home for 2 weeks was far too much for her, he went into the Hospice on the Sunday and past away peacefully in his sleep and without pain in the early hours of Tuesday, so very fast.

RIP Dad.

I can't leave these beautiful Penny Black stamps and Dies alone, I just love them, I used watercolour card, stamped using distress markers, and coloured them in using Distress reinkers watered down.

My tag I used the gorgeous Poppy Stamp by Donna Downey which I got from Oyster stamps, I stamped using pigment ink then heat embossed with white EP onto Kraft card, I coloured them in using pencils, the background is Brusho's, I used a memory box die for the corner and the word is by Penny Black.

Thank you for visiting today, have a great day xx Zoe xx
