Royal Mail, simple Penny Black

My baby boy is 19 today, how time flies. We all went for a meal last night 10 of us and Sam is having a party with friends tonight. I had one of my favourite meals, fish ,chips and mushy peas, it was lovely , but at about 9.30 I began feeling ill, my tummy was bloated so bad I could hardly breath then I was sick. My Mum had the same and was also ill. No it wasn't the fish others had it in where fine ,it is our dodgy tummies. I said to my hubby I'm never eating out again....famous last words.

Still making Christmas cards, even though I started early, lots of commissions  this one is for a post lady ,very fitting don't you think.

The stamp is royal mail by penny black. Coloured with promarkers and glittered with glamor dust.
The checked paper is from papercellar and the green snowflke paper ,papermania vintage Christmas. The sentiment sticker is old stash, do craft I think.

challenges entered:

The sweet stop : followed the sketch above

It's cold but bright here, had a nice walk with Sam and poodles (with their coats on ) going to chance eating some lunch now.
Stay warm and happy crafting. janex

What a pity your evening was spoiled by chucking up. At least you got to enjoy the meal for a little while. I didn't know your mum had tummy troubles too.
Love this little Penny Black image - coloured and glistened perfectly.
I'm still making cards too - thought I'd have less to make this year but have made so many friends here I need more!!
