Hello. Wow I have been MIA for sure this week! Worked three days this week, Monday thru Wednesday and they were long 12 hour days, and when I get home I am brain dead, so no card making. Next week is the end of tax season and my last week to work. I will be back to being fully retired!

Today's card is for the Penny Black challenge. This is one of my favorite challenges because I love the stamps so much, especially the vintage ones I have collected over the years. The challenge this week was to use checks on your entry. I finally got the sewing machine out and figured out how t0 make this double zig zag stitch, with the help of my sister. I like the look and this was the perfect card to use the stitching on.

Hope you had a great Thursday, Michael and I went to breakfast this morning at 7:30 am. Was nice to be just the two of us, then I dropped him off at school. Fun start to the day. Until later...........
