Are you all singing! (xmas5)

Thank you all for your wonderful encouragement, you are such special pals. I thought it may be time for a sing-a-long, lol. 
Well this stamp is even older. It is a wood mounted Penny Black and I have again paired it up with a great LoTV sentiment. I am really enjoying my play with my older stash. As this stamp is quite intricate I did use some of my old Marvy pens alongside my pencils. 
Now a Question - has anybody else got Christmas brads in their cupboard? I have used one!!! to attach my ribbon. 
Today I spent some time clearing weeds from the garden, they do like this "bit" of rain. Also moved some plants, while I can recognise them to make way for our next delivery of building materials. After a bit of a break we will soon be starting on the next floor. Do hope we have the roof on before the end of the year. Anyway hugs to all. xx Flora

  14. This is fabulous Flora, I love your Penny Black image and your pretty die cut frame. I have loads of Christmas brads and always forget to use them.
    It has been rather cloudy here today so I took the opportunity to have a clear out in my Green House, everything had become rather overgrown.
    Take care.
