Awww ain't she cute.

See these Penny Black stamps that I recently acquired at the Stamparama show?  Cute aren't they.....and I don't really do cute.  But I have really been taken by these, the little girl is cute but kind of funky too.  I think the one with her bike could be based on a cartoon version of me....no....don't you think so?  Well I have my trusty purple and silver bike, I wear bright colours, I have been known to try and eat my weight in cake.... but.....OK,  I don't wear dresses to cycle in nor do I have straight hair unless the hairdresser has been (see previous post).  But other than that it's me!......(mumble years) ago..... 

Any way these were too cute not to buy and I have made a variety of cards to sell at the Breast Cancer coffee morning I am organising at school.  Used a new Nestie to cut the stamp out and left it on to leave a white boarder while I inked around the image.  The stamps were coloured in using Promarkers.
And this one is my favourite, just look at her with her bright red flower in her hair especially matched to her bright bike......that's the sort of thing I would do....except my helmet would crush the flower!

By the way, I have entered her into this weeks The Stamp Man Challange Blog for easel cards  here.
