Penny Black at Allsorts September Challenge - "Get Ahead for Christmas"

It's time for the September Penny Black at Allsorts Challenge.

Our theme this month is:-

I've used two Penny Black Stamps. The wreath is a wood mounted stamp called "Adornment" (3996J) and the robin is from a clear set called "Jolly Friends" (30-058).

Here's a glittery close up! Christmas Red stickles on the wreath and Glamour Dust on the robin.

I hope you are inspired to join us with your Penny Black Christmas creations.

Hugs and best wishes, Clare xx
