Another Penny Black, and a hot date-not for me!

Another week is flying past at breakneck speed! Wednesday, so its the big day for Steve's date with his young lady, why is an 11 year old getting more romance than me???  The plan is for Grandad to take them to Mc Donalds and then shopping for a birthday present, if your wondering why its not me thats taking them, its quite straight forward- I dont have a brand new car like Grandad and therefore my little 55 Corsa would embarrass my son!!!!
To be fair though, he has made more effort than most men-none of that 'spray a bit of deodorant over the sweaty armpits' mallarky! he is showered (and face shaved, did i mention he is 11!!!!!!) and the house is whiffing quite heavily of lynx already!

I still havent got a huge amount of stuff to show you as im still working on secret stuff, but here is another card made with the Penny Black crossword stamp-but without the crossword!

The Sentiment as also a PB. I coloured with pencils. The lurrrvly white embossed card is from Cardcraft Plus, in other colours too. All layered up for nice dimension.

Thanks for looking!
