Penny Black Sketch and Caardvarks -Trees


It seems that if I've dug out a stamp for a challenge recently, I have managed to use it for a second time very quickly thereafter.
Here is the Penny Black tree again. It is lovely isn't it! I love the sentiment, which was computer generated and reads, 'There are but two lasting bequests we can give our children. One is roots, the other, wings.' If we do this we can't go too far wrong can we! I like to think that this is what we did for our kids. We are certainly very proud of them both. One is a doctor and the other a superb HR manager and fabulous mum!
The papers are mainly Clare Curd's signature range, with a little scrap of Pink Petticoat I believe. The flower is Prima and the butterfly, Cuttlebug.
Thanks so much for your comments, I truly appreciate your visits!
