Zig Zag

I love this Penny Black image, although I'm not sure where I bought it now, despite it being a fairly recent acquisition... however here it is in a card for a couple of challenges.
I decided to combine the 'Paper Patch' challenge from Penny Black with the zig zag challenge from My Time to Craft where this is my DT card.
The papers are Cuddly Buddly, perfect for a patchwork style and the sentiment a Cuttlebug die-cut.
The easel which I am using for this card is a generous gift from Julia at Stamping Ground, the instigator of What's On Your Workdesk Wednesday, for my participation in the 1st Anniversary Celebrations of her challenge, where participants show off their work space each week. If you've never participated, check out the link on my sidebar this coming Wednesday.
Last night our granddaughter stayed overnight with us. What a treasure she is! Today we brought her back to her parents but we are staying over until tomorrow which is her second birthday!
I really think that she is bright, and having been in the business of educating small children for many years, I think I have a little experience of these matters... not that I am biased you understand... but she can count and recognise numbers to 10, can identify a square, circle, triangle, star, and heart. She knows her colours, she loves to 'read' lots of books and can sing many, many Nursery Rhymes practically word perfectly. I don't believe that many 2 year olds can do this. I'm one very proud Granny!
Tomorrow, I think we are going to visit the Zoo, I think she'll love it!
