My winning entry in Penny Black category for Cardmaker of the Year 2011

I used two of the stamps from Penny Black's 'Micey Day' clear stamp set to make this card.

After stamping and colouring in the toaster image, I cut a slit along the line where the front piece of toast meets the toaster. I then mounted it onto some brown card using narrow double-sided sticky tape around the outside edges only, so there was space to fit something into the slit I had made.

I cleaned the stamp and re-inked just the top of one piece of toast with a brown Whispers pen. I stamped four of these onto white card and then made them into complete pieces of toast with the fine end of the same pen (I made the fourth one extra long as the bottom half needed to fit into the slot I made in the toaster). I coloured the toast in with promarkers and then stamped 'with love' onto the long piece with versamark ink and chalks. I punched a small hole in the top right hand corner and tied some raffia on. I then fitted it into the slot in my toaster with just the top showing, so that it could be pulled out to reveal the message.

I stamped the teacup image onto white shrink plastic and coloured it in with whispers pens.

I made each flower by punching 2 daisies out of pearlescent white paper and layering them up with a pink gem.
