Penny Black Winter Fun ! :-)

Hi all, are you having a fabulous weekend ??  :-) 

Did you see the cards that I made using the new Ornamental Noel stamp from Penny Black that are being showcased today over on the Simon Says Stamp Blog ?? 

NOO !! then head on over there to have a peek and you may just win one of Simon's Fabulous Grab Bags !! :-)

While I was on a Penny Black roll I made this card too :-) Penny Black were my first love when I started stamping, being introduced to them by my lovely friend, Alison, and I still love them today :-) 

This card used a stamp from the Winter Fun Clear stamp set ,,, isn't she CUTE ! :-)

I stamped the image twice and shaped and layered her so she looks like a 'real' girl ,, haha :-)

see that fab strip of silver ,, I made that by fixing a strip of sookwang across the paper and sprinkled with glitter,, sookwang is a fabulous strong double sided sticky tape and is perfect for glittering EVERYTHING !

I am really enjoying making coordinating envelopes ! :-)

Thanks for looking :) I appreciate your comments so please leave me one :-)
