Some Exciting News

Morning Peeps sorry once again for my absence, sometimes life just gets in the way of crafting and making cards has to take second place.  After not really crafting much for more than a month I seem to have lost my Mojo somewhere, but will send out a search party today.

Anyway back to todays card.  When I first started blogging, many moons ago, the very first Design Teams I was asked to join as a Design Team Member, where Tilda & Friends and Penny Black Saturday Challenge, in fact I was a founder member of Penny Black Challenge so I was so excited when dear Kath asked me if I had time to rejoin the DT,  although I have a lot less time for crafting now I just had to say yes, I have always loved my PB stamps and now I have a no excuse to not use them.

OK time for this week's challenge...

HOT METAL
The prize this week for one lucky winner who will be chosen at random and announced next Saturday is...

to spend in their online store where you will find lots of your favourite Penny Blacks and lots of other lovely crafting goodies for your crafty stash...

PB!

Its a very plain card, but so easy to make as a batch of Christmas Cards.  I have used one of my favourite Penny Black Wood Mounted Stamps “Fantasy”, the image was stamped with an Emboss Inkpad and embossed with Platinum Sparkle Regular WOW powder. I have added a few Self Adhesive Rhinestones to the tree for a little added impact.

The image and embossed panel have been mounted onto Silver Centura Pearl card.  The background panel was embossed with M-bossabilities Flora Folder.  I have edged the Panel with Silver Halo Glitter.

I thought you might like to see my very first Penny Black DT Card for the very First Penny Black Saturday Challenge, way back in June 2008, OMG how different my crafting is now.  We didn’t have the Dies, inks and wonderful embellishments we have now, the world of cardmaking and blogging has just grown so much over the years.  This image was coloured with Polychromos Pencils.

Hope you have a good weekend
