Vintage Penny Black

Hello friends.  I have finally managed to get into the stamp room, clear the dust and create.  Mojo was slow to come back, but I have been on a roll for a couple of days now.  Good to be having some coloring therapy.

I made this card for a little friend who has a birthday coming up in November.  She will be eight years old.  I love Penny Black vintage stamps and have a collection of them.  This one is called Friendly Chat......

I made a hidden tag card.

Card with tag in.


Card with tag pulled out.

I made this card to fit into the current Penny Black and Friends Saturday Challenge.
The theme is a color challenge using Brown, Blue and White. You have until October 6th
to join in.

Papers are from my stash.  Martha Stewart butterfly punches, Tag stamp is
a dollar stamp from Michael's.  Sticko gems on the corners.  Spellbinders 
Happy Birthday Die, and image is stamped on a Spellbinders deckled edged rectangle die.
Background die is Susan Wilson die.

Thanks for stopping by today.  Enjoy the rest of the weekend.  Until later.............

What a great idea, Sue! Love that "hidden tag" idea, and hope to incorporate it into some designs soon. I had not thought about doing that before. Beautiful colors, of course, and such a darling little girl! So glad your mojo is returning. What do people do who do not have creative hobbies? hugs, de
