Penny Black Stamp Squad Blog Hop!


Welcome!  I'm so excited to be participating in the first ever Penny Black Stamp Squad blog hop!  Not only are we hopping, we're giving away stamps, too! Leave a comment along the hop at each stop, including the Penny Black Blog, for a chance to win a selection of Penny Black stamps.

You should have come from Greta's blog.  If you'd like to begin our Hop from the beginning, and for a listing of all blogs participating, please visit the Penny Black Blog HERE.

Here's the card I made for today:

Penny Black Stamp Squad Blog Hop

I really love this background stamp called Indian Wheel!  It will adapt to anything else you pair it with.   I used it here in a partial panel, and then stamped, colored and fussy-cut the beautiful poppies from Blooming Garden, and added my sentiment (from the Friendship set) in a banner form.  Love these corals!

Now, please hop on over to my sweet friend Judy's blog, Livin' the Dream.  I just know she'll have something amazing to show you!

  128. When I first viewed your card, I smiled, mostly because to the accuracy of your "Fussy Cut" of the flowers and knowing my cuts would have been titled "Frustrating Cuts"! and would have looked like a mountain road (with a few scenic turnouts added). The rest of my smiles go for your use of festive, natural colors and a great design.
