Hello again,

When I started card making the first stamps that were introduced to me were PENNY BLACK stamps. I took a course at Bonne Idee and I was hooked. Following their blog I noticed this week that they have a "In the Garden" theme and of course you must use their stamp in the challenge. I pulled out all my stamps and found this OLDIE. In fact it's not really an oldie I just haven't used it in my blogs.

Penny Black also makes the Mimi's and the Hedgie's that I love so much!!

Here is my card:

Isn't it great!! I did it in a sold color because I wanted to enter the weekly color challenge from Dynamic Duos:
and I used this sketch from Retro sketches:

I need to make a lot of thank-you cards since the end of the school year is approaching and my son goes to a French immersion school, this is the reason behind the "MERCI"!!

These are the challenges I will be entering:
1. Penny Black Friends Saturday challenge, in the garden
2. Sweet Stampin, must stamp, flower power
3. Dynamic Duos, color challenge
4. Retro Sketches, for sketch 51
5. Critter sketch challenge, flowers

Hope you enjoyed my posts today, please feel free to leave a comment, they are appreciated and I love reading them!

and remember to
love & create ...with a smile :)
