I Love You MOM - Penny Black

Today was a dull and sad day! Not only because of the weather..but worse because of what happened in Boston ;(

My heart goes out to all the victims, the 3 that are no longer with us and the ones who have sever injures, my prayers are with them all!! May God be with them always!

On a lighter note, I've been meaning to use my stamps, I have a whole bunch that I pre-stamped a while ago, mostly Penny Black stamps!! I just fell in love with them, and the rest is history!!

I wanted to play along the Penny Black Saturday Challenge, so I searched through my stash of pre-stamped images and found this cute little guy. The challenge this week is the following sketch:

And here is my card!!

Here's the image colored. I used my water color pencils from Faber Castle (mostly because Ii had pre-stamped on water colored paper and I did not own any copics before). And the letters are from a new die that I purchased from Quick Kutz - high rise.

Isn't he just the cutest! I made this for a Mother's Day card, but it can also be used for a Birthday or a "just because"card for MOM!!

For this card I used a scalloped heart die and instead of cutting through card stock I used foam..it's so COOL and it gives added dimension!! I also used twine, a button and added glitter to the hearts on the DP for added shine and glitter.

I will be entering the following challenges:
Send a Smile for Kids, Happy Mothers Day from the kids
Fashionista Challenge, Mother's Day
Word Art Wednesday, #75 anything goes

Thanks for stopping by! Please send all your prayers to the Boston victims.

love & create ...with a smile :)

That is totally adorable! And so very funny that you used a stamped image the same day that I did lol ;) We were in-sync. I've been meaning to use mine! I love my stamps and they are really really neglected these days.
