Absolutely love Penny Black

As you all know, my blog has become the ramblings of a mad swapper. I signed up to participate in a Penny Black card swap and I took two spots. Two sets of cards. I shared one a while ago, the card that has the adorable hedgie chatting with a worm. I haven't shared the other spot I did, I will soon. But anyway, Jen the hostess, desperately needed the last spot filled and guess what! I took it. I decided it'd be fun to have the swap return to my friend Judy. She adores PB stamps, too. So I borrowed a stamp from her and this is what I came up with...

I used Chocolate Chip card stock as my base, I stamped it with the flourish stamp from Priceless. The tab I created using my tab punch and a stamp from Totally Tabs and "friend" is from Everyday Flexible Phrases. Next the decorative paper is Tres Jolie that I got out of the clearance bins when Sari and I went to Recollections. The stamp is Penny Black Sunshine Hedge! and is such an awesome image. Judy used it to make me a birthday card. Sooo cute!! I used my prismacolor pencils and Gamsol to color. Oh and just a touch of dark olive green grosgrain ribbon. I hope you like it. I hope Judy likes it!!
OK - off to get ready for the stamp camp. Stay tuned and I'll upload the photos of the finished project later. I think you'll like it!!
