Penny Black Friday

Published February 13, 2009 by isisimaginings

I hope everyone is having a great Friday – almost the start of the weekend, hooray! We had lots of snow last night, but it was almost completely gone by lunchtime today. It was cold this morning, I was out with Kelly for a few hours & we were frozen. The days are getting longer, so Spring is definitely on its way, it just needs to get warmer.

I need to tell you about some amazing blog candy. It’s from Stampavie & one lucky winner will get the ENTIRE Oooh La La Collection from Leere Aldrich, courtesy of Stampavie. That is TEN stamps in all!! How brilliant would it be to win them??!! To be in with a chance, go to Jessica’s gorgeous blog, The Whimsical Butterfly & leave a comment on her ‘Want Some Candy?’ post, then link her blog on yours, or as Jessica says, SPREAD THE LOVE! That’s it, she will pick a winner via on February 19 at 8a.m CST. The winner will be announced on her blog & also on the Stampavie DT blog .

As with yesterday, today’s card fulfils two challenges: Clare’s sketch on her DC blog & the Charisma Cardz Challenge 5 – 3 papers, 2 flowers & 1 ribbon. Naturally, I’m too late for that one, it ended yesterday. You know, I used to be very organised, but since the chemotherapy last year my memory is terrible. Apparently, it’s called ‘chemo brain’! I found it amusing initially, but not any more. Now I have to remember to write everything down in triplicate! Before I forget, the new challenge at Charisma Cardz is ‘cupcakes’, check out the blog for more info. Back to the card.

  • C5 white card
  • Penny Black image, coloured with Whispers pens
  • Anita’s Patterned Vellum
  • Papermill blue cardstock
  • Basic Grey Sugared paper
  • Papermania flowers & jewelled brad
  • Cuddly Buddly circular sentiment stamp
  • Brilliance Pearlescent Pink inkpad
  • Personal Impressions Hot Pink embossing powder
  • QVC ribbon & butterfly gems

Because this picture is a scan, the pink on the sentiment is not showing, but it is lovely. This is another of those cards that I sat over for hours. 🙂 I’m sending it to a DC’er, hopefully she will like it.

In last Friday’s post I said I would be watching a film called ‘The Lives of Others’. Well, I did & it was excellent. It’s set in 1984, in the former East Germany & I couldn’t find fault with any of it, which is a rare occurrence for me, lol!

Bye for now, love & light.
