Card Set Featuring Penny Black

Hello, friends! I'm stopping by to share some cards I sent in for the Cards for Little Hearts winter/holiday card drive for children in the hospital with cardiac issues.

My cards all feature sweet images from the "Jolly Critters" set by Penny Black.  I know these cute images can cheer up any child! (The sentiments are all from Hero Arts.)

I will be entering these cards into the current November Penny Black Saturday Challenge (PBSC) where "Anything Goes (optional tags)."

 My first three cards feature this cute ice skating mouse:

Next up, a few cards featuring the sweet bird from the set:

Next up, a card with this adorable dog!
I'm also entering this card into the current Addicted to Stamps and More! Challenge #367 - Make Your Mark as I had fun stamping, coloring and distress inking rhis image!

The next card features these cute mice!

Finally, two variations of a similar card featuring this cute cat!

I had a lot of fun playing with this Penny Black stamp set, and I do hope these cards bring some cheer to children in hospitals this holiday season.

Thanks for sticking by through a long post!

Take good care,

Coffee Lover's Blog Hop and Giveaway!

Hello, friends!  I'm here today to share my card for the 2019 Fall/Winter Coffee Lovers Blog Hop.  I haven't missed one yet!

For my card, I started by stenciling stripes using my Altenew "Watercolor Stripes Stencil." Then I dry embossed an oval frame using my Darice "Oblong Doily" embossing folder. Next, I stamped my Neat and Tangled "Warm Wishes" stamp in black in, then again in VersaMark ink and embossed with JudiKins "Iridescent Embossing Powder" for some sparkle. Finally, I restamped the coffee cup onto patterned paper and fussy cut, adding some glitter pen accents and a twine bow for detail.

GIVEAWAY ALERT!!!  As a thank you for stopping by, I will be offering a coffee-crafty prize to a random commenter.  Here is what is up for grabs:

I will draw a random name from all comments on November 8th, the final day of the hop.
Good luck and happy hopping!

As always, thank you for stopping by!
