Our Last Trio Challenge

Hello and welcome! I am so excited to share with you my new blog candy. Sorry I just had to post the candy first. I am so in love with all of these stamps from Penny Black. You will find all the details at the end of this post.

Now down to business.... 
For our last Trio challenge we chose this awesome stamp  
from Penny Black called Christmas Star. I love flowers and I love this stamp. It's wonderful because you can use this for any occasion. On this card all I have to do is add a  sentiment when I need a card for a particular occasion.

Christmas Star


Every card that Jennifer and Lucy design just blows me away. So let's see what they have done today. Just click on their names to be inspired. I am sad that this is the last of our stamp challenge. Thanks Jennifer and Lucy I had so much fun with you!!  And a big thanks to all of YOU !!

Click on the photos to see a better view of the supplies I used on this card. 

In case you missed this card below I just have to post it again because I love the versatility of this stamp. You can see all the Copic colors and distress ink on this post.

tis the season

tis the season

Like those flowers and butterfly!! But since they're not in the candy; I'll just go for the other nice ones from Penny Black! I have a little hedgehog but it's not the same as you offer - soooo cute!

Hi.gorgy flower ! Well..I do follow( and have been for awhile) but as usual...this is a great blog candy( and I too LUV the butterfly!) I am unable to participate even tho I follow..1) I dont have a blog and 2) unless you have a URL you can't add your name to your list..and if I knew how to post on facebook or twitter I would but that always backfires on me too.And yes...sad the trio is done!
