Did you see the new stamps from Penny Black?

Hello Friends,Well....I would love to hear what you think? If you belong to the Penny Black Club you know what I am talking about. ONLY THE CLUB MEMBERS received a newsletter sharing some of the new stamps from Penny Black's NEXT RELEASE. The newsletter went out a  few days ago and ONLY THE CLUB members are the FIRST TO SEE SOME OF THE NEW STAMPS and a project card too!! How exciting is that?? Do you feel left out?? Do you hate surprises??  It's not to late to join the club. Click here to join the club and Penny Black will have another mailing just in case you missed it just for you. 

I would love to hear your thoughts. I will be giving away this background stamp that you see below stamped on the name "Nancy" If you could send a healing prayer for Nancy that would be great. I made this for a special friend who's mothers has been in and out of the hospital. :( 

This was the first time I used the Silhouette and that was a big moment for me. I have had the machine for a year and at the time I found out it wasn't compatible with a Mac but, now it is :) I am very excited to use it more. I hope you have a happy weekend. I have a wedding shower to attend at a RAW foods restaurant that is supposed to be amazing!! I can't wait to make the card tomorrow and share it soon. I will announce all winners next week from all of my different posts this week so please check in with me. Hugs, Kathy


Save your lunch doily

Hello Friends, Well I guess you can only save your lunch doily IF they serve you with one. At National Airport  I had time to sit down and have a salad before my airplane took off. Under my veggies was this beautiful doily. If the waitress wasn't so busy I would have asked her for a few extra. Now I wish I had been more patient to score more of these dainty doilys!

I created this for Simon Says Stamp Challenge this week which is "Mother's Day, Girlie with Basic Grey" Here is the blog link to see what the talented DT has created. Don't forget a random winner is selected each week for a $50.00 gift certificate!! So generous!

Mothers Day
The first thing I did was distress the white doily with Worn Lipstick Distress Ink. I glued it on some blue paper and added some white lines with my fav gel pen and some pearls to the outside. The center papers are Basic Grey called "Hopscotch" . I love the cross word pattern on the upside down flower pot and decided to add some shading on the paper with this brown Copic maker. (others are listed in the supplies at the bottom of my post) To color the hedgehog from Penny Black I used Copic markers.

Mothers Day

The center of the flower is a new thing for me and I thrilled with it. I mixed two Flower Soft colors. This and this one and expect to see lots more of this. Just a warning.

I have some exciting news!!!!!!! When I was looking for my flower soft link I found my magic scissors here that I have been searching for ONE YEAR (because I need a spare) !!!!!!!!!!!! Once you get use to them they will change your life...or rather how you cut!!!! I just ordered THREE MORE!! YAY this is big news for me and just had to share with you!! 

If you are interested I have three different cards that I made with this Penny Black transparent set called "Wonderful Day" Here, here & here.
Have a great day! Hugs, Kathy

This is a tag I created for a very special friend. The background was created with one of PB's new stamps and Worn Lipstick then I used perfect pearls over some Versa Mark and set it with water.
I am so excited that so many people are praying for the sweet Gavin from yesterdays post.

A request for prayers & a stamp giveaway

Hello Friends, I hope you had a nice and relaxing weekend. We actually had some sunshine which is so refreshing and a good way to start out the week. I hope your week is off to a good start :)

Happy Birthday
I am waiting for the new Penny Black flowers and thought it would be fun to see which ones are your favorite. I would love to know then, I can feature your favorites when it's my turn to create cards for the Penny Black Blog.  
I will choose a random winner to receive this "Star-Inspired" stamp when you "vote" on your favorite flower.
These are the flowers below I would love for you to vote on. I would love to hear your TOP TWO favorites. If you can tell me in the comment section on my blog that would be awesome! Thank you for taking the time to do this if you have time  :)

THESE ARE THE new eight EXQUISITE FLOWERS & it's so hard for me to choose. Your votes will help me decide which ones to feature.

This card below is one that I made for the catalog here and you will find a new video that I just saw was posted by Elizabeth!!  Her videos are always have such great ideas and tips. 

To color all of this particular flower I used Tombow watercolor markers. I think you will find this stamp easy to color and or paper piece. I cut some extra petals for leaves and embossed the background with the same flower. Pour some Glossy Accents in the middle to give it that extra little something.

Happy Birthday
A friend of mine is asking if you will say a prayer for her 3 year old son who was just diagnosed with leukemia. I am sure you can imagine how tragic this news is to hear from your pediatrician. Latrice is collecting cards to try and bring a little comfort to the family. You can read more about it & get the details here. I am always amazing at the card making community and what big hearts you all have.

I'll leave you with another flower. The bottom layer is embossed on vellum. Let me know if you have any questions. I am grateful for you visiting my blog. If you would like to see a flower I created with the clear set called "To You" click here. Thanks again :)  Hugs, Kathy
