Guess what?! :)

....time to spill the beans.....the girls at Penny Black have asked me to stay on as a permanent member of the DT!! Eeeeeeek! I can't even begin to tell you how excited I am about this!! To be invited to design for one of my VERY favorite stamp companies is a dream come true for me. {{big BIG grin}}



This week on the Penny Black blog, we'll be showing ways to take Christmas stamps and use them on non-Christmas cards. It's my turn today and more will be posted in the days to come.

For my card, I used my Best Day Ever transparent set. The main image was stamped on Cryogen irridescent white, I added some machine stitching, and popped the whole panel up on foam tape. The hedgie was colored with Copic markers, lavender Stickles were added to accent the star, and I gave him some white dots on his cheek with a Sharpie white paint pen.

Have an awesome day!
