a card and a quick note...

Hello friends!!  Popping in with a little Christmas card that I made with a new Penny Black Christmas and an old Penny Black Christmas stamp.   I also wanted to let you know that I have a post up over at the CardMaker blog so I hope you will check it out!


My card is pretty simple.  I stamped the newly released PB image "flourish holly" using  Memento Bamboo Leaves.   The sentiment (an older PB stamp) was stamped using SU!'s Cherry Cobbler.  Once the sentiment was stamped I added little dots of dark red glitter glue and the bakers twine bow.   Love how this turned out and because it was so simple to put together I think this may be our Christmas card this year.

Thanks for stopping by...

Supplies:  Cardstock:  PTI white; Stamps:  Penny Black; Ink:  Memento and Stampin Up!; Glitter glue:  Stampin Up!, Green Bakers Twine
