The BIG News :0)

Well, I have been pretty much BURSTING to share my BIG NEWS with everyone and today is "THE DAY" :0)

Today I make my debut on the Penny Black Blog as a new member of their incredible Design Team! I just cannot tell you what a wonderful privilege it is for me to be among these talented ladies - or how exciting to have the opportunity to help showcase Penny Black's wonderful line of stamps! It's back to the thrill of woodblock, with cling and transparent stamps as part of the mix .... mmmmmm!

Right now they are counting down to Christmas - and I got a box of goodies filled with Seasonal Fare to tempt the creative juices ... so my additions to their blog today are as follows ...


This cutie image called "Ginger Joy" - with paper pieced 'icing' and glossy accented holly ....


And this gorgeous bush -  with french knots for berries ....

I have another card up, and all the deets on which stamps these are, can be found on the Penny Black Blog today!

Thanks for popping in and letting me have a little gush ... I'm pretty jolly tickled :0)
