So very nice of you to stop by! What a fun and challenging hobby to have!

May you always have work for your hands to do.
May your pockets hold always a coin or two.
May the sun shine bright on your windowpane.
May the rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near you.
And may God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.

We Wish You a Merry Christmas

This is for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge...Week 162. (Website) The challenge was to use Penny Black stamps to create the background and had to use at least one Penny Black Image. Well...this was a challenge as I was trying to do Christmas cards and had only one Penny Black stamp! So...I used the little mouse at the end of the sleigh as the background! He got cut off cuz the image was too big...but he is still part of the group! I used GKD white  and grass green cs, Basic Grey Jovial paper as dp on the inside. Colored with Copics, Sakura glitter pens, added some Polar White Flower Soft for snow, die cut with curved rectangles by Spellbinders. The sentiment on the inside is a Stampabilities Warm Your Heart. Added a ribbon, bow and some bling...and We Wish You a Merry Christmas!
