Candy and Penny Black and More reminders



Good Morning Peeps, a really quick share before I start work with a reminder that over at Penny Black and More our March challenge 'One for the Boys' still has another ten days to run so plenty of time to join in and today some of the DT are sharing some more of their inspirational work with you.

With Mr Mojo out of town whilst I've had flu I din't get round to making one for that post as the majority of last weeks work ended up on the bin, but here is one really really, really quick card I made first thing just to show willing.

The main image is Penny Black Japanese Maple, the sentiment Penny Black Flourish Birthday and the shading has been done with Pan Pastels.

Don't forget there is a set of Hero Arts stamps to be won in this weeks Saturday candy, I will announce a winner each Saturday drawn from all comments made during the week. All you have to do is:

1) You are a follower (candy only blogs will be discounted)
2) Post the logo above on your sidebar and leave a comment


Have a good week everyone.

  14. Hi, Sue! When you use the pan pastels like that, do you just "scrub the color" into the cardstock? It looks gorgeous, and highlights the leaves, too. A very classy looking card. I very much enjoy the PB solid stamp images - they are just lovely, and your card looks wonderful. hugs, de

  26. This is lovely Brenda, ideal image for a male card. Lovely image and I love the style of the sentiment too. Probably people who aren't crafters wouldn't believe how a different "happy birthday" can alter the look of a card completely.

    Hope you're feeling better. Take care,

  27. I love your framing of the panel & they way the sentiment has its own gap to extend into the deep white border. The matting upon black & aqua looks super with the pale aqua glow around the image. Hope you're improving quickly.

  28. Your comment made me laugh Brenda,I must admit I'm a dinosaur also with all things that involve technology,but due to Google closing down their reader on 1st July I have changed to Bloglovin so I can still follow all the blogs I do now and hopefully not lose my followers,so that is why I have Bloglovin,really easy to do,if you ever want to know anything about it just leave me a comment or drop me an e-mail....Beautiful card,I love the image and your design...
