Liberty, a bunny and some flowers



Hello Peeps, I am running late with my mid month Penny Black and More post, truth is most things have been a tad up in the air the last few weeks due to a couple of medical blips, but things are on the up I think as I've just had positive results on one 'female' issue and just awaiting an investigative procedure for the other.

The top share is not a 'me' card at all as I always struggle with anything cute or that needs colouring but I have always rather liked this Penny Black stamp, it reminds me of a really old photo of myself aged about five wearing a coat very similar and coincidentally with a couple of my pet rabbits.

I also have so many Tattered Lace cards still to share so am adding a few more to this post.

One that was made specifically for the USA shows

Another for the USA shows

Using just the cats from the Window Scene in yesterdays post

One of the Gatefold Embossing Folders which Nancy launched on C&C this morning

The new Decorative Centre Stepper die set

Thanks for taking a peek.

  16. PB makes doing cute really easy. This little pink sweetie is adorable and it does indeed take one back to a gentler era of time. Love the pinks with her..just perfect. Also really liking the Liberty one...that would be a great card for some of our USA holidays. And each card you've shared is always so unique with the treatments & techniques you put into each design. I'm seeing the TL stepper die used on many blogs, and it's just so versatile & elegant. The gorgeous floral card will always grab my eye, and clever idea of the kitty shelf,with that treatment. Again, each card is just so lovely to enjoy. Glad that the medical stuff is getting sorted, and hope good news is forthcoming on all tests! TFS & Hugs too.

  37. Hi Brenda, So happy one of your issues is on the positive side. Your PB card is sweet, and I love bunnies, too. Raised hundreds of them as a kid. I love the Tattered Lace dies, and great to see these fabulous cards made with them. Wow, you are a busy lady!

    Thank you for your sweet comment on my blog. Please don't remove me from the Vintage Stamping challenge yet! My snowflake on my tag was stamped twice in Versamark and Colorbox ink, and it is the focal point of my tag! Thank you! Big hugs!

  44. Hi, it's me again! I told you I stamped my snowflake with Versamark ink and Colorbox chalk ink. That is absolutely FALSE! It IS stamped, but I used just the Colorbox ink. I tried different things to get the chalked look, that I got my inks all confused. I only know this, because I am trying it again on another project right now. Sorry for any confusion! I'll blame it on the high pressure system or whatever weather pattern we have right now! Tee Hee! Hugs!

  45. Gorgeous cards again Brenda. I think you can safely say that Howard at C & C loved your samples, he was thrilled when showing them earlier in the week and I was thrilled for you as you work so hard and deserve the recognition:) I love the stepper card and the multi fold one is fabulous. Wishing you a wonderful weekend. Sandra X

  49. I am sorry if I have already commented, my brain is a bit scrambled from some new meds lol! I don't often crave dies but I have got to get that Day of the Dead one - I can have some real fun with that. I adore the bunting too on the first one, and those cats are calling to me. You are so talented Brenda you flip between styles so easily and every one is always more than good too Karen x
