Simple Pleasures



Morning Peeps, a really quick post with my mid month Penny Black and More shares, we are off to Cambridge today for Azarias Graduation....................it's throwing it down so really hope it soon eases off as all those youngsters as well as us guests are going to get drenched hanging around for the couple of hours between robing and the ceremony. Will share some photos later in the week.


I had a delivery from Crafts U Love this week with stamps from the new Peaceful Winter collection by Penny Black, Paula had them available for immediate shipping. So I made a quick card using a couple of them 40-567 Restful and 40-558 Snowy Village along with a sentiment from 30-429 Happy Wishes. Stamped simply with Versafine black and coloured with Pan Pastels.

My second card uses 3819D Polka Wings, 4184K Rosa, 30-419 Happy Wishes and 40-546 Dancing Daisies, inked direct to stamp with Distress Markers and spritzed with water before stamping.

As I said a really quick post...................and it's still pouring !

  31. Beautifully stamped and crafted cards here since I last visited, time is not on my side and I haven't been able to get around everyone as I would have liked. The beautiful winter scene at the top is my favourite if I had to choose, I just love the shades and simple stamping.

  32. Fabulous cards Brenda, you can rely on Penny Black for beautiful snowy landscapes and watercolour flowers... It tickles me that you get the stamps from my local craft shop (the last brick and mortar one that is). I hope the graduation ceremony wasn't too wet, and you enjoyed the big moment!

  37. I love your first card . I have just been following the videos to go with this stamp launch and had a go at making my own scene. I didn't have the right stamps or inks (I do now,! ) but I was pleased with the card I did make. Hope your trip went well and your now home in time to vp batten down the hatches for storm Brian to hit us sometime tomorrow. Hugs Mrs A.

  38. Beautiful cards Brenda - both so different but each one stunning in their own right.
    Do hope the rain eased off before things got under way, and you did not get wet
    Blessings

  43. Love the first stamp, two great cards, B. I keep looking at PB scene stamps and wanting to get one, but cant seem to settle on worth the $ they cost downunder. I saw post above and so glad the graduation went off so well. Doing this on mobile and keep getting typos.
    Sending hugs and prayers, Shaz.x
