At Stamping Sensations our theme is Traditional Christmas Colours and at PB&M it's simply Christmas.
My Penny Black share uses a super quote and I love the story behind it. The stamp is a real PB oldie and is a genuine quote taken from a New York newspaper in 1897 when a reply was sent to a little eight year called Virginia O'Hanlon who wrote in the the paper asking of Santa was real, this was their answer. The little girl on my card who for the benefit of this post we will call Virginia is part of a PB stamp called For Goodness Sake. The embossed snowflake is also PB as are the die cut snowflakes. I'm not sure Virginia would have been dressed quite like this in 1897 so I'll put it down to artistic licence.
My Stamping Sensations share above uses the new Christmas Garden stamp from this months sponsor Chocolate Baroque, it's a huge stamp and full of detail and it's easy to use just sections of the stamp as I did with my DT card earlier this month.
And my Chocolate Baroque shares, the one at the top of the post is also one of them. The show featured stamps made from Lesley's personal ephemera collection along with some favourite floral ones. Have to say I really enjoyed working working with this release.
