Garden Visit


Happy Friday! If you're a Penny Black fan and haven't checked out the Penny Black Saturday Challenge blog before, be sure to stop by. I've been checking in on their challenges and amazing design team samples for a while now, but this is my first time playing. This week it's a sketch challenge:


The image I used is called Garden Visit, and the sentiment is from Flourishes' Friendly Reminders. Coloring is with Tombow markers and a water brush. The papers are from Kaiser Craft's 6x6 Devonshire collection. The scalloped and beaded border strips along the bottom of the card are die-cuts that are included in the paper pack. Love that! I'm anxiously awaiting a shipment of new Spellbinders dies - hopefully today! In the meantime, I thought I'd try something different with the main image, so I backed it with a paper doily.

I've been messing around in Facebook a little this week and finally claimed ownership of this blog. I must confess to being not all that savvy with FB, and I don't totally understand the whole Networked Blogs thing, but for now, I've added the little widget to the right sidebar, so if that's helpful to you, have at it!

Thanks for stopping by!
