Penny Black, Daring Card Makers & ScrapStars!!!

OK, got another three challenges done!!! WOOHOO!!!!

This is for the Penny Black blog challenge. I love PB stamps but don't have a ton of them because they are hard to find locally. I am not an order stamps online kind of girl - I like to get the stamp in my hands and get a feel for it (there are a couple exceptions to this which are Bella stamps and PCS stamps.......lol). So, the few I have I really LOVE LOVE LOVE!!!! The challenge this week was "frame it" - in other words frame your image however you like just put a frame around it.

Since my frame was a heart it also doubles up over at Daring Card Makers, a new place I found this past week and am excited to play along at!!

And..................ScrapStars had a challenge to use a song title in your card!!! On of my favorite songs by Faith Hill is "I Love the Way You Love Me" and I used it here on this card!!!!

So, here goes:


I so love this little guy with his heart balloons!!!!

Thanks again for stopping by and as always, Happy Scrappin'!!!!

What a clever idea to use the heart as a frame :)

PS I know what you mean about online ordering but there are some v good suppliers of PB who give fab service and tend to be cheaper than local shops (sad but true!!) Hope you can build up your collection - it's very addictive !


Just to cover all bases...................

I am not the best scrapper out there. I don't claim to be totally original, I lift from many places and in many forms from color combinations, to product usage, to technique and so forth. I try to be fair to all scrappers out there and mention them when I lift from them - now keep in mind, there are so many people out there scrapping, card making and altering items that naturally more than one person will have similar ideas. When I mention lifting, or casing as some call it, I mean when you intentionally take a design you see and duplicate it exactly or only change up the coloring........KWIM???
