Penny Black card for CASology and Penny Black challenge



Hello everyone, and a specially warm welcome to Janie, from Janie's creative corner who is joining us as a new follower this week.

Things are gradually getting back to normal around here, and I'm on a healthy eating kick to try and shed the pounds that crept on over Christmas. Who am I trying to kid - the pounds have been creeping on for quite a while now and I need to get serious! Getting back to my craft room keeps me out of the kitchen so I made a last minute card for the CASology challenge before it ends today, and the cue word this week is Bubbly


I have a cute little stamp from Penny Black that has a hedgie blowing heart bubbles, so I thought it would make a good Valentine card



I used a stamp from PTI Hanging Out for the grass and snipped apart (being braver is a New Year resolution!) a sentiment from Heart to Heart #11 to arrange it this way. I coloured the heart balloons with ink, and added some glossy accents to the red heart bubble.  I impressed the white panel with the canvas plate to add a little texture and then mounted it onto a scarlet jewel card base.

I'm also entering this into the Penny Black Sending Hugs Challenge.

Oh, how funny, Carol, I was just going through all my heart stuff tonight and I ran across this little hedgie and thought how he would have been great for the bubble challenge, as well as for VD! I'm so delighted to see that you used it! And you did an excellent job of it, too! Beautiful coloring and he looks fab on that textured background ~ a winner in my eye!! Have a great week!!
