Penny Black Bonanza

I have several cards to share today so words will be lacking in favour of photos.  My cards all go back to my first love in stamps - Penny Black.

My first three cards all use the theme of Love is in the Air with the 2 cute mice in the Christmas stockings.  I am entering them in the Penny Black and More challenge for January.  They will also be part of my CCC13 total.

My three other cards are below. 

This first one is for the Penny Black Blues Challenge for the month of January at the Penny Black Saturday Challenge site.

 This one was just for fun
This last one is for the One Layer Wednesday challenge to use doodling on your card.  Now I am not a confident doodler so I just did a frame.

I have used Prismacolor pencils and Zest for all the colouring on these cards with ribbon from my stash.  Papers were all grabbed from my Christmas drawer and are either Papermania or freebies. 

I hope if you have snow you are able to get out and enjoy it, or alternatively can snuggle up in the warm.


  1. Those little meeces are so cute in the christmas stockings. The snowmen cards are gorgeous too. You are well on your way with christmas cards 2013.
