Penny Black Cards

I made these note cards using Penny Black's "Flower Gallery" ( 30-031 - $11.50 plus postage @ . I heat embossed the flowers and then colored them with SU inks and SU blender pens. I love this technique.

Teddy is the stamp called "Team Effort" (#2980 K - $10.00 plus postage @ I colored this stamp with SU markers.

Just click on my Penny Black banner and it will take you right to the website where there are thousands and thousands of stamps and all of them @ the best price you will find any where. When you order just please remember to tell them, in the comment section when you pay, that Harriet Hensley sent you......

Sunday Afternoon

Today has been very peaceful and after all the excitement yesterday I am thankful...I have been in craft room (for which I am even more thankful because it could be gone)all afternoon... I have made 2 cards and 2 matching envelopes for my friend who has asked for cards and envelopes because her daughter goes in the military Thursday and her husband is going to Iraq she wants really special cards and envelopes...

I also made my card for my shoebox swap Tuesday night...I used SU stamp set Razzle Dazzle and Oval All for the sentiment....pale plum, old olive, and white CS. The DSP is the Razzleberry Lemonade. I used scalloped oval and scalloped border SU punches. The ribbon is also the new SU RazzleBerry with the dots on the back side....Was quick and easy !!!! And I am all about quick and easy.....

Excitement @ my House

A huge limb the size of a tree fell at my house and all that saved me, my son and my dogs were the power lines.... the only damage was to the over hang at the back door... and when it happened I thought that a small limb had fallen ... wrong...well sort of wrong was a huge limb... but it has been moved and power restored to my house and neighborhood... and I am so thankful

Cards - Penny Black Stamps

I have been coloring and coloring and made these cards.... Remember you can get all the Penny Black Stamps @ the best prices and you can get all the old stamps... The Friend to Friend was stamped with #1106K Friendly Tea Time...Isn't it the cutest and was so much fun to color with colored pencils and Sansodor to blend and smooth out the colors...

The Teddy and Company Stamp set #30-034 is an acrylic set and the one I used is one of the set...I colored with my SU markers and not real happy with results but is cute all the same...You can also order this set from and REMEMBER to let them know that I sent you....
