Hello Friends and Peeps,
this time I have a Penny Black card to show you...(I LUV PB stamps just as much as WS!)
This was made for the latest Forest's swap. Forest (Ranger) is Jeanette's SCS nickname .
She's a wonderful stamping friend, fabby hostess and all around caring and kind person, not to mention the best prayer warrior one could ask for... One can count on Jeanette for practically everything...oh yeah...I forgot one thing...She's also VERYYYYYYY chattyyyyy!!
(but don't tell her I told you so.....lol)
Her swaps are the chattiest one can imagine....so much 'traffic' and a load of fun! :o)
In Jeanette's own word to describe her swap: "...For this round in ' WHAT CAN WE DO IN THE FOREST ' swappers are asked to create full-sized cards that show something one does in the forest. In those beautiful natural habitats called forests, we might go camping, fishing, or hiking, making s’mores, animal watching, canoing, boating, picnicking… the list goes on and on..
I decided to add some pretty lace on my cards...wondering now if the final result could -perhaps- be dubbed 'shabby-schick' ? I hope you could tell that the scene I wanted to create was that of going to pick a perfect Christmas tree in the forest....at least this is what my hubby and I do yearly and loving it... Many times we thought to go 'artificial' yet every single time we seem to change our minds at the very last hour...:o) For this card I chose an image from Penny Black's clear stamp collection called ' The Wonder' (30-040). I added a background of trees cut out from nesties. Then I chose a CB folder and literally smooshed it with Cranberry Crisp and Green Galore inks on it before proceeding to dry emboss the small tree.
Glitter, of course is reigning supreme! :o)
