All About Special Women

I am running with my scissors on the Penny Black blog today .. and it's all about the special women in our lives ... including our Moms!!

I love this slapstick stamp by Penny Black.  It's called Centerpiece, and it surely is.  I've colored with Prismacolor pencils, blended with Gamsol.   There are so many ways to color this image .. and I'm trying several!

Think Spring!

30-282 Efflorescence

It isn't easy to think Spring when the roads are closed or impassable due to freezing rain!  But I gave it my best shot today on the Penny Black blog where I am running with my scissors.

Penny Black has added 6x6 Designer Paper pads to their collection.  I've used paper from the Gentle Whisper pad for this background.  The rose is a stamp included in the transparent set Efflorescence.  I've been meaning to look up that word but for now it means four gorgeous floral stamps in one set.

It's been some seriously awful winter weather the past few weeks.  The school kids have missed so many days they may have to forfeit their entire summer break.

I was delighted to ignore the icy white conditions outside while I made spring happen in my craft room.  Well, there was a little whining involved, too.

Hope to see you on the Penny Black blog.  Just click here.  And thanks for your visit!

Tutu Sweet

This little cutie is from Penny Black's transparent set Tutu Sweet.  I just love her little hairdo!

I have paper pieced her darling outfit, using the designer papers in Penny Black's newly released 6x6 paper pad Gentle Whisper.  The embossed background was done with the new embossing folder my friend Sally sent me.  I love how it matches the pattern in the paper.

Today is a Run With Scissors Day on the Penny Black blog.  You can see the other cards I made using the paper piecing technique and the new Penny Black designer papers.
