Singer's Muse by Penny Black

Singer's Muse by Penny Black by judkajudy
I don't seem to have much ability to create a collage when using my stamps. I appeciate when a stamp includes all the elements necessary for a lovely collage. If you have a bird, some flowers and musical notes all you have to do is add color and there you have it!  Penny Black put it all together for me!!

I colored the images with Copics. I double stamped the bird and colored the second image and trimmed it out and popped it up in order to have dimension to the card.

"Friend" is part of a sentiment from the Edge to Edge transparent set by Penny Black. Love the size of it!! I couldn't resist putting a little wooden bird on the sentiment tag. And of course a line of stitching!

It's Memorial Day weekend here in the United States. Our family has a strong military tradition with all four branches represented among the generations. I was an "Army brat" growing up and saw firsthand the difficulties of frequent transfers and separations.

My grand nephew Michael was severely wounded and lost both legs serving his second tour in Afghanistan. I am happy to report he is doing extremely well. He and his boyhood friend Tony, who also lost his legs, have partnered in starting a nonprofit to provide hunting and fishing trips to fellow wounded warriors!

Enjoy your holiday weekend; but please remember the meaning behind it.

If you stop by my home, be sure to notice the seven flags proudly waving in the front yard!

I'm glad to hear Michael is doing so well, Judy! How amazing that he has taken what happened to him and turned it around to help others - you must be so proud!

Love your gorgeous collage card - what a pretty stamp that is and you've used it beautifully! Sending hugs!

Mother you did not send a birthday card for me to send you on your birthday. Happy memorial day weekend and remember the navy is the only branch that matters. Love the colors, seriously penny black is amazing why use any other product?

Mom, no shout out for the navy the only branch that counts? Seriously, your penny black cards are the best, I may not know much but the simplicity of use and the amazing colors and beauty. Count me a penny black man!
