I created this little scene by combining several Penny Black images. I'm joining the challenge on the Penny Black blog to "Beat the Heat". You have until Monday, August 5th to enter. Complete challenge details are here.
My inspiration for this card came from the cheery red gingham ribbon that Peets R, a designer for Penny Black, often uses on her delightful cards. It always makes me smile! You can see what I mean here.
I used a die cut window as the base of my little scene, adding the kitty photographer from the wood block stamp Snap Shot. Fortunately, I amputated his little head so quickly he didn't even notice!
The little mouse gardener is from the transparent set, Garden Critters. I stamped the word "smile" (taken from a very large sentiment from the Edge to Edge set)onto a speech bubble made with a Penny Black creative die from the Tagged set.
All in all, the red gingham and the adorable critters from Penny Black made me smile .... big!!
We are enjoying a rather mild temperature August day here in Alabama. Back to school occurs in a little more than a week. Kids in Alabama return to school while it is still pretty hot and humid. So glad you came to visit!!
