A Penny Black Card and Happy News


First the Penny Black card using the Heart Swatches transparent set.   My card is inspired by the technique Birgit used here.  I've also used Penny Black's creative die from Love Expressions

And now for the happy news!  It is all I can do to sit still while I tell you that I have been invited to be a regular contributor to the Penny Black blog!  My first column appears today and I would love it if you would stop by the Penny Black blog and share in the fun.   Hopefully, you will meet my family as they hang out and leave their comments.

And for those of you who count the number of exclamation points I often use while discussing Penny Black, I do hope you noticed the limited use in this announcement.

BUT IT IS VERY DIFFICULT TO CONTAIN MY EXCITEMENT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
