New Penny Black goodies and a card

Hello everyone and thanks so much for stopping by!

Since my birthday is coming up I decided to treat myself to a few new goodies from Penny Black. I have been wanting to get some of these for quite some time now, but my somewhat local stamping store never did get them in and now they closed their doors for good :-(
I've been hearing only good things about the company PB stamps and finally decided to place an order.
What a great company, and fantastic costumer service!! I received them FAST, just 3 days after ordering, plus I was able to keep a set that was accidentally sent to me instead of another one, and I received the correct one the next day! They have the best selection of Penny Black stamps, awesome prices best shipping options! I will surely be back!!

Here are my new goodies.


And here is a card I made for this week's Penny Black Saturday Challenge, with the theme of "Christmas in July". The stamp is from the set "Holly Jolly".

It's a simple card, I colored the image with derwent coloursoft pencils and blended with baby oil. I applied some glassy glaze to the glas ornaments and diamond dust stickles glitter to the star. The edges were sponged with old olive ink and then I sewed around the edges. Sentiment is from a retired stampin up set. Designer Paper is also Stampin Up (retired).

Besides Penny Black saturday challenge I am also entering this card to the following challenges: Sparkle Creations Rubber Stamps Challenges - Christmas In July , Use It Tuesdays - 2W - Animals, Happileigh Scrappin - Critters, KB Cute Monday - Something Cute, Bah Humbug - Must be Christmas - mouse, Craft Us Crazy - Christmas in July and/or distressed/vintage, Moving Along With The Times - Christmas in July.

Oh, and before I leave I'd like to remind you all that this month's

Here is of what is up for grabs this month.

I got a glimpse of this over at Craft Us Crazy and just had to come see! So cute. As an owner of four cats I can certainly relate. Christmas is always interesting trying to keep the cats out of the tree.
