I can't beleive she's been keeping this a secret! She's tremendously talented so make sure you check out her blog.

Now I have to get to work passing this along, I couldn't pick just 7 bloggers so I have 8 to give this to. Although there are so many more I would like to pass this on to Including the person who gave it to me!

Penny Black Challenge #75 One for The Guys

Thought I'd make a little Card to give my Honey for Christmas for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge # 75. I used Paper from a Cosmo Cricket paper pad that included the cute little journaling card that says "have you been Good". I added a sentiment that I thought he would find humerous on the inside of the card "Oh, that's to bad I was really looking for you to be a little Naughty..."

-PP Cosmo cricket
-Cardstock Bazzil
-Stamp Penny Black
-Assorted Bead Spacers/brads
-Punches EK Success
-Antique Linen Distress Ink
Thanks for visiting, Have a great weekend-Tania
P.S. Only 6 more sleeps until our Crazy Croppers Christmas Retreat! Yeh!!!

Punched Border Penny Black Card

This card was a complete accident. I needed snowflakes for another project so I punched them out the nearest scrap I could find. Then I wanted to use the cute little mouse as a cut out and grabbed the same scrap and stamped him but I liked the way it looked so much I didn't cut it out I made it into a card. I attached the paper to a piece of acetate so that it kept its airy feel and added another punched piece to the back.


-Punch Martha Stewart
-Stamp Penny Black
-Bling clear
-Dazzling Diamonds Glitter SU
-Eyelets, Turquoise

A Little House Mouse

Happy Wednesday! Happy because the week is half over. Sorry for no posts lately but there's been no Mojo here as I've had the flu over the last week. Didn't even have the energy to post the couple of cards that were already done. I'm on the mend now though so will hopefully have some energy to get something creative done soon.

This is one that I did a couple of weeks ago and I love that it's so simple. The snowflake border is stamped and embossed with bridal tinsel. The stamp is House Mouse. I watered coloured it and then put glitter on the wreath. I couldn't capture this with the picture but it is quite pretty. Thanks for stopping by-Tania
