Peace, Happiness, Joy

Always fun to get away, but hard to catch up.  We had a great first camping trip with Fritz--barked very little.  My weekend to work & I'm still doing laundry, but did take time to make my card for the Merry Monday challenge. Last week I didn't get my post done in time & didn't want to miss another challenge.  Penny Black's Christmas Star is probably my favorite holiday flower.  No time for fussy cutting, so I colored directly on the stamp with pink & red Gelatos & then stamped onto wet watercolor paper.  I smudged it a bit with my finger before overstamping with Delicata Golden Glitz--my favorite gold ink.  I sponged some gold on the panel edges, too.  The sentiment is also Penny Black & is stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa.  
I'm slowly catching up on your blogs--can't wait to see what you've been creating.  Enjoy the rest of your weekend.

How wonderful that Fritz enjoyed his first camping excursion; he'll be excited for the next time, now that he knows what it's all about! Your card...dreamy, delicious, exquisite. Pink, red, gold - beautiful combination. I'm heading back for a closer look - and a whole bunch more swooning!! Hugs~c
