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.
