A Penny Black Moment


I just love this little bear - won him last year... I think he's a him... I used Frayed Burlap Distress Ink and Antique Linen - love the brown tones with this bear.  The chimney is a red brown, just like they should be.  hehehe  I finally used my Martha Stuart thing-a-ma-jig, to create the stenciling on my card.   Love the way White Enamel Accents adds texture and the Xmas Red Stickles is just perfect on the red hat.  I'm entering the Penny Black challenge.for this month - All Creatures Great and Small.  What a delightful title.  I've read a wonderful book by that title a long time ago now by Alf Wight a British Veterinary Surgeon, who wrote under the pseudonym James Herriot.  His books made me laugh so hard, I had tears in my eyes.
