Penny Black @ Allsorts - Beauty is in the eye of the beholder

Sorry about the hiccup a couple of days ago thought I had things scheduled whoops. Finally it is 1st December and the start of the Advent Countdown it is very nearly Christmas. When our December challenge ends the Christmas festivies will be over and plans will be well in hand for the New Year. The first decade of the 21st Centenary is almost in the past, now there's a thought.

Enough! on with the challenge. We were delighted that so many people found us and shared their Christmas makes with us, thank you we hope you will join us again and maybe bring your friends along.

December then and your idea of beauty as expressed by Penny Black Stamps. Still making Christmas cards really should have started sooner hay ho. For this card I used plain hammered card blended with stormy sky and chipped sapphire 'for peace 3734F' stamped in black soot and squirted with water.   Snowflake punch in corners punched bits saved to stick around the card.   Topper cut with nestie on silver mirra card and more hammered card stamped with 'Now & Always 3515H' in Chipped Sapphire with Stormy Sky blended at edge.

Pop over to to see all beautiful things the team have made.
