No Power=Late Post

Sorry for the delay on today's post. I was a part of the widespread power outtage throughout CA, AZ, and Mexico yesterday.  Thankfully, we were only without power for about 5 1/2 hours. (Although no AC for 5 1/2 hours in the desert is NOT fun!)  Anyways, here is today's Christmas card from the new Penny Black Christmas Catalog.
I love that the new stamp used on this card, Penny Black 424L Winter Sky, can be used for Christmas, everyday, and even fall. 

I began by stamping the stamp above using Memento Tuxedo Black Ink on to Tiara White cardstock.  The background was then inked with Peeled Paint, Crushed Olive, Forest Moss, and Walnut Stain Distress Ink.  The bottom portion was inked with Walnut Stain Distress Ink and then stamped with Penny Black 40-047 Warm Wishes. The sentiment (die cut from Spellbinders Labels 8) and the outer border were both lightly inked with Brushed Corduroy and Antique Linen Distress Ink.  Sentiment by Penny Black, 30-087 Winter Wonders.

Here's a peek at today's card on the Mementos blog:


Thanks so much for stopping by this week!  I'll be back next week with a new PB&J card and all new cards for the entire week with a featured artist I know you all love. :)  Hope you have a great weekend!

No air! Yuck. I bet there is one embarrassed utility worker.

Winter Sky is a beautiful stamp. It can be used for many things. Thank you for sharing it.

I read that Yuma was in that outage....crazy! Someone better be figuring out why it wasn't contained to a small area!

Lovely, lovely card....great color, Jill.

You are the first person I thought of when I read about the power outtage! Glad it wasn't longer than 5 1/2 hrs. but I do know what you mean about no power in Arizona-especially Yuma!! Lovely card Jill-that stamp is amazing:)
