Joan B. *Day 4*

I have to admit that I am REALLY bummed to see this week with Joan coming to an end.  She is one magnificent stamper and a total sweetie, too.  I just might have to invite her back!  Be sure to add her blog to your favs so you can keep checking out more of her art.  And speaking of her art, here's today's inspiration card:
Did your jaw hit the floor?  Mine sure did!
Now here is my take.  While it doesn't look just like the inspiration card, I can tell you that I was really inspired by Joan's design.  I love the stamping on the top portion of her main panel with the white sentiment strip below.  The twine is the perfect embellishment.  And the lovely light blue background provides the perfect "frame" for the center panel.

And here's the set, another Christmas gift ready to go. :)

All stamps Penny Black.

Thanks so much for visiting this week and for all of your sweet, sweet comments.
Hope you have a great weekend and I'll see you on Monday with a new PB&J Video.

I will have to say that is one of my fav's of Joan's, like how the sheet music fads in the center, and love all the different ones you did, such pretty colors
