As promised I want to share with you how I came to be a Guest at Penny Black and the amazing friendship that has developed.
Back in May Jill Foster, the Social Media Director of Penny Black Stamps, contacted me through THIS POST telling me she had an "opportunity" and asked me to contact her. Naturally I was thrilled!! Someone of Jill's artistic ability taking notice of my work was astounding to me!
Penny Black sent me a VERY generous amount of product to use for the cards I created for my four days in the spotlight. Jill assigned this week to me and the rest is history : )
Much to my surprise, and Jill's, we learned that we live only about 50 miles from each other. We quickly set up a "Crafty Saturday" along with a good friend of Jill's and a good friend of mine at we all met in Jill's home studio for a crazy fun day of crafting and laughing - some wild ink splattering! and getting to know one another. We all had so much fun that we plan to make it a monthly "Crafty Saturday" date whenever possible!!
Do you know Jill? Check out this UTube of a recent PB post where Jill talks about Art Journaling. You'll only have to watch a few minutes to see her sweet and playful personality coming out!! Friends, this talented lady is as kind and sweet inside as she is outside! I have had the opportunity to work with Jill several times now in her home studio ooooing and awwwwing over work and her beautiful baby girl and a beautiful friendship has formed. : ) I am definitely old enough to be Jill's mom but she doesn't seem to mind having an "old friend" and meeting Jill for me has been like finding a treasure!
A Treasure! which leads me to the sneak peek of my card for today. Please take a minute to stop in at Penny Black HERE and see what I've done with some awesome product from Penny Black today.
Thank you as always for stopping by! I hope you have a wonderful day!!
p.s. If you ever do get the chance to meet Jill and she invites you into her home and while you are crafting together Jill decides to do something creative like ink splattering.... TAKE COVER! heeheeheehee
