Fun Friday with Patti & Penny #3

Oh my goodness where did this week go? and while you are searching - where did October go?!



Happy November everyone and welcome to my self proclaimed weekly event:

Fun Friday with Patti & Penny

That's me and Penny Black and some pretty terrific product that is new in the Welcome Winter 2018 release. 


For my cards today I focused on Red and White, my favorite color combination for holiday cards.

Card #1 uses the small spray of flowers from the Joyful Holiday #30-497 stamp set as well as the "Hello" from Holiday Hello #51-460 colored with Prisma Pencils.


Card #2 uses a sentiment from the new set called Christmas Bunch #30-520 as well as a couple of my "old" favorite products, Gingerbread Cottage #51-371 and Scrolls Half Edger #51-446.  I thought the scrolls made the perfect impression of swirling snow : ) tied up with some red and white Baker's Twine.



Card #3 uses a beautiful sentiment from the  Smile All Season stamp set #30-516 as well as another image from the Joyful Holiday #30-497 set - a sweet vintage mail box.  I added a dusting of Wink of Stella to the snow but unfortunately it doesn't show up in the picture. I used another one of my "old" favorite Penny Black products called Border Edgers #51-231 to simulate drifting snow that I attached with foam tape for added dimension.

All three of my cards were QAEP  -  quick and easy peasy!! : )

What are your plans for the weekend?  After a week of washing windows inside and out we are treating ourselves to a trip to El Paso where there is a HUGE craft fair going on.  : ) It was actually my husband's idea!! Yep! he's a keeper! : )

Have a wonderful weekend! and thanks so much for stopping by!


BIG (((HUGS)))

Such pretty cards, Patti. I adore the first one with the sprig in the almost wreath like orientation. So pretty! The monochromatic gingerbread card is so lovely. I like the texture and the tiny pops of color. Such a festive sentiment on 3rd card and the vintage mail box is so neat. I really like the texture on this one, too. Have an amazing time at the craft fair. I bow to you washing all your windows inside and out. That's a great accomplishment!

As always these cards are so very gorgeous. I love all of them. But I really love card #2. That gingerbread house and the lovely embossing and the pop of red with the twine is so cool. I love the colored wreath on the house too.

Spot on with this write-up, I actually suppose this web site needs much more consideration. I’ll probably be once more to read rather more, thanks for that info. bovada casino

Well you've showcased your new stamps perfectly, love your nice crisp red/white combo!
Hope you had fun at your craft fair, the one in Belfast is a bit rubbish so I haven't been for a few years :(
