Penny Black Saturday Challenge

Hi there,
Penny Black Saturday Challenge for this week is to use a bargain stamp. Here is the card I've put together. The Penny Black stamp I used is one of my favourites which I managed to re-buy. The first one I bought some years ago got damaged with time, but I was lucky enough to find another one for a good bargain price, whoopee!! I decided to keep the card very simple as the stamp speaks for itself. The cow-spot are all hand-drawn. Thanks for stopping by and have a nice evening!
Hugs, Vittoria

My first post, wow!!

Hi there, my old and new friends and welcome to my brand new blog! As some of you know, I've been toying with the idea of creating my own blog for quite a while now and I finally seem to have found the courage to step out of my comfort zone. I'm not an expert at all so please forgive if my web pages look dull and quite spartan!! I'm still learning how to personalize my pages, and I guess it will take some time before I have the hang of it. So comments, advice and suggestions are MORE than welcome!!
I have a baby card I want to share with you today - I made it for my neighbour's son who had a baby boy a few months back and I love it. Brown and blue is one of my favourite colour combinations, that's for sure. I used a Happy Hoppers stamp called Sleepy head which I coloured with Copics. Papers, ribbon and button are from my stash. Spellbinders dies were used, too, for the focal image and the sentiment which is computer generated.
Thanks for looking and I have more of my creations to show you in the next few days, so stay tuned!! If you like, don't forget to leave a comment! See you!! ;-)
