Penny Black - Truly Great Friends

 Sometimes at night, when the family go to bed, I take myself off to The Studio, put aside Design Team work and create just because I can!!  Sometimes times gets away from me - but we won't go there! LOL!

I have used one of the Truly Great stamp set from Penny Black Inc.  Stamped using
IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® VersaMagic™ Chalk Pigment Ink in 

Some flowers from my stash have been added - these are off some artificial flowers I found at one of the thrift stores - love that!  Oink lace has been added, followed by narrow white ribbon.  The pearl bling is from my stash that has gathered along the way.

The Houndstooth background stamp is from My Fun Stampers Journey
and has been stamped using IMAGINE Crafts®/Tsukineko® Memento Luxe™ Mixed Media Pigment Ink in Rose Bud.  I have also used Scrapbook by Adhesives by 3L- 3D Foam Squares and E-Z Runner Adhesive.
