More Holly with Penny Black

I hope you've had a wonderful Christmas.

We had a wonderful, busy time here.

I managed to get another Christmas card done in all that busyness.

I like to join in the Penny Black Challenges and I'm just going to make it in time!

Anything Goes with a stamp


where Di and the gang are celebrating a 4  year anniversary.
And as Di always does it up in style, there are several prizes available.
My holly was cut from snippets of  brown, green and red.
And the snippets bags are still over full!

No Merry Monday this week.

We'll be back next Monday.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hope you had a lovely Christmas, Bonnie! This is just beautiful! Didn't get any cards made using that die for this year, but I sure need to for next year! So glad you joined us at PBSC!

Bonnie, at this busy time of the year, finding a bit of time to escape to our craft rooms and create is totally therapeutic, it recharges our batteries to keep on track for the last parties of the year.
I love this beautiful and festive card, the embossing folder gives this Holly branch the perfect background to shine, it's just so lovely.
Sending hugs and best wishes to you and your family for a Joyful and Healthy 2016!!

One of my favorite PB dies, and you've showcased it superbly against the embossed background. Simply stunning. TFS & Happy New Year

Oh, snap! This is going straight in the "Christmas cards for 2016" folder, Bonnie! It's an AWESOME design!! (Am I the only one who still uses "awesome?" I think it really says it all!) I hope you and Bruce have a wonderful New Year's celebration and all the best of everything in the new year!! Love and hugs, Darnell

Love the combination of embossed holly and die cut holly! A beautiful card using one of my favourite Christmas themes - so I'm pinning it to my Pinterest board for holly cards for future CASEing.

This is a very elegant card. Love the holly on holly look. I told myself I was going to work on Christmas cards this vacation..... I don't usually lie to myself this much. ;-)

I love this, Bonnie, and your embossing always makes everything look wonderful. I don't know why I never enter the PB challenges. I have a ton of their stamps and dies.
