You're the Bestest...

Penny Black Stamp called 'You're the Bestest'
Hello Everyone,

Sharing one of many Penny Black stamps I have in my collection.  I love this adorable, happy and fluffy cat...the stamp is called 'You're the Bestest' one of my critter favorite stamps of Penny Black.  I colored it with Spectrum Noir pens. I had so much fun coloring it as it brought sweet memories and happy tears of my once loved Thomas.

I always enjoy embellishing my cards...with touches of dimension by using dry embossing folders this one is an Anna Griffin/Cuttlebug folder called Jolie Lace. My lace and burlap ribbon are from my stash I know I picked up at Hobby Lobby when they have their 50% off spools...they always have such pretty choices.My heart and round wooden buttons were a gift. The white pearl/silver medallion are by Recollections. The cute little love bugs are from my stash of sticker goodies. And those miniature flowers are from The Rubber Buggy an online site I found with a great choice of  pretty flowers and sizes along with great shipment processing.

To Die For--Dies Used:
Spellbinders - Shapebilities : Grand Labels One & Fancy Framed Tags Two
