Penny Black Christmas



Every year I say that I am going to start my Christmas cards early and every year after Thanksgiving, I am rushing to get some done. This year, I have actually started them and have quite a few of them completed. When I was in Indiana a couple of months ago, my favorite stamp store in the world, Papertrix,  was having a sale on Christmas stamps, so I grabbed a couple, who am I kidding, I grabbed a few, including this cutie from Penny Black. 

I attended a class this weekend and made an awesome hand bound book. I was surprised how nice my first attempt looks. Normally when I am learning something new, I never show the first one, but this book has already been shown off!

Have a great day!
