A Special Delivery!



Guess what I received in the mail today!!??    Happy Mail!    🙂    You may recall a few days ago that I was VERY excited about the new Penny Black holiday stamps??   You can find my post here, in case you missed it.   Needless to say, my stamps arrived today!  

I have to tell you these are really awesome stamps ~ they’re called slapstick stamps.  They are deeply etched red rubber mounted to EZ Mount that has been stamped with the image, which works out great to be able to line up your image.   I really love this new stamp format ~ a great impression on my first try too!




This adorable little girl is called Winter Swing.  I love all the little holiday accessories she’s wearing ~ so typical of little girls at this age.  

The dp used is from a company called ADORNit, Holly Jolly Collection – Shouting Stars (appropriate name!).  I added some Golden Rod Stickles to all the stars.   The ribbon is from my very generous friend America – it was originally red and white stripped, but I used my Y11 Pale Yellow Copic marker to change the white to yellow!   It works really well, AND it also helps to make the ribbon a little stiffer and easier to tie into a bow.  

I know today is Halloween, but I just couldn’t wait to ink up this cutie pie!   I do have a Tilda Halloween card and treat bag today on My Magnolias blog, if you’d like to take a peek!  



Thanks for visiting ~ Hope you have a safe holiday today!   

Hugz ~ Mary
