Mother Goose

Over the weekend I got two packages in the mail.. It was like my birthday all over again.  One was a shipment I got from Penny Black.  I sure do love their caricatures.  If you haven't noticed I am a colorer.  (Is that a word, well it is now!).. I love to stamp images and color them.  Penny Black stamps are just perfect for that.

My second package is blog candy I won from Cheryl from Sweet Designs.  The loot was fab.  Stop by her blog and check out her coloring.  It is soooo awesome.  She is quite the talent. So between both of these I couldn't wait to get started.

I used one of my new stamps called Easter Bonnet.  How appropriate. huh?  I even went deep into my stamping tools stash and used my Making Memories hand tool die punch with the 5/8" cutter and made the slots for the ribbon.  I hadn't used that is so long I almost forgot I had it.  I need to use it more.  I have all the different cutters.  There are three diff. sizes for ribbon and a knotch 1/2 circle thing.  Does anybody know what you use that for?  I am going to need to do some research on that one.

Those cute little roses buds on MG bonnet are items that I got from Cheryl's blog candy.  Aren't they adorable.  It was perfect timing.  THANKS CHERYL. 

So here is my Mother Goose card.

Here is a close up of those cute lil rose buds.

The knotch (notch) 1/2 circle thing makes a tab to hold a card closed or a closure for a matchbook-like thingy. I'll email you a pic of a card I made long ago that has one.
