A Trio of Penny Black Cards

I hope you all had a great weekend. Ours started with our first snowstorm of the year on Friday. It was so bad that we couldn't drive down our hill. I had to pick up my girls from school and we trekked up our hill while fighting the winds and cold. It was a beautiful sight, reminded me of Narnia, but we were glad it was a short walk. :)

We were also without power for most of Friday and some parts of Saturday, so I wasn't able to post some cards I had meant to post. So we spent most of that time reading (thanks to our charged Kindles!). And speaking of reading, I was so disappointed that The Book Thief, which is advertised as a young adult book, is loaded with cuss words. I was reading it to my girls when I realized it (thankfully I was doing the reading, so I skipped the undesirable words), but we like to take turns. I guess we'll have to shelf that one and look for another book to read together.

Anyway, I have a trio of cards that I made using some Penny Black stamps and papers today. The main image is PB Skyline and the sentiments are from Hot Rod. The papers are PB Madison. I used Madison papers in all three and inked the stamps with coordinating colors. Here it is n red and aqua.

Here it is in golden yellow. I love the turquoise and golden yellow combo. I highlighted the banner sentiments with Want2Scrap pearls.

And the olive and turquoise combo. It is hard to see, but these layers were mounted with Scrapbook Adhesives by 3L foam squares to add more depth.

Have a great week, friends! We anticipate more snow this week, but hopefully we won't lose power again.
