Oh Goodness Gracie!

Hello!  Welcome to another week with Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge #140!  I have a real beauty for you this week, Gracie by StampArt Designs by Kathryne...

Isn't she just adorable sitting on that fence?  A real pleasure to color, too!  StampArt has many more of the most wonderful images for you.  OH almost forgot, the sentiment is a bonus file when you purchase Gracie!  Pretty cool, huh?

Our theme this week at Penny's is "lace and/or ribbons."  A real fun one because we can get all girly!  Unless your guy likes ribbon and lace!  True!  I've done it...brown lace and tan ribbon, it worked! LOL  Back to Gracie and Penny's.  Hope to see you there this week!

I hope all is well with you.  We have had rain, rain, and more rain.  Wonder where our summer has been?  And we will be moving on to Fall creations soon! LOL

Blowing Dandelions

Uh Oh...forgot again!  Where has my brain been?  Hubby would say "what brain!"  Well, here now with another challenge from Penny's Paper-Crafty!  Yay!  The theme this week is "dry embossing."  As you'll be able to see from my card, not much embossing except on the leaves of the die embossing supplies.  Oh well.  I hope you like it anyway!  The digi is called "Blowing Dandelions" and it's done by Digi Darla.  

Hope to see you at Penny's this week!  Until next time, I wish you all the best...
