MONDAY: Ashley

They really are both beautiful! My first instinct was All Is Bright but I think I could really have a lot of fun with Marzipan Greetings!!!

TUESDAY: Michele aka Goat Girl

WOW I love Peace on Earth because it has such a great vintage feel! I’m making vintage-y Xmas cards this year so I would love to use Peace on Earth!

WEDNESDAY: Mary H.

Another set that will be hard to choose which one, but I’ll have to say The Gift of Love, primarily because of the little bird she is holding. Would love to use copics on either one, so thanks for the chance to perhaps win one of them!

When I started stamping, the reason was to make cards for cancer patients. That was several years ago. I love that I can make something that makes someone else feel good. I also happen to love the stamps themselves and how I feel when I see something new. I call stamping blogs “My happy place” lol.

Congratulations everyone! Please email info@pennyblackinc.com with your name, postal address, and which giveaway you won. Have a great weekend!
