    Jennyfur, I’m really happy to see your site becoming more interactive. I plan to play this week, but I have a request…..I have a grand total of ONE PB stamp, which I will use this time, but could you suspend the PB requirement, at least for a little while, so that others like me can play? Thanks for considering….

    LOVE Ashley’s card and can’t wait to give it a try!

    So glad to see your blog…..looking forward to some good tips, ideas, etc. I have several Penny Black stamps and just yesterday, used an older one (Warbler) for the bird I needed on a Christmas card. It worked perfectly for what I needed and shows they are versatile and timeless!!!
