3 singing roosters - Penny Black Challenge

this was so fun to make! love this stamp!
fun and easy, quick card for the Penny Black Saturday Challenge.

Stamp: Penny Black's "Carolers"
Paper: do from stash, SU's red, black, white
Ink: Memento Black
Embellishments: ribbon from GinaK
Technique: embossing, matting, coloring with Copics

Tomorrow night 10pm CST/ 11pm EST - Blog Hop for GinaK's  "Festive Frame" set by Melanie! 
See you tomorrow night,

PS if you live near the Sight n Sound Theatre in Lancaster, PA or in Branson, MO - go see the Miracle of Christmas...you won't be disappointed - I've never seen anywhere all the live special effects they do...simply amazing!
We drove the 4 hours up in a bus loaned to us by a sister church, ate at the Good n Plenty Amish restaurant (which was true to its name)...then to the theatre - play is about 2.5 hours with a 15 min intermission- then the drive home. It was such a blessing - there were 22 of us on the bus and we sang almost the whole way home...everything from hymns, Christmas, praise, worship, kids sunday school songs....and since most of us can't carry a tune...we were amazed how good we sounded  LOL...that bus had pretty good acoustics  (LOL, I'm sure only the Lord and our deaf tone ears enjoyed our singing)...hope we get to do it again in the Spring. Their production will be the story of Joseph!

This is just TOO cute!! Love those chickens!
And I love Good 'N Plenty Restaurant (as well as Plain 'N Fancy!) I've never been to Sight and Sound but have heard great things about it!

Your card is adorable! It's great fun to get together with others and make a joyful noise!

Oh my! I love this card and want one just like it in the worst way. Now I've got to figure out where to find Penny Black stamps. Is the saying Penny Black too? This is too cute and clever! I have a friend who loves chickens and this would be so egg-static to get this card!

Michelle said...

Oh! And I forgot to say we live about 2-1/2 hours from Lancaster and took our boys to see Miracle of Christmas two years ago during the school break. So worth the trip! We saw Noah's Ark in Branson, MO when we were there on vacation this summer. Also amazing! And then Daniel a couple more years before the Christmas show. I bet Joseph will be well done too. Road trip! :)

This card is soooo cute.
Sounds like you all had fun. My dad,who could not sing a lick, always said the Bible says make a joyful noise unto the Lord.Doesn't mean you have to be a good singer.Trust me if you stood beside him in church it wasn't easy on the ears:o)....but he took the make a joyful noise part seriously!!!

Hi Linda,
This is a great card. Love the wee tartan ribbon - a bit of Bonnie Scotland. Glad you had a great time at the weekend. Sounds as though you all made "a joyful noise unto the Lord". I would love to have been there to join in.
Hugs,
