  4. i love Penny Black stamps. I have quite a few. Right now, I am playing with a stamp that has double hearts on stems (Pash 2823K) which has been one of my favorites for awhile. I love hearts! I have been a follower of your blog for a long time.

  10. Both cards are really gorgeous and very inspiring, and shows just exactly what love is all about.
    My favoritOenny Black stamp? That´s a really tough one, as I love sooo many of them. I´ve long wanted to get the Backseat Witch and dressed to scare, but decided, I didn´t really had any chance to use them, as we don´t have Halloween here, but I also just love all the hedgehog- and cowstamps very much. And then they have some pretty awesome sentimentstamps too, so there´s a lot of favorites, I must say LOL.
    Have a great day everyone and lots of fun.

  12. What gorgeous cards and the stamp set has such pretty images! I also love the Toadily set! :)

  13. hard to choose - Bunny Bath or Basket of Smiles plus that love Song, if I have to choose one of those it will have to be Basket of Smiles - really really versatile. If I was to choose a stamp set it would have to be Toadily.
    I'm a follower of yours & also of Kath's.

  16. I only have a few P B stamps, but my favourite one is Daisy Pattern background stamp - it is so versatile

  17. What a hard question to answer with so any on my wish list, so I will give just a few, and in no particular order , garden slumber, teddy daisy chain, overdressed duck, garden greetings or is that hedgy greetings there are so many I love and covert I can never remember the names and thats before I start on all the fab flowers stamps and sentiments, Penny black just spoils you for choice.I guess I will have to live a couple of hundred years to hav e everything on my wish list and win a lottery jackpot a few times too.
