Joie de Vivre!

Good afternoon!

Here's a card I have made for my niece who will be celebrating her third birthday this month.

I've used a Penny Black stamped called Joie de Vivre! (4052K). I can't help but smile when I look at this teddy and for that reason I am entering this card into the current Penny Black Saturday Challenge where the theme is "Desert Island Stamps". I think if I could only take one stamp to a Desert Island then this would probably be the one because whenever I felt down just looking at him would cheer me up!

I hope you are enjoying your weekend. My boys (the big one and the little one) are at a birthday party at the local soft play so we girls (me and the dog) are at home enjoying some piece and quiet.

Thank you for visiting my blog.

Hugs and best wishes. Clare xx

Hi Clare

A gorgeous image to take on your desert island!! Love the card you have made with it too.

Hopefully all the Penny Black stamp lovers would be on the same desert island and then we would be able to share as using only one stamp would get a bit boring after a while LOL!!!

Love Jules xx

Super cute! Lovely colouring for the sweet bear ;)
Your 'desert island stamp' thing made me laugh - I would have too much of an impossible choice just to take one stamp!!
Hope you had a good weekend, Rx
