Good morning! My sister-in-law's get-away home is the perfect place to do absolutely nothing. The decision to be made as we live the day in our bathing suit and cover-up is what should we fix for dinner. We hear a car drive by once in a while; otherwise, we're by ourselves with nothing else but books, crossword puzzles, and fun conversation.

As many of you know, Dianne is totally obsessed with zentangling. This is a little canvas gift bag she applied her zentangling artistry to . . .

This gorgeous card is created by jbgreendawn. She used 4234K "mums the word" colored with copic markers and a white gel pen."

by Iwona Palamountain

'“Hello, my name is Iwona Palamountain and I have an immense pleasure to share some Penny Black artwork with you! I’m a stay at home mum to a 3 ½ year old girl and am awaiting another one any day now. I love crafting whenever time allows, preferably every day *smiles* and card making/stamping is my choice most of the time. Thank you Penny Black for the fabulous opportunity!”
Today Iwona is working with our T for Transparent set, 30-123 Fancy Flowers.  Paired with patterned paper from our Madison Designer Paper Pad, this card is bright, fresh, and fun!'
