Hoppy Day to You!

Today I'm bringing to you another adorable Penny Black card.  

This little farmer boy is a stamp named "Hoppy Day".

Now if anyone reading this raised a little 'outside' boy, you can really relate to this image.  We've all had our little fellows come home with buckets of 'finds' that usually included something that jumped or slid away unexpectedly!  The artist has definitely captured a daily event that will truly bring a happy memory and a smile to the recipient of any card made with this image. 

My card is Copic colored and I used the Memory Box Matinee Rectangle Dies for the decorative edges on the image and the dark chocolate background.  The sentiment is stamped from Penny Black Special Thoughts. The 5 1/2" card base is covered with a wispy green paper. Then the image, with backing, and the sentiment are securely added to the base.  Lastly I added the black gingham ribbon bow at the fold to complete the card. 

Thank you for stopping by today to view my blog.  I enjoy sharing my work with you and invite you to “Follow” my blog and to visit my site ~ “Not Just Scraps” on Facebook ~ where you can purchase my cards.
