More Learning Through Inspiration

I'm happy to be back on the Penny Black blog today continuing my study of Heather Telford. You can read about my adventures here.

Here's a snippet of one of my cards --

Hope you like it!


  1. Love learning with you Joan ! Wishing you wisdom to make the right decisions ♥

  2. I saw your card designs on the Penny Black blog. I think they are positively AWESOME!

  3. I just came from the Penny Black blog and, believe me, your two cards are absolutely beautiful! I think you were a little too critical of yourself this time. Just sayin'. I want to make cards like yours. You wouldn't believe how many hours I spent pencil coloring a card I'll share later at some point. No Gamsol. I used Neenah super smooth white only because I'd intended to Copic color and, yes, it is the wrong paper! I recently found some actual drawing paper in my closet and it sure does make a difference. It seems to me you're very good with pencils, Joan.

  4. I'm heading to the other blog post after this, but wanted to say that I am SO sorry you are having such problems with this pacemaker stuff. So not fair. I can only imagine the anxiety it provokes. I will keep my fingers crossed and pray for excellent health and peace when you are ready to make a decision as to what to do.

  5. Both your cards are stunning!!!
