Christmas penguins

Happy New Year everyone! I hope you had a lovely holiday period. We celebrated new year by standing on a giant rock in a church yard watching fireworks go off 360 degrees round and drinking champagne - it was lots of fun! I've also been extremely lucky to win two challenges this week from PaperArtsy and Lavinia stamps so I am a very happy girlie with lots of new crafty goodies on their way on top of the new stamps I got for Christmas :)

Apologies for Christmas cards after Christmas but I have a few that I made as gifts and didn't want the recipients to see before the big day which is why I'm showing them now :)


This card was made for my adorable and gorgeous nephew Elliot. I made it using a Lili of the Valley stamp and coloured it with promarkers. At first I didn't plan to use the brown but when I put it together it needed something more than the blue and I had this piece of ribbon with the brown in so I went back and mounted the other bits on brown too. Nobody could believe I had coloured it when they saw it and it got lots of lovely compliments.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Passion for Promarkers - Use a sentiment
Brown sugar - Use ribbon or twine
Card Makin Mamas - Anything goes
Craftitude - Anything goes/Christmas sparkle
Crafty Hands - Anything goes
Stampin with the dragon - Last minute Christmas
Sweet Pea Stampers - Anything goes
Happy Campers - Christmas
