Penguins galore

Challenge time at Allsorts again where the lovely Emma has given us a great sketch to work with which I used to go all Penguiny....absolutely sure that's not a word but sounds good.

But before I share my card for this week, a reminder that there is still time to join in our sister challenge at Penny Black at Allsorts where the the theme is "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas". Lots of prizes on offer so please do pop over and join in.


I have made a card and matching box for a special grandson who loves penguins. The main image is Hero Arts K5260 Three Penguins, stamped and embossed three times, coloured with Copics and decoupaged onto a circle but with Nesties. The DP is Three Bugs in a Rug, punched snowflakes and a computer generated personalised tag sentiment. This card is also for the following challenges:


A spoonful of Sugar - Snow/snowflakes
Creative Cottage - Someone special at Christmas
ABC Challenge - H for Holidays (Christmas)
Secret Crafter - Sparkle and shine
Sweet Stamping - All about snowflakes

My next share is using another of the new Molly Blooms Christmas stamps........and another of those easel cards.......I really love this one and I think she looks just as good in her summer clothes. I used the My Minds Eye DP to paper piece her dress and placed her in a circle window cut with Nesties. I stamped Stampendous CRR123 into the window and added some punched butterflies as well a a corner using the same Martha Stewart punch. The sentiment is Penny Black 4075F. This card is for the following challenges:

Stamping for the Weekend - Sketch plus butterfly/s
Flutterby Wednesdays - Window card with wings
