Morning Peeps, it's the first Sunday of the month which means the start of our new challenges at We Love Stamping and Stamping Sensations where our themes are 'I love....' and A/G with a Winter Wonderland option. Prizes this month are Santoro dies and a scrapbook kit and dies and stamps from our lovely Parton Craftstash, so lots of reasons to join in.
Penguins just say cold snowy weather to me and my memories of cruising and seeing them in their natural habitat were it was all rather magical, so a bit of a Winter Wonderland. I have used AALL and Create Frosty and Penguin, an alcohol ink background with stamping from Reverse Stars and the little twigs come from Pinecone.
My second share uses all Lavinia stamps, a circle aperture, Oxides to build up the colour and of course lots of glitter. Although using it with Fairies wasn't my intentions when I created this stamp set, I think it goes quite well with a fantasy scene, it's from my Moments set available here and here.
As usual I forgot to share my card for the Card Chain Challenge. Many know I rarely enter challenges as I have failing vision so the only linking I tend to do is for my own challenges but I like to join in this one as the concept is rather different. This is the card I sent to my friend Marianne in Greece, it arrived quite quickly which is more than can be said for the one the previous month posted on 5th October and yet to arrive in Kenya.
Have a good Sunday.

Oh Brenda your cards are always so beautiful, the cards with the lavinia stamps are stunning and I love the one with the penguins.
cute, beautiful and gorgeous cards Brenda
Ciao Brenda, una bella carrellata di cards anche oggi!:) Tutte e tre sono deliziose, quei pinguini sono fantastici e spiccano così bene sullo sfondo! Grande idea inserirli nei cerchi appesi al filo come se fossero palline di Natale! Davvero cool! :)
I toni del lilla e del viola con quel verde luminoso nella seconda card sono deliziosi e naturalmente adoro i timbri di Lavinia, che bella festa nel giardino segreto! Il tuo sentiment è perfetto!!!
L'ultima card è la mia preferita di oggi, forse perchè non sono ancora entrata nel mood dell'inverno LOL :D Assolutamente adorabile con le calde tonalità, lo sfondo a stencil e quella mezza ghirlanda! Bellissima la scena con il coniglio e la fata sui fiori. Marianne in Grecia sarà stata sicuramente deliziata!
Un abbraccio grande, buona Domenica!
Three absolutely fabulous cards Brenda, I love them all especially the second one with the fsairies, toadstool etc. and the gorgeous lilac colouring - beautiful.

Absolutely gorgeous cards, I love your penguins, and the sentiment had me going AWwwww! Your Lavinia stamped card are stunning scenes, Love them.
Fabulous cards Brenda, those penguins are so cool!
Love the Lavinia ones, such gorgeous colours.
Three move fabulous cards Brenda - love the cute and cool penguins, with fab alcohol ink background, though my favourite has to be card 2 - love the colour combo in the background on that one.
Three beauties! Love the Lavinia ones and had a closer look at the 2nd to see how you made it; inspires me again! Alays strange with post... sometimes a card to the USA is there quicker as a card to the UK... Hope yours will arrive soon! Hugs, Gerrina
Those lovely penguins (and coordinating envelope) made me smile. We watched Happy Feet 2 over the weekend and seeing the penguins singing "Under Pressure" with the Walruses always has us roaring with laughter!! Love the mystical scene with the woodwind playing mouse and dancing fairy. Glorious colours on the last one and little Pippin is such an adorable fellow xx
Super cards with some fun stamped scenes. I love the fairy one :)
Three beautiful cards Brenda, each of them made me smile!! Beautiful colours throughout. It's a shame when something doesn't arrive at its destination at all! My friend paid £27 for a small parcel with tracking to USA which should have arrived early November. Still not there!!
oh these are gorgeous cards!
I love how you build up the texture and pattern on your cards, I am taking notes.
Super adorable penguin card and terrific layout too. I adore both of the Livinia cards. they have some of the cutest images.
Lovely CCC card, Brenda! I need get back on track exchanging cards. Love the penguin card!
