Crafting for all Seasons #101 "Birthdays with Four of Something"

Good morning all. 
Is it just me or is blogger/Google Chrome playing silly beggars again not showing images properly...it's exceedingly annoying and time consuming!!

The weather has been quite nice so far this week...between the showers! Yesterday we went to view a property which has potential then carried on to see hubby's brother whose birthday it was, so not a lot of crafting going on here.

I was running very late getting my DT project made for today and it didn't help that I'd picked an image intending to make a Christmas card...realising too late I'd set a challenge of birthdays!!
It's our fourth birthday over at CFAS and we're celebrating with lots of sponsors (listed below) and a theme of "Birthdays with Four of Something".

Here is my offering...I went quite literal and made a small gift card for a "birth" day!

I've used Cuddly Critters Penguin from Dr Digis, coloured with promarkers and fussy cut then pieced back together after adding a nappy which I found in my stash. Dies are from Spellbinders. Four stars from my stash.

Our wonderful sponsors:

Challenges entered:

  14. Greast take on the brief! This is so darned cute.

    Sorry I have not been around to visit...this moving business takes its toll. It seems we finiish one project and D has another one planned...always ones that need a helper...teehee

    Oh well...we did downsize to have less work, but DH says if we do everything right the first time, it will never need done again! He is probably right...

  15. Just adorable Carol! I love the penguin in a nappy!
