Christmas Card Club - "Penguins and Sparkle"

Good morning all.

Final day of our trip around the North Coast 500 here in Scotland....the washing machine will be taking a hammering later!

Kate has picked the theme this week over at the Christmas Card Club and she's asked to see penguins and sparkle.....my favourites!

A new stamp and die set from Lawn Fawn, coloured with promarkers. The penguins have been die cut several times to add dimension. I used stickles on the hats and lamp to add sparkle.

If you'd like to see what the other girl's have made you'll find their links in my side bar.

Christmas Card Club - "Magical and Mystical"

Good morning all.
Huge apologies for not being around, I'll catch up with you all soon hopefully.

Wedding is all over...it went really well and we had a lovely day. Hubby and I are off this week to drive the North Coast 500,looking forward to some time away from home after all the wedding prep and building works of the last few months.

I'm late, I'm late.....

This should have been posted yesterday (and two weeks ago) but my computer packed in straight after the wedding and isn't fixed yet. What a struggle to use DD's laptop which doesn't take a memory card to upload photos from my camera!

I've got two cards to share today... Rachel set us the theme of  "Magical and Mystical" for our latest challenge. I struggled a little with this as my mojo has gone astray and I was short on time to get inky...this is what I came up with.

Combining old with new....backing card from Kanban and new dies from Crafter's Companion and a sentiment from Penny Black.

Two weeks ago Christine set us the theme of "The True Meaning of Christmas", I'm playing catch up so here is my card.

Same card from Kanban used with a stencil from STAMPlorations and a sentiment from Clearly Besotted.
