Christmas is only 178 days away...!!

Ok, so all non crafting people are sat there still waiting for the UK Summer thinking that Christmas is still a long way off but in the card crafting world it's time to make a start on the Christmas cards.

I have made a couple of cards which I will post later but here is one of them.  The digital image is by Alice Smith of www.clipart4resale.com  This is a lovely site for inexpensive digital images both coloured in or just the outlines.  I picked the outline image and coloured it in using promarkers.

The card stock is all from my stash which I have had for a few years now and I used a sizzix embossing folder to get the dots.  The snowflakes are from a Marks & Spencer gift card I was given and I have added gems to them. The holly is from a little hand punch and again I have added gems.

The wording was just printed from my computer. I used a scallop edged card for this one:


Here is a close up of the penguin:

  21. I love the penguin image and your colouring is fab! Like others have said, I'd like to have a summer before I start my Christmas cards but it may be Christmas before we see any sun so perhaps I should do as so many of you have done now and make a start on my Chritmas cards too!!!
