The heating is on and football is cancelled....

Hope everyone is well. Its so cold today that I put the heating on as soon as Adam left to play football.  Next thing I know he's back because the game is cancelled but luckily he headed straight for the thermostat and turned it up some more which is not like him so it must be cold.....

I started this first card a couple of weeks ago and no, I don't really want it to snow:


The words have been cut out of red card using my Cameo and then I glued Christmas paper to the back of the card. The little penguin is also a Cameo image. Snowflakes added and glittered although you cannot see the glitter at all on this picture.

This next card I have not added a sentiment to so that it can be used as a Birthday card or Thank you card etc:



This is a Tumble Tizzy digi image which I coloured using Promarkers. I may add something more to the card as I am not completely happy with it but I will leave that for another day.

  9. Great little penguin, and I'm also a fellow Cameo fan Is that also a Cameo shape on the Tizzy Ted card - if so I'm suffering from shape envy! Happy Hopping xxx
