Love me, Love my Penquin


Is anyone else having problems leaving comments on Blogger, sometimes is wont let me write in the comment box, its not even the same blogs different ones each day, most annoying when you're trying to catch up.
Anyway back to my card today, its called Snowpals from Mo Manning and I've used quite a bit of Flower soft mixed with fun flock to make the fuffly edging on their clothes. The papers are Doodlbug and once again I used my upside down grass die from MFT this time though I go around to getting the glamour dust out to make it icy.
My snowflake is from Simon Says Stamps and yes I have double layered can't stop doing it now and I finished it with a star button I found in my button box.
It's been a bit of emotional roller-coaster of a week so far but I did get into my craftroom yesterday but soon gave up when everything went wrong, stuck the things on the card the wrong way round, split glamour dust everywhere, dropping things constantly, it got to a point that after what seem hours I made two very simple cards. So hung up my craft pinny and went and watched telly!!!!!!!!

This card sort of made itself, I was so impressed that the Be Joyful stamp set from Simon Says Stamp has a snow falling stamp I had to use it again, using WOW embossing powder. I then made I saw that I still had some Be Joyful trees left over from another project so I decided to make a little scene with my Lawn Fawn Winter Penquin. 
I've used Chevron Clouds and I saw one of team-mates using clouds this way so I thought it would stop it looking plain. My snowdrift was made with the Curved Border from Spellbinders. To finish I used the sentiment from the Merry Trees stamp set and some Stardust Stickles.

So now it's YOUR turn.  Happy Crafting

In the Pink


Snowflakes is the new challenge on Everybody Art which will help my Christmas card tally. Poor Mo's Winter Fairy Halla I've made him into a girl so I could use pink.
I've used the Stately Circle from Spellbinder again to frame my image and I've used the MFT Flourish die to replace the swirls I had cut off the image. I've used the Memory Box frostyville border with Maryann Snowflake from Simon Say Stamps. Upside down grass die and to finish some glitter and flower soft with fun flock.
Do pop over and check out the team.

Winter Wedding


I know I hadn't been sleeping well so when the alarm went this morning I turned it off to have an extra five minutes, hour and half later I woke. I think under the circumstances I will allow myself that.
It does mean that my body has woken up by my head is still trying to get back to sleep and I'm not sure which drafts are for what but I do know that out of the three wedding cards one had to be rejected and its this one!
My couple has to be one of my favourite wedding images and its from Tiddly Inks, the papers are from Echo Park. The couple are inside a Stately circle from Spellbinders and one of my mats are headed with a Joy die.
The snowflakes are Simon Says Stamps and yes they've been layered twice. The sentiment is from WOJ and I've used the Stampin Up punches.

Pure Innocence


I have to thank my lovely Gretha my team-mate from Mo's Dream Team for the idea of using the Poppystamps stamps has a border, love it so much I'm sure this will be used again before Christmas.
My little angel is a Pure Innocence and those papers are Doodlebug again.
The sketch if from Freshly Made Sketch for this week although I love how this turned out, I feel it should have a sentiment or ribbon. Trouble being I couldn't find a sentiment small enough, pretty sure I have one somewhere, as for the ribbon just couldn't work out where. Still it is cute and another card done.
Once again I'm pleading with Mr Blogger to post my schedule post, we should be back sometime today.

Wrap up a Friend


You must be sick of Christmas cards, I know I am but I'm still struggling on and this weekend won't help the tally but love ones are more important. So I reckon I will be still making and posting cards on the last posting date.
My version of CAS is the order of the day although I must get over sticking two snowflakes together to make them stand out better. Of course my cute critters are Penny Black well it is Saturday after all. Papers are Doodlebug why didn't I get two packs cos I do love the papers for cards.
Upside down grass die from MFT for the Icicles, snowflakes an old Cuttlebug die and the stars are on the same die.
Some Stickles for snow so the the critters are grounded and not floating in the air.
Fingers crossed Mr Blogger will post this for me on Saturday since we will be probably somewhere on the M40. They are also crossed that things are not as bad as we think but I've sneaking feeling they could be.
Just in case any would be burglars are reading my blog, the house isn't empty since DD still lives at home and  is looking forward to some peace and quiet to study for an exam.

Snowfalling bear


Finally after making Wedding cards and DT commitments just a card for Christmas. I've used the sketch from Mojo Monday, love how they work for busy cards as well as CAS. Saying that although my card looks busy with the different papers it was a case of mat and layer with just a large snowflake.
So of course my cute image is James the Bear from LOTV, the papers are Lily Bee but pretty sure they're not available now.
My snowflake is from Simon Says Stamps and the button in the middle is actually one cut out from MFT  and yes I layered them both twice. Sentiment is from LOTV.
Not sure I will get into my craft room today will see how I feel but really should be resting ready for the car journey tomorrow, but the postman brought me the Simon Says Stamps kit and I'm so tempted.
