Warm Winter Wishes

Well, it's Christmas Eve...all the hustle and bustle is winding down and whether you're ready or not, tomorrow is Christmas day. This is my absolute favourite time of year and I'm sending warm winter wishes to you and your family.

Aren't these penguins the sweetest little pair? Actually, the entire Penguin Pals set from Taylored Expressions is adorable. I stamped them with Memento Tuxedo Black onto Choice Snow White and coloured them with copics. I added lots of sparkle with three Spica glitter pens and coated the fur on the hat with sugar Sparkly fluff. This card was originally going to look like TESC115 but I ended up deviating a little...omitting a layer...extending a panel...you know how it is when creativity takes over! LOL!!!

I just love the bright cheery colours in the Doodlebug Winter Wonderland patterned paper, and the snowflakes are so sparkly too!!! I did my best to incorporate all those fun colours by cutting a vibrant pink snowflake with my Winter Wonderland Snowflake die. I also used my Scalloped Eyelet Border die on the blue strip and topped it with red glimmer twill.

I can't believe I'm saying this but I'm already looking forward to starting my 2011 holiday cards. For the past two years my mission was to make one holiday card per week...and you wouldn't believe the sense of satisfaction when December rolls around and I already have a slew of cards made. Why don't you join me this year?!? Trust me...you'll truly appreciate it next December. And I find the best motivator is new stamps to get my mojo flowing...so treat yourself to a new Christmas set or two and let the holiday card making begin!


Thanks for stopping by!
