Thinking of Christmas Again?!?!?

Can't believe I ended up making a Christmas card when I haven't finished Michelle & Blue's Wedding card!! Well, this is not a 'less is more card' tonight - needed to get everything out (not that it is ever put away for long). Not sure whether I'll be posting much over the next week as the wedding cake is going to take priority, my last task for the wedding plans and as I have made so very many over the last 30 years I best make it a good one.

So onto my card. I bought this stamp 2nd hand just recently and I love it because when you look at it, you can see it is quite versatile, for instance you could cut them out individually and arrange differently on your card but tonight I've decoupaged their arms and song sheets. This is a PB image called Carolling Penguins which I've used Promarkers to colour, used Glamour dust on their hats and polar white flower soft for the snow. I'm entering this card into the following challenges.

A Spoon Full of Sugar - Anything Goes

Pear Tree Designs - Stamped Image

City Crafter Challenge- Stripes & Polka Dots

Truly Scrumptious - Anything Goes

Paper Play -Sparkle Galore

Hope you like it. Jeanette
