Penguin Christmas

Hi everyone, hope your week has gone well. My inspiration and motivation is still on sick leave and I can't find Mr Mojo anywhere.... so I decided that I should try and make a card to incorporate a few challenges.

Following a sketch and themes of christmas, penguins, embossing, twine and CAS design this is what I came up with. The image is one of my (many) LOTV toppers, the card is embossed with a Die'sire petite dots folder, twine and sentiment are from my stash. You wouldn't believe how long I sat with a vacant expression on my face before I actually began to make this card !!

I shall enter it in the following challenges
Lili of the Valley Monthly challenge 'christmas in August'
Sketch Saturday challenge 'sketch'
Winter Wonderland challenge 'anything goes  for christmas'
Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas challenge 'animal +/or bird'
ABC Christmas challenge 'P for penguins'
Creative Card Crew challenge 'embossing'
My Mum's Craft Shop challenge 'clean and simple'
Let's Craft and Create challenge 'ribbon or twine'

Thanks for popping by and if you'd like a chance to win my candy please check out the post at the top of my blog here

Oh, boy, am I ever familiar with that vacant-eyed pose, Andrea! But you rallied like a champ and did a fabulous job showcasing that sweet topper!! Hugs, Darnell
