Well, if you are wondering we are still having rainy days and when I mean rainy...I mean pouring like 24/7. The weather forecast is pretty glum, but now I have more time for my little hobby when we go home directly after the work and kindergarden.. :) So there is something good about rain :)
I see many cards already made for Christmas holidays and I kinda like it, although it can be rather crazy when you are ordering Christmas things in the middle of August like I used to do at my previous work. Now I don't have many clients with Christmas things (I work in the import department of a retail company), but my colleagues go through the same thing right now....Christmas balls and tinsels in August, bring it on, we will pretend to be in Australia :) but neverthless I like Christmas cards sooo much, so when I recently won the Instagram giveaway by my lovely crafty friend Jocelyn Baltazar (@creationsbyjoce) I jumped with joy because it was Christmas set by Lawn Fawn (http://www.lawnfawn.com/products/toboggan-together)..And guess what, yesterday I came home to this:
She is so kind, she made a card and sent beautiful sequins, and she is like all my crafty friends and that is why I love this little crafty world...You find friends in the most unusual places of our Earth ;)
And that is how this evening while browsing cartoons online to watch with Stellina, I came out with the idea of a card which was easy to make...I embossed sentiment Happy Holidays in white several times and one time in sparkly black and stamped and colored little penguin and his hat, put some baker's twine in red and white, placed it on red coloured card and guess what...One Christmas card done... I feel proud of it and love it, although the photos are terrible...I will work that somehow eventually....
I was pretty much inspired by this poster:
I am applying my card for the following challenges:
Hope you like my little penguin and now...back to Autumn and falling leaves :)
