Hello friends and followers, I hope you are all well today.
I am a little snowed under with everything at the minute-so many things I need to get done and somehow these darker nights aren't helping me want to craft at all. Also it seems to be one of those times when life is getting in the way at the minute and I can't seem to get enough time for my blogging either so huge apologies if I haven't left comments in the past week-hopefully things will get better next week.
I sat and coloured an image by artificial light the other evening, thinking it went well with the papers and then when I looked at it the next morning by daylight it didn't look right at all!!
My card today is made with a really cute penguin image from The Paper Shelter-which was coloured by daylight luckily.
I coloured him with Promarkers and layered him with a scalloped die cut circle and some Dovecraft Christmas papers. The edging strip at the top and the little stocking were cut with dies I was sent from a magazine for helping with an article last year and the poinsetta was cut with my new die-I was thinking it would be smaller than this but I guess I can just about get away with the size it is. The sentiment is from a freebie set:
I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:

Well thank you all so much for visiting today and for any comments left, I will try my best to get round and visit this evening.
Have a wonderful week and until next time.
