Well I have had a lovely morning this morning as my darling hubby has looked after the children while I got some crafting done!  I have made 3 cards and edited my 2 DT posts for the weekend so I am all sorted now!  The first card I will show you is this cute little penguin!  Theothersyou will see when I find some challenges they fit into!

I didn't bring any Christmas backing papers on holiday with me or my Christmas embossing folders because I just wasn't going to make any christmas cards yet, but I couldn't resist using this little cutie siI just cut a square piece of whote card, embossed it with dots 3/4 of the way down, inked with red ink(I've run out of red card here too!!) and used a oiece of ribbon to patition the embossing and plain piece of the card.

Side view so you can see the inside too!

This image is called Penguey 3 and it is another of  Kelley Kid's digi stamps found at the Stitchy bear store.  I have coloured it in pro markers and glittered the fur on the hat

I created the sentiment on my computer and punched it out, inked it and attatched it to the smallest scalloped circle nestie.  The Snowflakes are Marianne creatable die cuts that I have inked and glittered and added gems and pearls to the centre

I will be entering this card into the following challenges

Thank you  for stopping by

Aw great card Nikki! My friend Gill would love this, she loves penguins!

The embossing looks fab. I really have to start using my Cuttlebug more to make some lovely cards like you have.

Well done!
