Christmas Card Club - Penguins

Good Morning and Happy Sunday. Today is our 25th and final Club Challenge for 2015, and is an Anything Goes challenge, chosen by our Zoe T of Stamping Scene. Let's get right on with it, shall we?





 
 
Since it's a busy time of year for all of us, I'll skip the product details, and say the image was colored with copics, WoS, used S/Binders dies, Impression Obsession small snowflakes, an embossing folder, and that's it! If there is anything specific you'd like to know about the card, leave me a comment and I'll do my best to answer.
 
We hope to leave for our daughter's soon, so trying to get things done around here for the year's end. I expect it's pretty much the same at your house, with the upcoming holiday. We had a nice tour of the Ikea Store, and got some more Alex cabinets. Be back soon to share some of the lovely cards we've received from some of our so-talented & so-generous Blog Friends.
 
Do have a wonderful day - it's sunny & pleasant here. Porch swing is down and covered for the season. We've had some amazingly lovely weather.
 
Do please check out what my fellow Christmas Card Club members have shared - it's always awesome - and their links can be find on the right hand sidebar! Big Hugs and be safe in all the hustle bustle that is everywhere this time of year. Thanks for your visit.

What a happy looking pair of Pengine's Mary, love how you have given them little red noses, the aqua blues work very nicely for a wintery card the the deeper mats peeking out really draw the eye to the focal element.

You just can't beat having a penquin or two to make a cheery card. The weather has been dull and foggy here today and dropped several degrees tonight . Hope you have a safe tip and an enjoyable Christmas. Hugs Mrs A.

I love these cute penguins Mary and the die cut frames they are sitting on are very pretty as are those snowflakes scattered about. The snowflake embossing makes a great base too. Hope you get your jobs done so that you can get off for a nice break with DD. I have had a very busy week too but the coming week is much quieter so hopefully will get sorted for Christmas myself soon. x
