Hey, hey! Only 42 more days till Christmas! I'm really looking forward to this time of the year - it's my favourite!!! :) I can't believe I haven't done any Christmas shopping yet though. Eeeek!!! I'm running behind - again. *sigh* Have you done any yet?
I'm also running behind with my Christmas cards - almost feels like a deja vu. Each year I start early to avoid this Christmas rush, but then when December comes I'm still not ready. :S Oh well, I still have some time left to make a couple.
Here's the one I made a couple of days ago for the Crafty ribbons challenge that just started today. Our theme is "anything goes with ribbon" so I hope many of you will come play with us. As I said, I made a Christmas card.
I soooooo love this adorable penguin (he goes by the name "Pickle" :D) from Wild rose studio. Everytime I see this cutie I get the "awwwww" moment. lol I colored this little fella with distress inks and I added glitter glue on the white part of the hat. The star cardstock I used for the background is from Folia and other than that I only used plain white, red and kraft cardstock from my stash. I used my scissors to distress the edges. Some pieces of white cardstock were embossed with Cuttlebug's swiss dots embossing folder and then inked with copper stamp pad and on the "square" piece of white cardstock behind Pickles I stamped with Stampabilities' faded text background stamp and then inked the edges. I used several different dies on this card - Labels one, Labels one small and Fancy tags are Spellbinders dies, the swirl is cut from one Marianne design die and poinsettias were made with La-La Land die that I received from my sweet, sweet friend (she knows who she is). Thank you bunches!!! In the middle of each poinsettia and on the tags I added a pearl from my stash. I also used summer breeze ribbon - zipper red from the Crafty ribbons store.
We're looking forward to seeing your creations with ribbons! :)
