Warm winter hugs

Good morning! :) How are you doing? Are you redy for the spookiest night of the year? We were supposed to have a couple of friends over for dinner and chat, but I'm still not feeling well so we had to cancel. :( Even though I'm not a big fan of Halloween, I do like to get together with friends and chat a little. So I hope we'll soon have another chance to do so.

That being said, I might not like Halloween this much, but I LOVE Christmas. That's definitely my favourite time of the year. :) So I hope you are ready to see maaaany Christmas cards on this blog. ;) I'm about to show you one of them.

I made this card for the new challenge at the Sugar Nellie blog that started today. The theme is anything goes so you really have no excuse to play along. ;) Oh, you do need to use a SN image on your project though.


On my card I used one of my favourite SN images. I know they have maaaany cute ones, but there's just something about these adorable penguins that make me go all "awwww". I think I might have a thing about penguins ... You can buy this stamp here.


I coloured these cuties with distress inks and I added some Stickles on different parts of the image. I finally got to play with those gorgeous papers from DCVW that have been sitting in my cabinet for at least one year. *oooops* to decorate the card I used 2 different doilies, crystals, pearls cheese cloth and ribbons. All of these came from my stash. I raised the image on foam pads for some extra dimension.

Have a wonderful day! :) Hugs! xx

  4. Prihaja pač čas buč in čarovnic - ni nujno da si ljubetelj, te posrka vase.

    Tvoja praznična voščilnica pa je zopet ena lepotička z zelo fletnima pingvinčkoma :)! Komaj čakam kaj nam boš pokazala naslednjič.
