Penguin Huddle

 Good morning, well December has arrived, and the countdown has really begun now! I went shopping yesterday- normal grocery shopping and couldn't believe how the shops have suddenly got so busy! It was difficult to find a parking space- which I hate- I'm not exactly the best 'parker' in the world and of necessity a bit picky when it comes to narrow spaces! It'll get worse before it gets better - the shops I mean, not my parking (I hope!!)

Today's card is for our new challenge at Crafty Catz, Rhoda is hosting and has picked the optional twist of 'Make an easel card ' Our lovely sponsor for this week is 


Visit Our Shop

I made a slimline easel. the base is silver crackle card which has a lovely icy look, which is perfect with my cute penguins and snowy scene. The penguins are coloured with Copic markers, The background sky is distress inks. I've added a die cut sentiment and snowflake border.

For more inspiration hop over to Crafty Catz to see what my lovely teamies have created with these lovely sponsor images.

Thanks for visiting

Your Aurora Borealis skyline makes a stunning background for these fun penguins and the snowflake border perfect as a stopper for your easel card

Morning Chris, what a lovely card, they look such a friendly 'bunch' haha, and your background is gorgeous.
As for shopping, well I can't get out again and its driving me nuts, but, if this infection clears I can try and escape the watchful eyes of my children, honestly, its nice to be cared about but 'give it a rest' hahaha.
Hope you have a good weekend.xx

Gorgeous slimline card, loving those cute penguins. I know what you mean about parking. Our cars are bigger and the spaces have definitely got smaller!! Impossible task!
