Chilly Days

christmas card nontraditional colours featuring penguin holding garland of stars
it is getting colder, but not quite cold enough for snow. i squeezed in some time to create another christmas card; this was such a fun image to colour, as usual, with distress inks. i used liquid pearls for the snow dots, stickles on the stars and ground, and punched three different snowflakes and then distressed the edges. i’m submitting this to:

the paperlane challenge – snowflakes and sparkle
crimbo crackers – make it sparkle
stamping scrapping challenge central – christmas/holidays challenge; tim holtz distress ink pads can be found here
samuel taylors crafts challenge  –
christmas cards; this month’s prize is a Martha Stewart Double Craft Punch “Icelandic Snowflake”

thanks for popping by.

edited: since i use wordpress to blog with, i can’t always link up to challenge blogs that limit participants to those who use blogger; for the same reason, i can’t always ‘follow’ blogs i’d like to or get updates.
