Christmas Penguins 2017

Hello All

Sharing some more Christmas cards with you, the same but

I've used Tonic and Presscut dies, Britannia word die and falling snow embossing folder, with some added distress inks ...naturally.

Baby Card

Hello All

We have a bit of a nip in the air don't we, does that mean winter in here?

One of my nieces asked to go to a baby shower with her, I've never been to one and didn't know what sort of card to make or what to expect AND she didn't give me a lot of notice in fact it was just a week but I did know it was going to be a boy.

I don't do quick cards( it doesn't come but managed to come up with this after spending a few hours on pinterest and was really happy how it turned out.

The image is a digi called Bambino, the papers are LOTV with a few dies and a Martha Stewart Punch.

Thanks for your visit, really appreciate it.
