Good morning all - well I tell you what - I feel so much better for some sleep! Those of you that visit often will know I went away for the weekend with my two girlies on a guide/brownie 'holiday'. We stayed in a timberlodge that was pretty glorious - even had its own sauna - but it still had paper thin walls and was full of giggling girls! That aside it was a fabulous weekend - here's a couple of pictures to show you....
The first picture shows Penny getting a 'swing' from a guide and a brownie - and the second one shows Lucy doing her first ever sewing - she made a rabbit glover puppet and then used it with some other girls to put on a 'play'. Fabulous fun was had by all - and would you believe I even got chance to try my hand at knitting - it was my first attempt in 28 years!!! Blimey! Anyway - I suspect I may be showing my make on here so you're just going to have to wait!!!!
Onto todays card - thankyou for your patience!!!! This little chap is a digi by Crafty sentiments designs and he's called Christmas Penguin:
Isn't he a sweetie pie? My card has followed a sketch at CC and CC. I've used LOTV papers and sentiment and the snowflakes are spellbinders. The image is coloured with promarkers.
I'd like to enter my card into the following challenges:
: Christmas Easel
: feeling blue
I got a nice surprise when I got home too - a parcel from the fabulous Elaine Wheeler of wheelerscraftiness
- thanks Elaine - will email you! Also two stamps from the new CSD launch including the christmas dress one which I just loved to bits - so thanks guys!
I'm still trying to catch up from my weekend away - but I will get there! Thanks for visiting as ever and for any comments you choose to leave!
