Merry Christmas!!!

Merry Christmas everybody!

Apologies for my absence - two weeks of no posting is very naughty of me, I'm surprised I got so many  presents on Christmas Day lol.

Anyway I have a Christmas card to share with you on this cold Monday.

I am really really pleased with how this turned out which is very unusual for me!

Here is a close up of the gorgeous LOTV penguins image:

For this card I have used:
  • LOTV penguins stamp
  • Pink Petticoats dots paper in ocean
  • Wild Orchid Craft roses
  • Promarkers
  • Crystal Stickles
  • Gems and a charm from Bunny Zoe Crafts
  • And a printed sentiment from the computer.
I decided on Mam and Ian instead of Mam and Step dad cos I think it sounds weird for some reason lol. Anyway Mam was really pleased with it so Im happy lol!

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Totally Gorjuss - For Someone Special (My family are pretty special to me!)
Passion for Promarkers - Anything Goes
Fussy and Fancy - Snow
And Stamptacular Sunday Challenge - Snow Much Fun

Hope you all had a fabulous Christmas! Off to visit more relatives!

  4. Ooh, I love the subtle colours you've used on this image, Rachael!! :) Mine (not got it on the blog yet) was for a little one so the brighter the better but it works so well like this, especially with the gorgeous pale papers and flowers!! :) Love the charm, too- I bought a few (alright, quite a few!!) similar but seem to have totally forgotten to use them as eveything got done in such a rush in the end!! :S Ah, well, next year!! ;)
    Know what you mean about the 'Step-___' thing, too- you wouldn't call them that so why write it, right?! :)
    hugs, Rachel xxx
