Flamingo Thank You

Morning all. Sorry I have not been the greatest blogger over the last couple of months. My health hasn’t been to great and after trudging on with day to day life blogging has been one of the things to take a back seat and to be honest apart from some colouring in I haven’t really felt like doing a whole lot of crafting either. Plus I have been feeling so cold lately that a little colouring in is the easiest thing to do when sat huddled on the sofa under jumpers and blankets (and a hot water bottle too)…think I need a holiday in the sun.

Anyhoo, enough waffle, it’s my turn over on the Sarah Hurley 365 blog today and I’m sharing a thank you card.

Here is a sneak peak

Penguin Joy

Penguin Joy (4)

Afternoon all. I’ve been on a Christmas Card making run and I remembered I hadn’t inked up one of my favourite Christmas Stamps, Penguin Joy by Crissy Armstrong for Whimsy Stamps. Usually I am fond of non-traditional Christmas colours but this year I can’t seem to get enough red and green plus it goes very nicely with my current addiction to Kraft card.

 Penguin Joy (2)

Quite a lot of my Christmas cards for mailing are very CAS with no embellishments as they need to be easy to post. This one however is going to be hand delivered so I could go overboard with the embellishments. I’ve used some spider webbing, a charm, several die cuts, some roses and a poinsettia.

I do love Whimsy Stamps and Dies, the quality is fabulous so while I’m posting I thought I would throw my hat into the ring for the DT call they are currently holding, if you want to have a try hurry and look at the details here as the call ends at Midnight ET tonight (that’s 5am for any of us night owl UK ladies!!).

Supplies:

  • Image: Penguin Joy Rubber Stamp by Whimsy Stamps 
  • Colouring Medium: ProMarkers and Copics
  • DP: Little Darlings Christmas Papers (free with Papercraft Essentials 98)
  • Card: Copic Xpress It Blending Card and Kraft Card
  • Dies & Punches: Spellbinders Radiant Rectangle Dies, Lace Border Doily 1 die and Holly and Berries die
  • Embellishments: Spider Web, Card Candi, BEll Charm, Paper Roses, Paper Poinsettia and Glitter Glue
