Today was another lovely summer's day and I spent it with OH and our granddaughter (did the dishes and two loads of washing while he painted her face)this morning and then she and I went to a friend's house to have a craft session. There were 5 of us today. I just coloured images, one girl did a Bunka embroidery picture and her daughter did some cross stitch, while the two others made cards, Layla played with some toys and coloured in some pictures. I made sure the face paint came off before we left home!!!
A trip out for tea with two of our sons and our future DIL, hubby went off with them shopping and I took Layla with me to choir practice. She was funny singing along while she was colouring in and when we stopped she filled in the gap between songs still singing away without even realising we were all having a smile and a bit of a giggle. So cute...
So I'm very late and better get on with posting my card,
Here it is, not sure it is quite what I wanted to achieve. I decided not to use any DP on this one.
Basecard is a bright green from stash followed by a panel of SU Real Red another layer of green. I pricked some decorative corners and added some red bling. The penguin was a freebie image and I'm not sure I saved who it was from. If I find it, I will add it later. I coloured it with Copic Markers and used a white gel pen to define the flipper as it disappeared when I coloured it. The sentiment is from the Button Bear set I previously used this week. I used a couple of different size circle punches for the sentiment and also a larger punch for behind the penguin.
I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
Perfect Sentiments - PSC19: All Holiday and Seasons - Need to have the sentiment on the front and also add some paper piercing.
Christmas Inspirations - Challenge 41/2012 - Anything Goes
Phindy's Place Challenge Blog - Challenge #92 - Round and Round
Thanks for all the lovely comments I really appreciate the time you spend typing them and for stopping by to see what I've been up to.
Enjoy your day and happy crafting!
