I love this image. Its from Daisie Company and was one of their friday freebies a few months back! Its sooooo cute.

All i did was decoupaged the penguin and matted and layered the image and the paper onto red card and added a few gems and ribbon. Easy!

Have been on a day off from work today to wait in for a delivery man..... They said between 12 & 6pm..... You just know its going to be 6pm dont you! So i have had to stay in and do the dreaded housework...... but still had a little time to craft!

Yes you've guessed it.....Another Sugar Nellie....I think i'm completely obsessed with these little cuties. Matted onto K & Co patterned card stock a couple of brads and the flowers are die cuts from hotp.

I will have to do some other cards now! I have all the Family Christmas cards to complete and still have masses to do for friends. So much to do and so little time...

Might not be on over the weekend as my step-daughter is here on Saturday and she kind of takes over the computer! And i don't fancy wrestling with her! ( LOL ).
