Penguin Family

Penguin Family

A special card for the girl who coordinates my Book Club at the Winery.


Hi all! My Winery Book Club (cause, yes I go to two!) decided we wanted to give Abril, the girl who keeps our group straight at Crow Farm and Winery Book Club a monetary gift of our appreciation. So I was tasked with creating a card to put the cash in! I decided to use a layout I used for a bunch of cards I made to go with cookie boxes later this month. The single penguin in the set worked perfectly, paired with (what else?!) some hot foiled sentiments. Now, on with the Show& Tell….


I love this funny Santa penguin and his big bushy beard! I used Nuvo glitter drops on the band and pompom of the hat.


Wanting to coordinate the gems with the colors of the presents, I decided to use clear gems and color them with the darkest marker of each color.


I used the you are one in a million sentiment, making this a double duty card.

Christmas and Appreciation!

Cafe

It’s new release time over at All Dressed Up Stamps.


Hi All! Finally the 7th of the month and new releases from All Dressed Up Stamps! This month I got to color up “cafe” it features one of Wendy’s sweet girl images. I LOVE these ladies. Sometimes I think I am partial to coloring people, or people like images. (Stamping Bella Oddballs?? LOL) BUT! I am always open to color anything. Now, on with the Show and Tell…


I dressed my girl simply in army green jacket and hat, a pop of pink shirt and socks paired with blue jeans.


I used a hot foil sentiment with pink foil to balance the sign and her shirt. The pink gem stones help with this also.


Looking back at this image, I probably should have made her mug blue also. If I was home I might be tempted to recolor the mug! But since I am the passenger in our truck on the way to the Florida Keys while writing this, it’s NOT gonna happen! LOL….
