Penguin in Love x

Afternoon lovelies! It's Friday, so it's time for a new sketch over at the Friday Sketch Challenge and this week, it's a fab one from Kelly. I've rotated it to make my card cos the image was the other way round....
Image - Digistamp Boutique coloured with Spectrum Noirs and Promarkers (I'm a big fan of mixing 'em up lately!)
Papers - Freebies from a magazine (again!)
Sentiment - Computer generated.
Dies/Punches - Spellbinders Fancy Oval and Scalloped Oval Nesties, Memory Box Snowflake, Cuttlebug Vintage Corner dies and various snowflake punches.
Other - Whitewash Coredinations (love this stuff!!) and Shimmer Dots from stash.

Sorry that the picture quality's not that great - I forgot to take a pic before I gave it to my Mum and Dad (from my son) and so I had to take it with my iphone at their house - I'll try and get a better one at some point if I get the chance.
It's actually quite funny if you read the post over at Friday Sketch Challenge cos reading it sounds exactly like me!! We're right on top of Christmas now and as usual, I've been working til the last minute to get all my cards made - I've even had a couple this year (shock, horror LOL!!!) I too will be making a new year's resolution to 'be more organised with my crafting' - and you may have noticed that over the last couple of months, my posting has been a bit erratic - I have had a lot going on, which I won't bore you with but another NY resolution is definitely to get back to my blogging best and I'm going to use the relaxing time over the holidays to catch up with you all.
Right, I'd better go, been bleating on for long enough methinks. I'm all excited about tomorrow cos we're going ice skating, which I love (although not been for ages, so keep your fingers crossed for me that I don't break anything!!!??) Back soon....................xx

Morning! It's the last challenge for 2012 starting today over at Sunday Sketch and Stamp and this time, you can take your pick of any of our previous sketches - and you've got til the 5th January to take part so you've got plenty of time to join in more than once!! I used Sketch # 124 to make my card:

Image - Freebie from Quick Cards made Easy, coloured using Spectrum Noirs with chalk inks in the background.
Papers - Freebies from QCME.
Flowers - made using Bazzill Basics card punched with Martha Stewart flower punch layered with handcut holly leaves with gold glitter glue in the middle.

There have been some fab freebies with the magazines this year and I've not had the chance to use all of them, so I'll still be using them next year! Well, I'll be off - don't forget to hop over to Sunday Sketch and Stamp and have a nose at my fellow teamies gorgeous creations (we've got a couple of new DT members too!) and make sure you join in! Bye for
