Hello Everyone! I hope you are well. It's my day for posting on the My Mum's Craft shop blog today but before I show you my card, I have some very exciting news to share with you. I found out yesterday that I have been nominated for Favourite Card Designer for the British Craft Awards 2016 which take place during the Craft Trade show at the NEC in February. I am so delighted and still very surprised and happy to have been nominated. My Mum's Craft Shop is also nominated so I am thrilled about that too! If you would like to vote you can do so by clicking on the logo below and it will take you to the website.
So exciting!!! Now on to my card. I am trying to get organised and make some more Christmas cards as Christmas is fast approaching! I have nearly finished my shopping but have not made many cards at all. I used the Avery Elle Penguin Greetings stamp set on my DT card for My Mum's Craft shop. I love this set and I think I will be using it for a lot of my cards for Friends and Family this year as I love the way you can use the little penguins together to represent Family groups.
I used the fabulous Doodlebug Sugar Plums papers and an older Paper Smooches sentiment. I am trying to wean myself off using my sewing machine so much on my cards at the moment so didn't stitch this one and kept the layout quite simple.
I had lots of fun paper piecing the penguin's clothes using matching papers from the pad and coloured the images using my Promarkers. These were very quick to colour in and I then finished the card with some stick on gems and a wooden snowflake. I hope you have a lovely Friday and a lovely weekend.
