Winter Love

Hi, its time for my next DT card over a Christmas Stampin' All Year Long - This week the challenge is a photo inspiration - based on this pic - could be that you chose to use the colours, or layers, cake or bells, whatever inspires you.

This week the challenge is sponsored by the wonderful "Bugaboo" and the digi I chose is called Little Penguin Winter - Winter Bench.

I used a spellbinders die to showcase the digi and coloured it with copics. The photography is not too good but the penguins tummy's are shiny with glossy accents and the snow is glittery.
I went for an easel card and used papers from a new magazine I bought - Creative Card Making. I punched some snowflakes and added gems as centres. The sentiment is also from the magazine which I mounted on a circle cut from a spellbinders die. I added a little heart button and a Christmas Tree button to finish it off. I would like to enter this card in the following challenges -

dreamvalleychallenges-41-celebrations - Christmas

Well back after a wonderful 2 weeks celebrating our Silver Wedding in Lake Garda - Italy. Can't believe I've been married to a wonderful man for 25 years.
After having a long look around blog land I decided to start off with a House Mouse card. I already had the decoupage cut out so thought it was about time I used it.

I just love the Gruffies and this pair remind me of all the wonderful Italian ice creams I have just indulged in lol! Over at the House Mouse blog their challenge this week is friends so this just fits the bill so well. All the backing papers are from my stash - love the script friends one. I added some gorgeous pale pink lace, and the flowers are from Hobby House. I added a couple of skeleton leaves which I found whilst routing through my craft drawers! I finished with the sentiment and some diamant√© for a bit of bling.
I would like to enter this in the following challenges -
