mister penguin

Hi everyone.  I want to wish all my American blogging friends and wonderful Thanksgiving. For all you black Friday shoppers, I hope you got some great deals. 

We have some more exciting news! There will be  2 more bella babes joining us officially on Dec 1/12.  They are both super talented gals. You can check out there blogs:  Amanda Reed - Cards, cats and copics
and Angela Thomas- Sparkle & Bling.
  Okay, lets get down to business.  This weeks challenge was to do a holiday wishes/winter card.  I struggled with this, this week because I had so many winter images and I couldn't decide on what to colour.  

I narrowed it down to a few and decided on a new image from Emily's last release called Mister Penguin goes for a Ride.

 As always, I stamped the image on bella's bestest paper and the coloured it up using copics.  I sponged  around the image leaving the die in place with versamagic sea breeze.  The image was then layered onto a piece of silver mirra c/s.  Designer paper is from MME called 12 days of Christmas - (last years).

I was going to stamp some snowflakes in the sky but was almost afraid to in case I didn't like it. I noticed I had some rub-ons laying on my desk and  thought I'll give that  try. The rub-ons are silver, it is so pretty in real.  I added some white flock to the trim on Ramona's hood, hero arts prisma glitter to the tree and diamond dust to the ground for the snow. Finished off with some cherry cobbler seam binding ribbon.

Stop over at bloggabella to see all the other beautiful cards created for our holiday theme.  Leave a comment for a chance to win $10 in bella bucks.

Next week our challenge is Sketch #24.  Get creative, then email Emily your card by thursday night, so we can post it on bloggabella. By doing this, you have a chance to win $20 in bella bucks. 

That's it for me for today.  Enjoy your weekend, see you again real soon.

Seriously, I need to get on your Christmas card mailing list. Your sweet Ramona card lucks at my heart strings and is playing my song. Sigh.
