Santa's Little Penguin

Welcome back to my blog where, once again, I have Christmas on my mind.

Whilst searching through some papers recently, I came across this lovely image from Digistamp Boutique, which I had printed ready to colour, but never go around to using. So I decided to make this project all about using up old scraps.

Everything that you see in this card was made from odd and ends that I found. The lovely digital papers were Nitwits ones that I printed 'just in case'.. I found one odd A4 sheet of red card which was a slightly different shade to all the others, so I gutted it and used it to create my mats , the die cut greeting and the diary lights too. I was really pleased that I had managed to use stuff that had been lying around for ages and still come up with a card that looked like it had all been planned!
Here's a close up shot of the cute penguin…….Just because he is so cute.

So before I go, of course I need to enter some challenges, and here they are:

I'm off now to enjoy a couple of hours of being creative.  :-)

Thanks for visiting.
