4 crafty chicks & Crafty Animals.

Here are 3 Christmas penguins I made to sell for charity.
They have boggly eyes.

The challenge over at 4 crafty chicks is winter critters.
Crafty Animals is anything goes, these 3 penguins are animals, so I'm adding them there too.

I'm hoping that these qualify and it doesn't have to be a card.

Just add ink

Just add ink has this sketch.
I'm using the Kaisercraft Just Peachy collection again with this card.

The flower on the yellow is a rub on. The sentiment is a stamp.
Hope you like it!

Scrapping Outback

Image result for pink paislee fascinating                                                This paper is Pink Paislee ,Fascinating. It features a watermelon red background with small flowers.

It is my starting point for my Scrapping Outback layout.

White with watermelon red , lime green and a touch of blue

I mounted my photos on white cardstock and cut the centre from a white paper doiley.I've used both parts on my layout plus the white and green tag. (hopefully that is enough white!)

My chipboard piece is the large leaf at bottom left.(painted) I've also painted wood veneer butterflies and a leaf with palest lime/white.
My layout is called  @ PBG (short for Phoenix Botanical Gardens). I was running out of space and alphas.

I'll add my journaling later.

Tic Tac Toe challenge

All my Christmas cards are made and many sold. I don't need to make any more.
I like Tic Tac Toe challenge because you can go off on another track.

On this card I decided to go down the left vertical column.
Turquoise embossing and vellum.

I've used plain vellum and put it through the cuttlebug to emboss it.
The sentiment is one of those strips you cut off the bottom of scrapbooking paper.
I added a blue star rhinestone as a finishing touch.


This sketch is for stuck?! sketches December.
I really like it because it gives a chance to use those offcut strips.
I also used 2 Fleur de LIs shaped chipboard pieces from Memory Maze, which I have had for ages.
I painted them cream then stamped a swirly pattern on.

The heart shape was from a table decoration given to us at a recent wedding.
My wood veneer butterflies I left neutral.
The photos are of the Sonoran desert butterfly.

Here it is!
