Hi, and welcome!

I'm noticing that I seem to be surrounded by penguins, another one for you on today's card, and yesterday brought me Happy Mail from my Papercraft Planet and bloggie friend, Maria, over in Germany, who sent me a gorgeously cute card.......the star of which was a ........Penguin!....and he brought lots of friends, too.........

Just how sweet is that?.....thank you,again, Maria.....I LOVE it!
Maria knows, as do most of you by now, that I really do not like hot weather, and would much prefer to live in a snow-bound landscape, every day of the year......Would it surprise ya to know that my favourite songs include "White Christmas" and "Let it Snow, Let it Snow, Let it Snow"?.....nope....thought not....ha!

Hardly want to show my effort after that ickle here he is.........went with a different colour of backing paper this time, but stayed with the red gingham ribbon, and red Christmas Rose.......just added lilac to the snowflake to blend with the background colours, and his fluffy lilac jumper.......looks very cosy.......

I'm just lovin' the expressions on these ickle guys ya think his Mum got him wrapped up against the cold?.....ha!  that expression certainly reminds me how my kids looked when I did

Another arteeeeeesteeeec embellie, cut and made by my own fair hands..........

Not as many layers on this one, but they still give some dimension.........don't know if there are still any Christmas challenges goin' on anywhere, but ya never know!

By the way, if I haven't got around to your blog yet, and invited you to take my Fabby Follower award, please feel free to go to the relevant post (see sidebar archive) and take it........and don't forget to pass it on....but only to peeps who you consider to be true know, the ones who take time and effort to leave comments, regularly.......they are the ones who make ya feel you're not just spittin' in the wind, but somebody is actually paying attention.....HaaaHaaa!!
