Arctic Fun - DigiStamp Boutique DT

Hello :o)

I'm just popping in quickly to show you a card made with a super cute DigiStamp Boutique image called Arctic Fun... I don't think I've used this one before, and I've no idea why!


I'm sensing a theme with my Christmas cards for this year... most of them seem to feature a penguin or two!

The image is coloured with copics, with a touch of Prisma pencil, plus Glamour Dust sparkle and some tiny Viva pearl 'snow' dots.  The papers are those pretty Northern Whimsy digi ones again - Peppermint Latte Plaid and Peppermint Latte Coordinates, printed on linen card.  Sentiment tag stamps are LOTV (stamped in white on black card), snowflake dies and the oval are MFT die-namics and the border die is possibly Lil' Inkers?  Black twine and blue gem from my stash.

I'm entering my card for the following challenges
Come and Get It - animals challenge
Crafty Cardmakers - animal magic
Cutie Pie - bear hugs
Moving Along With the Times - Christmas animals
Crafty Catz - anything goes + optional winter colours

There was a showcase at Dex's school today - they have them a few times a year to show parents whatever the kids are working on.  There were little quizzes for the parents to join in with, and Dex's table did 'sentences using your senses', so we had to write something about what we could see/ hear/ smell etc... my sentence won first place, and I asked Dex afterwards if he cheated and made sure I won... he said 'no, I thought you should have got second' LOL!  I always go to Dex if I want an honest opinion on anything I'm making... he doesn't sugar coat anything!

Thanks for popping in :o)
