Christmas Penguins

Hi My Crafty Blog Friends

I hope you are having a good weekend. Sadly my special plans did not work out so I have nothing exciting to share with you. So today I have been helping my daughter move out of her house in Winchester and into her boyfriend's house in Newbury. Unfortunately this has meant us having to store a lot of furniture at our house. We are still trying to think of the best way to fit it all in. I am sure there will be some trips to the tip. Tomorrow we are visiting a special friend who is not very well. So I will be making good use of the time I have gained.

I have been using Anita's Decoupage sheets again. They were in the bundle I received from Docrafts a few weeks ago. I think a lot of my Christmas cards will be coming from this bundle.


I forgot to take a picture of the sheet these two little sets came from. The penguins are very cute. Both cards are just under 6" x 6" this means they can be made from an A4 sheet. 


Here is a close up of the first card. I had some sparkle card left over from the 60th Anniversary cards I made recently and the backing paper I found in my snippet stash. The shiny blue card was in my Christmas snippets box. 


I used more of the glitter card it had been cut into squares that I just had to resize them for these cards. The backing paper was an off cut too. The decoupage for both cards I made up with a gel glue which is fine if they have time to dry if there isn't time there is always foam pads. 
  

That's another two cards for my stash. These will be ones that I hand out as they are a little to deep for posting. I make flatter cards for posting. 


Enjoy the rest of the weekend and the week ahead. I have quite a few 

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie
