Penguin Christmas Card for the March Rudolph Days Challenge

Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How are you getting on? We are managing okay. Going shopping is a bit hairy but we do need to eat. I am being creative with ingredients. There is lots of time to have a go. We have a big puzzle to dabble with. My husband is working from home and I am making cards and needle felting. Hobbies are great.

I love joining in with the Rudolph Days Challenge each month. It starts on the 25th of the month and runs until the end of the month. This is a great way to keep on top of your Christmas makes. I wonder if things will be okay by Christmas?

Somewhere I saw a sketch that I liked. I decided to follow the sketch for a Design Team make but the image I was working with  just didn't work. I went to my supply of old cards and I found an image that I could use.

I chose matching blue papers. When I follow a sketch I like to mat the shapes with black so the design is obvious. 

I chose this penguin image from my old cards. I cut the image and its mat with some Tonic Dies. The greeting is a Tattered Lace die. 

I was so pleased that I was able to use this sketch and that my effort did not go to waste. Don't worry the Design Team card got made as well. 

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Keep well and stay safe.

Happy Crafting

Hugs Jackie

You made a great take on that sketch, Jackie!

Your penguin image is really pretty with the arched necks like that. Good DP choices as the DP so suits the penguins.

Thanks for taking part in the March Rudolph Days Challenge.

I am not surprised at all that you are creative with ingredients as well as your paper goodies, Jackie! Beautiful penguin creation! The last 6 weeks have been harsh regarding my abilities, so I have not left as many comments as usual. I have enjoyed all your beautiful creations, and appreciate your inspiration. Please forgive my inability to get this fumble fingers working properly. hugs, de

Great looking Christmas card, and as you said - the black does make things stand out well. I'm not going to start Christmas cards for a while, though I am thining of having a play with creating my own Christmas greetings banners using my Scan'N'Cut and foiling quill while it is still out from a previous project.
