Cute Penguins on matching Christmas Cards

 Hello My Crafty Blog Friends and Visitors

How was your weekend? We had a quiet one but we had lots of catching up to do. The garden is well on the way to being winter ready. The birds are enjoying the sunflower heads we have put out for them. 

As you know I have had a lot of family stuff to deal with lately. One way I found to calm down was to colour with my Faber Castell Polychromo pencils. Here are some cards I made with the Two Jays small penguin stamps. I drew the backgrounds for the cards myself. 

I began drawing the backgrounds and colouring these images when we were on our cruise back in September. 

It is just so calming to concentrate on the colouring. 

Here are the four cards together. The Christmas stash is coming on nicely. 

Happy Crafting

Gorgeous cards Jackie, I think most of us craft to 'escape' if you understand my meaning, plus it gives us a sense of worth. I hope your coping

Hi Jackie, colouring is so soothing, just concentrating of the colours really helps to keep all the destructive and negative thoughts at bay, well is does for me.
Your cards are lovely, and what a brilliant background you've drawn in, take care Kate x
