Santa Penguin

Hello peeps, it seems like an eternity since I was last able to sit at the computer and do a post, even though it isn't really.  

Thanks to everyone who has sent get well wishes, I have some wonderful friends out there in blogland.  I think I am finally starting to improve, the "tasered daily" feeling is now reduced to "wrapped in an electric fence" sensation and the blisters are beginning to go.

This is the first card I have made in over two weeks, and it took me ages.  I had almost forgotten how to use the inks!

I had promised that I wasn't going to indulge in any new Christmas images this year.  That lasted about three days until all the new releases started to appear, and as soon as I saw this one I could resist no longer.


This is Santa Penguin by Krista Heij Barber, one of my favourite Whimsy Stamps artists
Very simple layout with Dovecraft Glad Tidings papers
Image painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers)
The sentiment comes with the stamp, I didn't even separate them

Hope he makes you smile as much as he did me.

Hugs to all
Squirrel xx

Of course this little cutie made me smile...you have coloured him beautifully and teamed him with some gorgeous DPs so a smile was guaranteed!

I made the same promise not to buy new images...and failed as soon as those cute LOTV trios were announced! I'm sure I will fails some more over the next few months!

Big hugs, Kat xx

He made me smile too... perfectly coloured (you've got a fabulous red with those DI's) and a fab design too....... love the papers you've used!

So glad to hear you're feeling slightly better - hope by now (as I'm so late with my commenting) you're getting there!

Big hugs
