Cuddly and warm

My second offering for today! After my recent 9 square card I decided to try a 4 square card. I'm not sure I'd make too many of these types of card, lining them up takes a bit of concentration to get them exactly right! I love this little penguin, he looks so warm all cuddled up in his hat and big jumper.


The cute penguin image is from Pink Petticoat's Have An Ice Christmas set, coloured with a lovely pastel green Promarker and chalked. Ultra Fine Crystal glitter used for snow.
Squares cut with Nesties, embossed with Cuttlebug using the Snowflakes and Kars Snowflakes folders.
The embossing has all been glittered with Ultra Fine Crystal glitter but it doesn't show up that well.

Happy Birthday/Anniversary

This is a card I made for hubby Paul. It was for the first anniversary of his bone marrow transplant. When they receive their transplants, the hospital tells the patients that date becomes their 'official birthday' as it symbolises a second chance of life. It's a date you don't forget and we're so thankful that he's been given this opportunity by an unknown donor. I could have done this with autumn colours as I also had papers in that colourway, but I chose green to symbolise Spring as I always think of that time of year when life begins again in the garden.


The papers and topper were a Nancy Watt freebie in a recent magazine.
Ribbon from QVC.
Card Candy coloured with Promarkers.
Sentiment printed on computer, cut with Nesties and chalked.
