Al Loves Winter

I have been wanting to tell you all some exciting news but wanted to have a card to go with it. I have been chosen as one of the new members of the Stamp Fairy design team. Stamp Fairy has also launched a new challenge blog and this week for their second challenge, the theme is anything goes.


I am especially fond of the Christmas/Winter stamps that Gerda has created. For my card I have used this cute little penguin named Al.  Al Loves Winter and why shouldn't he, after all he is a penguin.  I have coloured him with my copics, the snowball has been filled with stickles to make it sparkle like the snow and I have used some liquid applique for even more of the fluffy white stuff.

The designer papers have been chosen from my stash and they are so old that I don't even know where they come from. A few punches for embellishment and a simple sentiment were all that were needed to finish this card and I now have a flat card that is perfect to pop in the mail.

Be sure to pop over to the Stamp Fairy challenge blog and let the design team inspire you. You don't have to use a Stamp Fairy image to play along but there is a fantastic sale going on at the Stamp Fairy shop, all images are now 50% off.


I will be entering this card in the following challenges:
