Christmas Card Club #7: Cute Christmas

Good morning, my crafty friends! I hope y'all had a good night's sleep, albeit an hour short. Yep.... we're on Summer Time as of today. Let's hope the weather actually catches up because it sure doesn't feel or look like summer around here. In fact, it feels like Christmas is just around the corner.... brrr.

This fortnight, the Christmas Card Club girls are creating Cute Christmas cards. Here's my take on that theme. 

 This square card is all about circles. I'm using up scrap papers by cutting them up in circles
with SB Classic Circles dies. The greeting is from Clearly Besotted's Merry Little Christmas.   

This cute little penguin is from Clearly Besotted's Let It Snow set. I stamped him with
VersaFine Black Onyx and for his hat and scarf I used VersaColor Pink. (Oh dear.... I
dressed him in pink. Guess my "he" is actually a "she"!) . I cut all the bits out with 

coordinating dies and popped the lot up with foam tape. Then I added some 
Stickles Stardust on the pom-poms of her hat.    

The sentiment is also from the Merry Little Christmas set. And I added a few snowflakes
from the Let It Snow set, stamped with VersaColor Baby Blue. 

Challenges for this card:

Alphabet Challenge: D For Diecuts - circles and penguin
That's all from me today. I really ought to start making some Easter cards.... it's almost time, isn't it?! Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed Sunday.

Beijinhos!
