Addicted to CAS which kicks off this week with the codeword Snow. I've combined the theme with the sketch from another of my favourite clean and simple challenge sites, Case this Sketch. Come and see what I've come up with:
When I first saw Zoo Review in the catalogue back in September, I immediately thought of the Christmas card possibilities. Well, here's the penguin looking perfectly at home in a sponged background of ice and snow, with drifts created with a torn paper mask. The scene is mounted onto a card base decorated with scored lines.
I stamped my penguin onto Very Vanilla card stock and watercoloured him with inks and an aquapainter before cutting him out and mounting him onto the background. The sentiment is from Merry and Type and I thought it was a very apt wish for these incredible creatures who survive in the most challenging climate on Earth.
Here's what you'll need to make this card
Stamps: Zoo Review, Merry and Type
Ink: Sahara Sand, Pool Party, Midnight Muse, Tangerine Tango classic inks, Whisper White craft ink
Card stock: Whisper White, scrap of Very Vanilla
Other: Simply Scored, Basic Black and Tangerine Tango markers, stamp-a-majig

We have said farewell to our lovely French Exchange student. It was my daughter's birthday during his visit and I didn't want him to feel left out of the celebrations so I suggested he made a card for her. He entered into this project with great enthusiasm, enlisting my youngest son's help, and on the day itself sang happy birthday with gusto. This was his first trip away from France and I hope he will carry back fond memories of his time with us.
Now... I've got some catching up to do! See you tomorrow,
