Would a piece of holly suffice as my Christmas gift to you darling?

That's what flew through my mind when I'd finished making this card:
It's the thought that counts after all :)

I used:

- 6" x 6" square white card stock

- Penny Black Stickeroo from the 'Together In Christmas' set

- backing paper from a ''Tis The Season' pack, free with Quick Cards Made Easy magazine

- a snippet of Certainly Celery SU card to back the image, and sticky pads to adhere it to the card itself

- ribbons from the ribbon box

One thing that constantly surprises me, and it isn't as if I have as many patterned backing papers as most, there's always one to go with a Stickeroo - so long as I have the time to rootle through.

This is my second entry for Sarn's Rudolph Day challenge - a lovely set of stamps to be won and I'm trying hard!

I'd also like to enter this into Winter Wonderland's current challenge which is 'To The One I Love'.

And, St. Luke's current challenge which is 'Couples'.

I do hope Mrs Penguin is grateful and doesn't tell Mr Penguin to stick it where the sun don't shine - ouch! Wash my mouth out with soap - bad, bad girl saying things like that :(



  1. This is so those penguins
    Can't sleep and blog cruising for a bit...having fun and entering blog candy! LOL
    Well, 6 hours till i have to get up and face the grandkids so I'd better get off to bed!!!

  2. such a beautiful card, love the image choice, thank you for joining us at the Winter Wonderland
    Hugs Kate xx

  3. Love the card Di. It reminded me of a book I illustrated for a couple of schools...the book was called The Queen's knickers. I made a rag doll queen and all her special pairs of knickers including her Christmas pair that had holly the book it says that's why she keeps her Christmas speech short! :-)

  4. Go Di, go Di, you can win those stamps!

    Love the card, beautiful Crimbo colours and think the image is very cute. I think he is saying 'Mrs Penguin, l have a piece of holly stuck in my beak' and obviously she can't understand a word he is saying cause his gob is full of holly lol.

    Have a great day Di xxx

  5. OOOH Di . . . I love this sweet and sassy festive card. Those penguins are cute. Love the card layout.

    Thanks for making a second entry. GOOD LUCK in the draw!
