Winter Wonderland - Penguins & Polar Bears!


It's Friday again ... geez, these weeks sure are flying by fast aren't they!!  And here we are on the very last few challenges of 2010 for Winter Wonderland.  Marianne is our lovely host this week and we have the theme 'Penguins & Polar Bears'.  How can you not make a cute card with either/both of these adorable winter animals!

These polar bear images are from Sunshine Designs by The Stamp Barn and come in a set of 4.  There is a bit of technique to making this card as I stamped the images on both the front of the card and inside, cut out a square around their face and then the inside image shows through.  I used Tombow markers to add some subtle watercolour.  The background paper is Echo Park - isn't it gorgeous!!  Some turquoise ribbon and a MS punched snowflake finish the card off.

I hope you're able to pop on over to the Winter Wonderland blog and join in our challenge this week.  We are sponsored by The Hobby House and Stamping with the Dragon.

I'm off to see if I can catch up on some blog hopping and commenting ... I seem to keep saying this and yet I don't ever find the time to catch up to my tail .... I'm continually chasing it!!  Must be the time of year, LOL!!

Thanks for stopping by and for the comments you leave - they really are truly appreciated!
