PPPPPP Pick up a penguin

I have finally got my bum into gear with regards to my christmas cards. I have decided however that I want to go for some quick and easy options as I have quite a few to make. So instead of stamping and colouring I am cheating by using decoupage and pre-printed images.

This first set I have made using the new Penelope and Percy range, I have made a couple of shaker cards and a few with some different folds in them.
Box Step Card - Front
Box Step Card - Inside
Easel Card
Front Step Card
Normal Decoupage

Hope you like my quick cards, thanks for popping by today.

All checked out

Hi all, sorry I have not been around for a while been very busy with work. We have been very quiet with the shop over the summer months so have really been putting the work in doing demo days, sourcing new products and such to try and get the business back up to strength. My last demo day was a great success and my classes are doing very well now that I have even had to extend them to fit every one in 35 ladies a week I teach now (I do a class every day!!). Because of this I have been getting to the point that when I get home I am all crafted out, but I really do need to make a start on my Christmas Cards no long now really !!!.

However the card I am about to show you today, was made for my best friends little girl who is 9 today. She is in Oli's class and they are really good friends too.

The papers are making memories and are a from a boy themed pad, but after I have coloured the image they just seemed to fit perfectly. I prettied them up with some flowers and gems and added a little bow and craftwork cards sentiment. The image is from some online colouring pages she is a precious moments image and I have coloured her with promarkers.

Thanks for popping by today, hope to be back soon with some christmas cards.

Lyndsey xx
