Whats Black and White and Red all over?

A sunburnt penguin!
Black and white Christmas cards, maybe with a splash of colour! A nice easy not too challenging dare to get us through these busy weeks, heres what I came up with...
A simple stamped card using Royal and Langernickel clear snowflake stamps, Purple Onion background text stamp, a do crafts snowflake punch and a circle punch.

This one's done with the cute Bosscuts snowman. Snowflakes and sniny bits are done with a glaze gelly roll pen. I hope you're inspired, and if you have a few more Chiristmas cards to get made and sent then this is your chance. The design team has produced an amazing selection of cards.

Only 3 days til my Birthday and some rather interesting brown boxes have been arriving by courier. I gave them a quick once over and I know what I hope might be inside... They've now been hidden away from my grubby paws!

The only other thing to report is that last night I started the mamoth task of tidying my craft room. It was getting ridiculous with barely a path to my seat from the door for stuff, and of course every surface covered. Digging down through the layers was a bit like archeology, and there were random bits for a good few dares ago at the very bottom. I found some things I'd mislaid too which is always good. Today Im going to hoover and dust while I can see carpet and surfaces and then make some new mess.

There's a lot of nasty bugs going round right now, big hugs to everyone who's feling poorly and get well soon.

Lovely cards. though not actually sure what a pengun is.......sounds a bit dangerous to me. As does all this cleaning/hoovering/dusting stuff
