~~ Christmas at Fab'n'Funky #428 ~~~

Hi everyone,

A beautiful day today as I schedule this post.   Ground is snow covered but the sun is shining brightly so no complaints from me.  Lunch out with the girls tomorrow if weather remains calm.  We've rescheduled twice already because of old man winter...hope the storms hold off for another day as I miss meeting with this bunch of friends.

Today starts a new challenge at 

Fab'n'Funky Challenge #428 

and the theme is "Christmas"

I've coloured with copics a very favourite image.  
I just love the cute penguins that Chrissy creates.

~~ Red and Gold ~~

Hi everyone,
I  hope you are having a good day.
Another cold front coming thru for us.
High winds and snow combined with ice pellets expected later.  
Oh.....Not a fun winter so far.

Today I have a card for the Chinese New Year
The image is from Aurora Wings and is perfect for this occasion.
I mailed this very late and hope that it was received before the
end of the celebrations.

~~~ The Cutie Pie Challenge ~ One for the Boys

Hi everyone,

It's time for a new challenge at 

The Cutie Pie Challenge #132

 where our lovely Sarah is hosting.
The theme will be "Card for a Boy, or for that Special Boy.

I've coloured with Copics a digital image from Whimsy Stamps
called "Gecko Love".  Another Crissy Armstrong design.
I think my hubby will have a smile on his face when 
he sees this one.  It will remind him of our recent trip to Aruba
where gecko's and iguana joined us daily at the pool garden.

Another cas design.  Again I've created the sentiment in word.
I really am rubbish at stamping. 
I use a scrap piece of paper to test my measurements as to where it should print,
that way I do not ruin a good piece of cardstock.  Frame cut using a MFT die
then adhered with pop dots for dimension.

I would like to enter the following challenges:
Thanks so much for stopping by today.
I do hope you can stop by the blog and see the wonderful
inspiration from my talented team mates, and play along with us
if you can.

~~ Winter Wonderland Tribute ~~

Hi everyone,
