Good morning everyone - today I am posting a DT card for the Crafty Calendar Challenge.   This is a sort of just over half-way reminder (would have been different if I had remembered to post this one at the beginning of the month) ooer!!  I have apologised to our lovely leader for this oversight.  Anyway you still have loads of time to enter our challenge (here).

This is a 'Bingo' challenge - just pick a line from the following card but make sure you make a note of which line you have used on your blog!  I used 'Sparkle, Die cuts and Blue'!

Our sponsor this month is Robyn’s Fetish Digital Stamps And More and they are happy to award 3 digital stamps of the winner’s choice to the winner of this challenge.

I chose a lovely little digi called 'Paul Penguin' which you can find on the site (here).


7" x 7" White card blank - Anna Marie Designs
Digi image - Paul Penguin from Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps
Papers - LOTV 'Frosty Christmas' paper pad

I  hope you still have time to enter the above, you could win three digis of your choice so everything to gain and nothing to lose!!!

Thank you for stopping by yet again - three cards in four days - whatever next!  Please leave me a comment if you have the time and the inclination!  Take care.

Big hugs to you all out there - whether you need one or not!!!

  5. Wonderful card Sue! I just love the penguin pulling the Christmas tree, what a great card design. The houses and trees at the background look fab.
    Thank you for your lovely comment on my blog. You asked about the puff powder. I'll tell you what Lou told me:-
    Using a Versamark watercolour pad and a paint brush you paint were you want the powder to be. Next add the powder, tip off excess, heat from below and then from above. While the embossing is still hot, sprinkle more powder where you want it thicker. Heat from below again and then above. When heating from above don't do it for long or it will go yellow. I don't know what Lou used to clean her brush with afterwards but I used some Easy Peas stamp cleaner from Indigoblu. Hope this helps. Debra x

  6. Hi Sue, I just love your card, such a fab image and layout, great colours too, hugs Kate x

  8. Hi Sue me wonderful blogging mate.
    OOOOOOOOOOOO this is a really fab scene card.
    I love your penguin pulling the Chrissy Tree, and the chain round it.
    Super designing as always, and I see the maestro has done his bit too. OOOOOOOO good job I just checked my spelling as I put but instead of bit. Now that would have been awful. lol.
    Love and big hugs to all in the P household, especially my good friend Pidgy, and I hope Blossom and Donny are being good.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  10. Lovely card for Christmas, thank you for taking part in Craft for the Craic challenge, subject of this month challenge is something for birthday or childish so Christmas card maybe doesn't suit so much but it's lovely ;)

    1. Hi Joanna - I have just re-read the challenge theme and it says "suitable for a child or a childish theme" - really sorry but I can't see anything about it having to be a birthday card on there at all.

      I have seen other Christmas cards entered on there - I do hope this is OK.

      Hugs to you Sue Pxxx
