Frosted Winter


Hello my lovely crafty friends. First off an apology for being so sparse with my visits of late, I'm afraid that real life (in the shape of family, animals and work) has just got in the way of crafty fun. Hopefully normal service will resume soon.

Luckily this card was in my Buddly Crafts DT folder ready to share with you so at least I am not empty handed!!


I just love this cute penguin wearing his/her bear hat...so cute, and All Warm is the perfect name. The papers and sentiment are also digis from Buddly Crafts and I coloured it with Promarkers to match those used on the image.

  2. Hi Sarah, yes life does have a habit of doing that and this time of year seems worse somehow, especially with our four legged friends and with days drawing in so quickly we need to pack more into less time.

    Anyhow, your share is very nice, like the colours and patchwork papers.

  26. Hi Sarah,
    what a super card.
    I love the way you have done the patchwork on the papers, and that image is fab.
    I too am trying to catch up as my internet went down the other day right in the middle of commenting.
    I take my hat off to you for being able to manage so many things, and work as well.
    Have a wonderful weekend.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  30. Cute, Cute image, and I love that background paper. What a delightful cozy warm hat this little critter is wearing. Hope things ease up for you...but that's life as it really is. We get busy. Other things take priority. Enjoy whatever it is, you're doing, and if you can! Each moment is precious. Happy wkend, and TFS (ps, I'm enjoying the eps of DM that pop up on the 'net and waiting for 10-5 on Acorn!). Hugs
