Traditional or Modern Christmas

 Well autumn has finally arrived here in Dorset. We've had frosty, cold and crisp days and also  warm and blustery wet days. The Summer clothes have been packed away and my Christmas Shopping list has one or two gifts ticked off already. Once again I am trying really hard to buy local, at the very least within Dorset and so far, so good!

On the subject of Christmas over at

we are itching to see your Traditional or Modern Christmas cards, with an explanation too.

My blogging buddies will know that I love nothing more than a cute image, bright colours and some snazzy paper so it's a Modern type card from me, featuring the aforementioned.

It's a dinky 4x4 card base, covered in a Doodlebug Design scrap. The penguin is part of an MFT set, Sweet Holiday Penguins , as is the sentiment that was stamped on to a Lawn Fawn, Wavy Banners. Oh and the penguin was coloured with Promarkers.

Lovely to have your company here today. Keep well everyone and stay safe, in our part of the country the Covid cases are rising steeply again.

See you soon xx

I love that set of penguins and so far I have resisted purchasing it! It looks fab match with the scrap of DP.
There was a layer of mist in the bottoms this morning but some heat still in the sun so it had burnt off by the time I was out with the dog. Well done for getting your Christmas list started, I'm still struggling with October birthdays! :)

Your penguin and paper are both adorable Sarah, I love cute in at like this one but with no little ones to cater for rarely get the chance to use them

A really colourful and fun card Sarah.

Like the idea of buying local, recall you doing this before, not sure what we have on offer around here, expensive hay and a gin distillery, might be the better bet of the two!

OMGoodness, your sweet and delicious paper is just perfect for this cute little penguin. You stay safe too. I think it's the time of year when colds and flus are out and now we have Covid to deal with too. We have a tummy bug doing it's rounds in the schools on my neck of the woods too, at the moment. Hopefully it will all settle down soon again.
