The bauble I have glittered with Red & gold glitter, which you can see in the picture below.

Penguin in pink

I saw this idea on merging Cuttlebug folders over at Jak Heaths blog & decided to have a play myself. The image is by Mo Manning @ Digital Pencil Too which I have coloured with Prisma pencils & Sansador. I have used the Xmas house folder  & tree bark (I think) & joined the two to make a scene. Covered the lower embossed bits with Glamour Dust to look like snow & mounted the penguin on foam pads & he looks like he is running through the snow (well at least I think he is).
Background is a SeeD stamp & silver Brilliance ink used to give a shine & stamped randomly onto black card. Ribbon from stash.

Dream Big

My step son is 27 & normally hubby buys a card for him as one year I came up with several cards & he didn't like them, so I said ok, I will not make anymore, you can buy them & that has been the case for several years, even though he loves my cards usually & is very supportive. Anyway, I thought this year I would have a go again & see if it passed his standards. I am pleased to say he loves it & will not be buying a card for Ben this
The decoupage was a sheet I had from Hobby Tool years ago & it was a dream to cut out. Papers from HOTP Cardmakers Classics. Sentiment from a sheet made by Cazz . Buttons & metal embellie all from stash.
