It's Christmas!!!

Well it is at CSAYL!
(Christmas Stamping All Year Long)

It's Christmas almost every week here and it's time for a new challenge!
You up for it?
We'd like you to make a Christmas card using Embossing Powder.

Easy peazy!

Our lovely sponsor this week is..........
 Di's Digis is offering one lucky winner a $12 voucher for the store! Whoo Hoo!

Just in case you need some inspiration, here's my DT card to give you some ideas.
(Not that you clever people need it)!

Now how about THAT for a cute penguin!
She's one of my favourite penguin stamps from my amazing friend Kathy of Peachy Keen fame.
The stamp set is  PP-1443 'Faceless Penguins. Daft really 'coz there are two face stamps in the set 
and four word stamps! I think it's all sold out though now. Aww
I used a sentiment from PK-1444 'Dear Santa and Penguin sentiments'. Because the stamps are so flexible, I was able to curve it around the base of the circle.
I stamped her onto a stitched circle (SSS), coloured the little lady with Copics and mounted it onto a stitched rectangle then the base card.
The Embossing consists of Frantage sprinkled over the penguin to mimic snow.

Please come and join in with us, we love admiring all your beautiful cards.
Pop on over to the CSAYL Blog for all the details and to see the amazing creations made by my fabulous DT buddies.

Have a wonderful weekend!!!
