All I Want For Christmas Is You...................

Howdie doody me lovelies I'm back dont run away........... I am gonna show you my lovely hubsters card that I did for him other day. He likes Penguins cus of Madagascar.........'Rico is mint' apparently, his words mind bless 'em they are just over-grown children really arnt they lol. M y grandad always said tho that you can NEVER be too old for cartoons....his fave was Tom & Jerry, a classic of course lol.
Anyway I spent over an hour on the internet looking for penguin digi images that I could use until I came across a lovely couple of penguins at Motivet.....never been to this store before but I was rather impressed, altho I was good got in, brought this image & got out.....yay me lol....(I will go back tho lol)

This is 'Penguin Hug' arnt they sweeties................ Kept the card simple.......yeah I know check me out, buying 1 image AND keeping a card simple..........hope you watching santy I'm being good!!!

'All I Want For Christmas Is You' by Mariah Carey is mine & Craigs fave crimbo song so thats why I just had to add that sentiment to the images........ My other fave crimbo song is by Shakin Stevens & no matter where I am if this comes on its like my legs have a mind of their own & I start dancing & singing.........its just one of those happy songs that gets you going straight eldest usually walks the other way youngest & Natalie will just laugh at me lol.

All images were coloured with Copics, I added the words 'I Love You' to the sign in my art package & fussy cut around it. Added glimmer dust to all the snow cus even men need a bit of bling lol.

6x6 Scalloped edge card, A4 card & wooden heart heat embossed. Snowman button from my stash & white card embossed with a cuttlebug folder.

Well thats it me lovelies I'm away to hop around............I'm singing now I have it on in the background...
Howay peeps sing along 'Snow is falling all around us, children playing having fun, its the
season love & understanding.........Merry Christmas Everyone..........
 Tatty bye me lovelies & thank you so much for the congrats on my new DT I'm soooo excited!!!
Challenges I'm Entering......... - Anything Goes - Christmas
