Stampin' For the Weekend - Feeling Festive!


It's time for a new challenge at Stampin' for the Weekend and it's time for a Christmas Challenge.

I love love love Christmas!  I can't wait to put our Christmas tree up next weekend. We have a family ritual which includes a trip to the garden centre for everyone to pick a new ornament, followed by some cake and drink, then back home to decorate the tree.

The children pick such odd ornaments, they used to look at bit out of place with my pre-children, sophisticated all-gold colour scheme, but now I love the mix of random things on the tree, including the Christmas Sheep!  I can't wait to see what they pick this year.

Anyway our festive challenge is sponsored by the amazing:

Here's my card:

You're going to be seeing a lot of this little penguin as I think he is super cute, with a touch of glossy accents on his feet and nose!  He's from Kitty Bee Designs!  I even think he could be a she coloured up pink (obviously!)  I love all the sparky paper too, you can never have too much glitter on a Christmas card!

So come one what are you waiting for - time to start making those Christmas cards!! I can't wait to see what you all make.
