1st Christmas Card of 2011

Good Afternoon everyone, hope you are all having a lovely Sunday. Bit dull and rainy her in Liverpool today so it has given me plenty of time to go blog hopping and do some crafting.
I have have made my 1st Christmas card as the title suggests. I fell in love with this image over on a friends blog last week so off I went and ordered it from Pink Gem Designs, you can find him HERE.

I also bought the sentiment stamp and penguin backing paper from Pink Gem Designs (the papers are a digi and are just fab). I coloured Penguin in with my promarkers and then used a quicky glue pen on the present and tree and his hat so I could use my glitter to give it a bit of bling.
The snowflakes DP are from the CC cute christmas collection (I had this printed out to use on another project but hijacked it for this one instead).
