Sugar Nellie - Penguin Party!


Hi Lovely Blogging Friends..

Today it's my turn to share a make at Sugar Nellie... and for this one I chose to use the gorgeous Penguin Party...  available from Funky Kits HERE.  As penguins seem to be very popular at the moment, and as I haven't used one for a long time, I thought I needed to dig out my black and greys - and some blues too - as they live in BRRRRRR.... cold places!!
Supplies: Image - Sugar Nellie Penguin Party, Paper: LOTV Frosty Christmas paper pad, Martha Stewart punched snowflake, Lil' Inkers Stitched Square die, Glitter and Gem
Copics: penguin - C1, C3, C5, C9, 100  Feet  and beak -Y35, YR24  Scarf and Hat -B60, B12, B91, 
Holly and Parcel  - G82, YG11, Berries - R46, Shading - N0, N2, N4

Now then... I didn't own up yet as to what I bought at the Harrogate Papercraft Show.... so here's a pic below:

More than I meant to get, as I really just went for a mooch around!!  It was fabulous that some lovely crafters (Lorraine and Stacey) recognised me from my blog pic and said hello so we could have a quick chat...  and I also met up with Avril B too and had a natter!

And I also have to own up that I had a little spend lately at Simon Says Stamp - and Clearly Besotted too.... oooh and I found a fabbie new site to order from - Sprinkle -Twinkle (what a fab name - and such quick service too).  More details on them when I use the gorgeous Lawn Fawn stitched snowflake die I got from them in the very near future!

But isn't it odd that after all that spend - it's the small things tickle me most!!  I got some glitter emery boards - and one is PINK!!  They are seriously GORGEOUS!

OK... enough rambling from me!!

Have a lovely day and Happy Crafting!

Big hugs


  1. Such an adorable, gorgeous card.

  2. How utterly, utterly adorable! Such a sweet card.
    And those be some scrummy crafty goodies! I had a wee spend at the Craftwork cards stand too, but I found that apart from those (and LOTV of course), there was a distinct lack of paper pads this time!
    Also, pink sparkly emery boards? What's not to love? x

  3. Gorgeous card Christine,, super cute penguin.
    Great new crafty stash too - enjoy!
