This week I'm going for two challenges in one. This is my first entry for the Caardvarks blog whose challenge 'Colour It' links nicely with ABC's 'I for Indigo'. So, here is my Indigo penguin (which I think looks great in blue). I've popped him up with foam stickies on some homemade snowflake paper. And finished it off with a Christmas sentiment and a bit of white floss.

If you'd like to make your own snowflake paper you can download the transparent gif 'free' from my Download Page or see sidebar.
Also, to celebrate my new illustration set 'Birds Of A Feather' at squigglefly you can pick up a pre-coloured clipart version of Penguin too.


I am so excited to let you all know that I have started illustrating for squigglefly. As you may have seen from my freebies (which I've moved recently to their own page) - I enjoy doodling and messing around with Photoshop.

I would also like to give a shout out to Brooke from Magnolia Grace who has been wonderful, encouraging me in my stamp design. I'm using my Aussie spirit of 'having-a-go' and we'll see what happens next.

I've paper pieced 'Robin' using some lovely papers from Lindcraft. I think they are called Misty, and have a lovley watercolour paper texture.

I have two sets of images 'Birds of a Feather' & 'Celestial' due to be released December 5th. So in the meantime I'll give you a sneaky peak of what's to come.

My 'Birds Of A Feather' set has three images: Penguin, Robin and a Turkey. They come in both JPG's & PNG's. So, they are perfect for colouring or transforming into brushes! They also come with some hand drawn text.

So, I'll post again when I get my links from Ashley. But in the mean time you can check out the other new stamps released over at squigglefly.

CPS # 143 | Reindeer

I have been away from blog land and my craft stash for 4 whole weeks - boy did I miss it. Anyway, I'm back and its time for a CPS challenge. I'm using the super cute "Reindeer" by the wonderful Brooke over at Magnolia Grace. What a fantastic surprise it was to find a whole bunch of digital stamps in my inbox just waiting to be printed out. Thanks Brooke.
So, here goes. I've added faux 'Kwerner' stitching; ribbon with a fancy knot; and a sentiment for the circle element.


Edit: I just had look over at 365 cards and the new challenge 'knots' fits my card perfectly. I must have been picking up Pam's subliminal thoughts when she made her card. Check out the blog here. Also, Pam is looking for a new DT team. Good Luck everyone!
