Surfing the Yule Tide!!!

Morning Peeps!!
I am a bit late in blogland this morning as Little Mo and I were so snuggled up comfy watching our Anice do her Funky thing over on C&C that we almost forgot to go to school!! ooops ! :)
But don't worry if you missed Anice's 8am slot if you were still in beed because she is back on again at 1pm to show the new Twelve Crafters Crafting and some great deals on the other papercraft factory cd roms too!!!

I wanted to share this manly little card I made using the Angel on the Tree colourway from Twelve Crafters Crafting. Man cards are soooo hard but these little penguin dudes are way too perfect for the job!! and  I decided they looked like they were surfing!!
Within the fabby domain that is the workspace on the program I added my own little sentiment by writing a bit at the top with the writer and then adding the Yule Tide digi stamp!! Love it!!!!

I printed them out and mounted them onto a couple of different papers from the cd rom and then popped them up on a bit of foam tape for added poppingoutness!!!!!!! and added a cut out sprig of holly from the coloured digi stamps in the workspace.

I made a matching inside for the card by using the merry christmas sentiment digi and the uncoloured penguins. I love how it came out and finished the inside of my card (....mmmm please excuse the shadow of my camera bumping off the white inside!!!)

I am entering this cutie in a couple of challenges....

Papertake weekly- 1st Christmas cards of the year
Cards for Men- Its nearly christmas
Tip Top tuesdays- anything goes christmas

Don't forget to tune in to C&C at 1pm and see Anice demo the new Twelve Crafters Crafting cd rom, at the weekend Little Mo will be sharing some of his makes from using it. I cannot say enough how fab these papercraft factory cd roms are for mini sized crafty peeps. he is just 6 years old and has so much fun making things using them. He has made a lovely start on his christmas cards for his friends and thinks its fabulous that he can "pooter write" the names of his little friends on the front!! too cute!! and fabulous as they are so personal. So if you want a crafty program for you little peeps head straight for Funky Hand.

Now I am off out to my crafty garage, bit cold here so have saved my tumble drying to do while I am out there!!! it warms my little crafty garage up a treat!!
