Penguin Party!

This is my final blog post of the year as I am having a little break over Christmas, and today I have a card and a couple of Christmas cushions to show you. 
I love penguins and have a big collection of penguin digi-stamps, but I don't colour them up very often as I always struggle with black/grey, it's either too dark or not dark enough, but I soooo wanted to use this adorable image that I decided to bite the bullet and go for it.

Please excuse the pics, as it is very dark and dismal and I've had to use my daylight lamp.

Image - Penguin Party - Sugar Nellie at Funky Kits
Papers - Warm Hearts - Just So Scrappy
Sentiment - Christmas Scriptalicious sentiments - Pink Petticoat
Tonic geared border punch - Gothic border
Lawn Cuts - Stitched snowflakes
Ribbon, gems and diamanté buckle - Meiflower

I am entering my card into the following challenges
The Sugar Bowl Challenge - anything goes with a Sugar Nellie image
Card Mania -  Christmas

Here are a couple of cushions I made, once again using patterns and instructions from the
As I've said previously, it's been a long time since I used a sewing machine, the angel and snowman are stitched on by hand and the cushion covers are simple envelope backs, so I only had to use the machine to stitch around the edges.

I am entering the cushions in this challenge
All Crafts Challenge - Anything goes, but NO Cards

I would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you to everyone who has left a comment throughout the year, they really make my day and encourage me to keep on doing what I do, so thank you very much.

Merry Christmas and a happy and healthy New Year to you all,
Colette xx

Yay, you finished them, cushions look great! Card is gorgeous, I love this little Penguin, he is so cute - but difficult to colour- you have done a fantastic job! I too have been struggling to take a photograph in this dismal light (that's why I couldn't give you your cards yesterday lol ) Hope your feeling better today. x Have a lovely Christmas and All the Best for the coming year.
