Caroling Penguins


I've had a fun week, not !!  - I rung up Outpatients, who informed me the next available appointment to see my Rheumatology Consultant was in March - I don't think so !!, especially after they cancelled on me, as the Consultant was sick and  I was promised they would set up a special clinic for those of us who were cancelled (well guess what they haven't !!!), so after a quick phone call to the Rheumatology nurse - they miraclously found me an appointment for Tuesday 18th December at 2.50pm.

When I saw Cupcake Crafts Challenge was Black, White Plus One, I had a rumage among my stamps and images and found this sweetie and although i don't own it, i may have to go and purchase it, as i had fun playing with it - the snow on the ground and on their hats is Flowersoft - Polar White Fine and Liquid Pearls - Pearl White for the falling snow. The papers are really old, I think about 5 years ??, they are DCWV - Black & White Prints and i have used them lots. The Ribbon is from The Ribbon Girls, Punched Edge MS - Snowflake, Snowflakes are Marianne D and i've covered them in glamour dust.

Cupcake Craft - where the Challenge is 'Black, White Plus One Other' - I chose 'Red'

Penny Black Saturday Friends - where December's Challenge is 'Glitter And Sparkle'

Simon Says - where the Challenge is 'Anything Goes'

Papertake Weekly - where the Challenge is 'Sketchie Free For All' - I've followed Dawny's Sketch

Oldie But A Goodie - where the Challenge is 'Let It Snow' - my oldie item is the paper and punch

Sweet Stampin' - where the Challenge is 'Snowflakes And Ribbon'
