Christmas is coming...

Well that's another fortnight that has flown by. Where is all the time going? It's probably a good job that the next challenge over at Aud Sentiments is a Christmas one, because the way things are going, it'll soon be here. (Shudder, I'm still waiting for summer!)
I have to confess every year I am useless when it comes to Christmas cards, every year I say I'll start them early, and then December creeps up, and the rush job & panic of Christmas card making commences, usually the day before final posting!
So a Christmas challenge is a definite bonus, something that's going to start that ball rolling, and break the usual failing process!
For this challenge Aud Sentiments are so excited to have Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps as our sponsor. They are giving the winner their choice of 5 digital stamps. 

Here is a little bit about them...

Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps And More, a division of I Did It Creations, was created and is
owned by Robyn Weinrib.  Robyn offers a wonderful variety of digital stamps and digital papers, designed to meet the needs of all digital paper crafting addicts for every occasion.

OK, now onto the challenge. We want to see a card or project with a Christmas or Holiday Sentiment!

Robyns Fetish Digital stamps were kind enough to give the DT team some lovely stamps to work with (Big thank you). For my card I used Paul Penguin sleighing and as his title suggests he does come on a sleigh, but I chose to cut the sleigh away for this card. He's cute, I have a soft spot for penguins! lol. I've coloured him with my Pro Markers, decoupaged him and added some pompoms to his hat.

He's been added to a few layers of various blue papers, some faux stitching, some glitter to sparkle up the snowflakes on the paper, some lovely blue pearls and finished off with a Christmas sentiment.
