New Challenge Fussy & Fancy - Happy Holidays

Good morning everyone,

Phew, it's Friday and one week from today we break up for the school holidays yay!!  I am still busy playing catch up and have seven more Christmas cards to make, I love making Christmas cards, but I will be pleased when they are done, note to myself to make them earlier next year!

Today I am joining the Team A girls at Fussy and Fancy for the last challenge of the year. Our theme is 'Happy Holidays' which is being sponsored by My Besties and Sweet Lilac Flowers.

I have coloured up this cute  Besties image 'Penny Penguin' and coloured her with DI re-inkers. The shape has been cut from a Go Kreate die. The papers are by Maja and are this years new Christmas range, which have been edged with some structure paste.  The Eight Point die and tags are by Joy, from Noor Design U.K. The lace, ribbon, pom pom trim, oval pearl string, magnolia flower, roses, wine silver fir cone charms are from the Ribbon Girl.

DI list:
Skin: Vintage Photo, Tattered Rose, Worn Lipstick
Hair: Walnut Stain, Antique Linen
Dress: Hickory Smoke, Weathered Wood
Penguin: Black
Bows: Aged Mahogany, Spun Sugar

I hope you have had a good week.

Thank you for popping in, have a lovely weekend.

  1. Fabulous colour palette and detail Gina.

  2. Another gorgeous card Gina with an adorable image. Love all your beautiful embellishments.
    Enjoy the rest of your weekend.
    Hugs Sharon. x

  3. Love the blue/grey colour of the card Gina, it makes the other colours really pop.
    I make Christmas cards all year too but I still have a couple left to make - I don't know where the time has gone this year.

  4. Can I just ask Gina is that a stamp or a digi image ? As when I use DI on digi images the image bleeds any ideas ?
    Love your work !!!

    1. Hi Julie, thank you for your lovely comment. I have used a digi image. If your ink bleeds, I would suggest your printer ink is the problem. It took me along time to find a printer where the ink wouldn't bleed using DIs and I finally found an Epson WF-2010 which works perfectly. I hope this helps.
